Leaking toilet

I have a 2013 Jayco eagle and on our trip this past weekend the valve was leaking and the bowl was filling up with water. Itís a porcelain bowl and I went out today and I didnít see any markings on it as a brand. It doesnít look like it will be possible to replace a valve without removing the toilet. How can I find out what toilet is in it to order a valve?

I did find out it’s a thetford 42072. I also found that they can leak because of either low or high pressure. Whe I get home I’m going to connect the water and see if it still leaks

When I had to confirm the model data on my Thetford a couple years ago I had to place mirror behind the toilet to view the model number sticker, etc..

If you do have to remove the complete toilet to make a repair, make sure you have the complete seal kit for the model in question.

I had to replace my bowl seal (wouldn't hold water) last week in the middle of the National Forest..., glad I had a spare seal kit on hand (bowl seal & base flange seal). Truck tailgate made for a perfect workbench

That’s why I carry a complete set of replacement parts in my tool box.
