Toilet Lid Leak

We did our first trip in our new 174 BH......after the first day, water would come out under the toilet lid when we flushed onto the floor?

Do I need a better lid?

Is the water pressure to high?

Thanks

If you are connected to a outside water supply, it could be that the water pressure is too high.

Do you have a pressure regulator in line with the hose from the spigot?

If you are only using water from your tank, via the pump, then I don't think that's the issue

I have a 174 BH.......very simple setup......it was our first trip......not sure about the water regulator?

Maybe if I close the faucet some where I hook up to the trailer?

So you are saying you are hooked up to a water spigot (city water)?

If that is the case, you will want to get a pressure regulator, either at the faucet, or at the point where the hose connects to the RV. RV water lines are only rated to 45 - 50 PSI, whereas, city/housing water faucets are much higher. Being hooked up for prolonged period without a regulator can lead to blown lines in the RV

And they're not expensive at all. Online it looks like $8.07, and my local Walmart has them in stock and on the shelf. Get one today! Actually surprised your dealer didn't recommend one.

If it's a Dometic toilet, there was a defect in production a couple of years ago. They were spraying over the bowl edge when flushed. Sounds like one of the bad toilets. A friend had a Jayco with one of these, and after a couple of complaints and the dealer verifying the problem, they got an authorization to replace the toilet. No problems thereafter.

We just bought a Dometic/SeaLand 310. I think the model 300 was the one with several problems.

I like to install my pressure regulator on the campground hose bib so I don't over pressure the hose either. Also, it seems those cheap regulators go bad about once a year so I also use a pressure gauge so I can monitor it. I put the gauge on the trailer end of the hose.

Some people use an expensive adjustable regulator that is more reliable. I bought one once then left it on the hose bib at a campground. Since then I just make do with the cheap ones. If I leave it I haven't lost much.

I do the same. Curious news to me regarding the cheap regulators going bad. I have been using the same old brass pressure regulator (45PSI) since 1998. Never had a problem with, it still reduces the pressure. Though because it still works good, I don't bother looking at whats new and available in that department, so perhaps the 'cheap' ones you talk of are different.

I use the cheap ones as well, I did have one go bad it wouldn't allow any water to go through it. I tried to clear it but couldn't, cheap enough to go buy a new one intead of trying to re-engineer the old one.

You sure about this? My stock Shurflo onboard pump is rated/pumps it up to
55 psi.

Once again, proving that axiom of "it was always that way in the past." I was going off information I had routinely learned from past/other rigs . Upon further checking, I have learned even my rig has lines have max pressure 60PSI and I assume I have the same pump, as my pump maxes out at 55PSI.

The plumbing in my trailer says 100PSI @180 degrees and 145PSI @73 degrees. I don't plan on it ever getting that high.


I think most PX tubing carries the same ratings.


I don't know why I have such a high failure rate on the cheap regulators. Dirt in the water or something maybe. I just toss it and get a new one. I've actually had better luck with the plastic regulators than I have with the brass ones. Maybe they don't corrode as easily.

I have camped in parks that had 90 to 110psi. That's to much for my personal comfort without a regulator.

Here at my house, on the supply side of the whole house regulator, I have nearly 110 PSI most of the time. Peaks around 125PSI at times. When we bought the house about 4 years ago the old owners didn't even have a regulator. Guess they got lucky because they claim it never caused a problem. First thing I did was install one and set it at 40PSI.

I've also been in campgrounds with as little as 15PSI. I couldn't even get water to flow thru the regulator. I guess the pressure has to be above the pressure setting of the regulator to get anything out of it.
