We have a one year old Silverback trailer and the toilet ball seal is not sealing. Anyone have any tips on
how to get it to seal better before replacing it ? And how hard is it to replace ? thanks
A couple thoughts. Bend a wire into a "L" shape and gently clean around the seal. After that take some olive oil and lubricate the seal.
There are proably some other ways that someone else will come up with later.

You can also flush it, dry it off and rub vaseline on the seal. That will help it hold without having to replace it. We do that.

Been there and done that. All of the above work. I have also used WD-40. with the water off, spray some on the ball and then open and close it. I have also taken a small piece of sticky back velcro and stuck it on a finger of a rubber glove and used that to try and clean the seal and as much of the edges of the ball as I could.

I use a small piece of ScotchBrit and simply clean the bottom edge of the seal AND top of ball, then add a little Vaseline to seal. I suspect the R&R of stool to replace seal is timely, but simple. Probably best to replace wax ring IF you pull the stool. Good Luck. Johnny aka IOWASTROKER
