Plumbing leak

I have a 2011, 23' FC FB, and the toilet occasionally leaks from the fresh water line on the back side. I have checked the fittings as best as I am able and everything appears tight. Any thoughts?

I had a similar problem in a previous trailer & it turned out to be "sweating". A condition not very common but it can happen.

That is what I thought as well. I removed the toilet and hooked it up in my garage to the water hose. Left it there for a week and not a drop. Then I put a shutoff in the connection to the toilet in the trailer and left the water on for a month. Not a drop. No amount of "jiggling" caused a leak.

Then I thought it was the water pressure at the park. Bought a regulator. After weeks still no leak. Then while boondocking it all of sudden started to leak again. After pulling the front cover I noticed the water was leaking from the blade mech on the toilet. Clean water only. Now I just replaced the blade mech and we will see.

Good luck.

My guess would be your toilet flush valve is bad. They are often short lived. I replaced one in mine last July. The replacement is now leaking.....the first one would leak a lot of water when flushing. The one now only drips a drop or two.
