Toilet issues

Last year I had a bad deal happened when my wife used the toilet in the middle of the night and it stuck on. Woke in the morning to sopping floors etc etc. bought a carpet shampooer and sucked up the water everything dried nothing wrecked

Now to the point the problem of the toilet was the slide valve that seals the bowl and then opens to drain was sticky. I tried many things to sort out. So update. I took a right angle awl and cleaned around rubber seal I then took a small amount 0:30 oil and placed in bowl. Actuated slide numerous times and after two months very cold temps the slide snaps back every time I use it yay!!!

Actually thought I would have to replace my toilet

we had the same thing happen but caught it after a small overflow .. maybe a gallon or two.. now who ever uses the toilet, after flushing we raise the leaver with our foot just to be sure.. its now a habit and since then, no more problems

Did that for a long time. Try my service and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. We have our grand kids can't trust them to flip pedal

Problem I've had in the past has been it wouldn't seal. Bought a seal kit for my Teton toilet & replaced it. Of course you have to clean out the you know what that's in the seal area. Once that was done I lubed the slide with a little lithium grease. Slide works great & no more black tank smell in the bathroom.
This isn't the first toilet slide I've had to replace in a RV.
