Unhappy toilet leaking at base

Does anyone have a rough idea of repair costs? Did not winterize correctly and
where the toilet pedestal sits on the floor there is leakage. I would also appreciate any info on how to contact Vinnie who belongs to this group. I had an incorrect phone number. Thank you! I'm freezing my fanny off in the fairgrounds in Grass Valley. Thanks for any help you all can offer.

It is probably not at the base since no water sits there and the bowl has a lot of expansion room. I would guess the flush valve back behind the toilet is leaking and running water down around the base. I had the same problem and when I went to an RV store to buy a new one the guy said they sell a lot of the valves for improperly winterized toilets.
It snaps out of the toilet buy pressing in on the two outer prongs, then pull the assembly out. Then you have to disconnect the hoses, or do that first. basically a 15 minute repair job. There are some threads about it on the forum.
