Leaking toilet sealby Tom Jones
Does the residual water in your toilet all drain out? Or maybe you have an odor coming from the toilet. Before rushing out to buy a new seal or visiting the nearest RV repair shop, try the following.
Occasionally, a small piece of toilet paper will become lodged in the seal, preventing the toilet valve from fully closing and sealing. Open the valve and carefully clean around the seal. A small tool made from a bent coat hanger works for some folks, but be careful to avoid any sharp edges that might damage the seal. A plastic tool is available for the job. When nothing else is available, I've used a finger, but remember to thoroughly wash your hands when you're done.
