Antifreeze Tricckle Across The Floor....

So went to the tt yesterday to get some info off of the toilet for a recall Thetford has on the upper toilet valve. The problem with the valve is when you are filling the bowl with the pedal pushed half way down, water will intermittenly run out of the top of the valve and spill onto the floor. Thetford is aware of the problem and sends owners new valves upon request. Anyway, the problem....I found a very small trail of antifreeze that came from somewhere behind the toilet. The weather here has warmed significantly and I am sure the pipes have defrosted. I guess my question is, do you all think I have a broken pipe somewhere? My wife is trying to be reassuring by saying that the antifreeze probably just leaked out of the top of the defective valve. I winterized the tt myself for the first time in the fall. I watched plenty of videos and asked lots of questions to owners so I am 99% sure I did it right. I am planning on towing her home in a couple of weeks for the annual cleaning/waxing/maintainance stuff, so I will know more then. Any opininons on this would be welcome.

If there is antifreeze in the line it has to be the valve.
