Hi all! Ended up buying an 09/10 825 in pretty nice shape a month back. The wife and I are currently on our way back from CO to Reno and learning the quirks of the camper as we go. Other than the LP setting not cooling the norcold fridge, which isn’t a huge deal, the one thing I noticed is that the toilet supply line seams to be loose at the connection to the toilet itself.

This is causing fresh water to leak onto the shower floor and fill the grey water tank anytime the pump is on or we’re hooked into city water. The connection coupling itself feels fully tightened, but there’s some play where the line seats and I can get the leak to stop/start by wiggling it around.

Unfortunately I can’t seem to find a way to actually get eyes on the connection without pulling the whole toilet out of the mount. Any ideas?

Cheers,
Hunter

Use a mirror! Turn off pump, open tap and when there is no pressure get a mirror and loosen the supply line to the toilet. Good chance you need a new washer. Find a plumbing supply or big box store and get a new one using the old one as a guide. It should be only a hand tight fitting with a good washer..

Thanks for the advice- I ended up replacing the whole connection unit for the water supply. Even got to reseal the shower and around the base while I was in there. Nothing more fun than taking the toilet out in the backcountry while the wife and infant are wondering if it’s all going to work out. [emoticon]
