Toilet not holding seal constantly flushing

So we have a Globetrotter 2022 FBQ, and our toilet started to get clogged from some TP that we were trying out. Well we took a stick to push down the tp and unclog it. Well while pulling out the stick we are not sure if it hit the gasket or something, because it started to constantly flush and drain as if the valve w-as held open. It looked like there was a gap between the valve and gasket. So i pulled out the gasket and cleaned it. re-inserted it, but it seems that water is still getting past it and going around the valve. It seems like its an easy fix. I just dont know what I need to do.

Toilet Work

Please post a picture of your toilet. There were several Thetford models used in Airstreams.

I have an Aqua Magic II. I replaced the waste ball seal and the floor closet seal last year and then this Spring, the white waste ball would not retract and the pedal froze.

It was easier to replace the whole toilet than to fix it.

Let us know what you have. Considering the newness of your trailer, the manufacturer Thetford may help you under warranty if it is a failure.

I believe your toilet seal just pulls off of the ball and is easily replaced. You may have dislodged the seal and it will work fine once it's put back into place. I've attached a YouTube video link that shows hot it's done.
