I looked at toilet again to figure out how to remove it and the owner's manual for instructions, but didn't find any. Will probably bite the bullet and let the dealer do it under the extended warranty and pay the deductable.
It was not a recall, but rather a warranty issue. Once outside the warranty they will not cover it.

Thanks Again Crabman and everyone else for responding. If I could park my trailer at home, I'd probably try fixing it myself. I replaced toilets, sinks, etc. at home over the years, but I've always had access to power. Guess I'm slowing down in my retirement years and getting lazy! lol

Toilet Water Supply Line Leak

Thanks to everyone's help I replaced my water valve/water module today. Bought the part at a local RV dealer and saved myself some $ and time. Did have an appointment at our dealer where we bought the camper, but it was about an hour away. I also notice there was an O ring missing on the old valve where the water went to the toilet bowl. I wonder if the leak could have been coming from there? Anyways, thanks again everyone for answering a fellow camper in distress! LOL :hihi:

Glad to help. Changing out the valve is a relatively easy job. And the problem with going to dealer with these minor problems even when IN warranty is the time and expense involved in towing your rig there, possibly having to leave it, come home and go back later. Fuel costs can add up quick making the repair yourself more cost effective.
