I had this happen and found it was the handheld sprayers valve was sticking intermittently and leaking on the floor.

Mine is not every trip. When it happens, it only happens at the beginning and then nothing after.

Installing the new foot valve

I think I have the exact same problem, a minor drip directly underneath the foot valve. I've seen a water droplet coming off the bottom of that black valve cover (or whatever it is; see photo; leak not included) under the foot valve. Did you install your own new foot valve? Is there a video or a website that will show me how to do this? Or is that something best left to the professionals?

I forgot about this old thread. For what it's worth, I resolved my issue by hand tightening the plastic compression nut by the toilet shut off valve. It hasn't leaked since.

So am a newbie and experienced the same problem while dry camping a few weeks ago. Note the trip was out for a total of 8 days, first four were dry camping, last four we had water and electric hooks ups. Same CG, different sites.

The water pooled on the left side of the toilet but was DEFINITELY leaking from either the flush valve or hose that connected the valve to the shut off. Could not figure out a patter when and why it would happen. I tried to tighten valve/hose connection but had difficulty getting pliars onto the fitting due to the proximity of the wall to the back of the toilet.

Suggestions would be welcomed!

Regards, Ed

Toilet is very easy pull to get at the valves and hose connections. The valves are pretty cheap so if I was pulling toilet I'd go ahead and get a new valve. When you install new valve make sure and use Teflon seal tape on the threaded hose connections. I do cold weather camp so I keep a spare flush valve in my tool bag.
