If it is leaking right where it goes into the toilet, it is a fix it yourself job. The connection is a plastic wing nut. Just reach down and tighten it. If one of the PEX fittings between the shutoff valve and the toilet is leaking, just shut off the water to the toilet and use a waste basket or pan of water to rinse whenever you need to flush. A PEX crimping tool is handy and cheap at Harbor Freight. Again see how it works one or two times and it is an easy peasy do it yourself item.
A regular plumber should also be able to repair this, as long as he/she can get into the tight spots around an RV toilet. If you tow the trailer to the shop, it should be very inexpensive - a beer or two.
PS: under the sinks there is a plastic joint that secures the metal sink drain inside the PVC pipe that leads to the elbow. Check and tighten it once in a while. (or you will be ticked off when you pull out your rusty cast iron skillet... and have to wire brush it and reseason it from scratch).
