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.
