Thetford Bravura Leak

I have a leak in my Thetford Bravura I can't figure out. I have noticed some water on the bath floor after traveling. What I found is a cavity which is molded in the pedestal directly behind and above the flush pedal is full of water.

I follow the water trail up to the top of the blade valve body where the throat of the bowl rests in a cavity in the top of the blade assembly housing. It is really hard to see up in there (I don't have a lens that works at at that angle and distance).

The bowl holds water indefinitely, which confuses me.

1) Does the blade seal seal the blade as well as the connection between the bowl throat and blade body?

2)What is the mechanism for tightening the bowl to blade housing?

3) if the blade leaks, water goes into the black tank and not on the floor....right?

4) Can water get around the seal to the exterior of the throat during flushing?

This isn't much help:
