I use my RV toilet just like I used to use the one at home, but I do add a bit of extra water after each flush. Never a problem.

I drink the water from my fresh water tank too, otherwise why have one?

getting back to the OP's flood, we came close to having that happen last winter in Phoenix. Luckily I stepped into the commode room and saw the water was just ready to overflow the bowl. It was clean. And it took a little doing to get it to drop into the black tank because no air was able to get in. The valve had not closed completely and allowed fresh water to drip into the bowl, eventually filling it. We're very careful now to make sure it's closed.

glad you found it before! We are careful to take the extra few seconds to make sure everything goes down and fills correctly now...what a lesson to learn...lol

Unless you're operating on city water, wouldn't the pump running wake you up?

mcfarmall, we've spent 112 nights in our Eagle. 111 of them had hookups. But if we did dry camp the pump might wake me. The pump probably would wake me, but my DW slept thru a fire in her apartment building, smoke alarms, fire engines, the whole bit. Didn't know about the fire until she left for work in the morning. That was nearly 40 years ago. She sleeps a lot more soundly now!

woke up to flood in our rv...heads up...

I have instructed the DW and girls 6 & 8 to prefill the bowl. A lot more water going down with the paper and solids seem to help.
