Toilet woes....

Okay so my worries about my fridge were moot. Newest concern is my toilet. Any one have a problem where as after flushing, the valve closes, but water keeps rushing in. It has occurred many times at this point and after repeated stepping on the lever it eventually shuts off. The real problem occurs when the kids use it and don't realize water is still flowing. Any thoughts on this one?

It is most likely sediment preventing the valve from closing completely. This seems to be a common problem with unfiltered water and RV's.

ALWAYS use a filter when hooked up to city water. Even when you fill the fresh water tank use a filter.

2X

Check if there is anything preventing the valve from closing all the way. You can try putting some olive oil on the valve and opening and closing it a few times to lube it. Olive oil will not hurt the rubber.

But it has to be extra virgin olive oil!

Can you use a stick of margarine instead of olive oil?

No need to bring your own margarine. I used the corn on the cob butter brush to lube the valve. The margarine never touches the bowl.

Good question! I'd prefer "I can't believe it's not butter" since I'm supposed to be watching my cholesterol.
