Question Low water flow in Thetford toilet

Has anyone had a problem with low water flow in their Thetford toilet. I have been traveling in my 08 Airstream for a couple of weeks now and no issue until today. I went to flush the toilet and hardly have any water pressure. I am hooked up to city water and both sinks have their normal flow. I disconnected from the city water and used my water pump. Same thing, sinks are fine but low flow coming out of the toilet. I took a q-tip and swabbed out opening where water enters. No difference. I checked the valve behind the toilet to see if it had accidently gotten turned but not the case. Any ideas???? Water is still coming out just very slowly----any help would be greatly appreciated! I have another 2 weeks on the road and can always use the shower head to help with flushing but not ideal---but hey--that's what camping is all about , right?

Take off the supply line where it goes into the flush valve and see if you have plenty of water there. If you do, I would guess the flush valve is clogged or simply bad.
