I got a reply from Reece. He says it was a known issue where the hot water tank relief valve was not releasing pressure low enough and was causing issues with the pump and toilet. They've started to add in a check valve at the cold water connection for the hot water tank.

ETI is sending me the check valve and apparently I'll have to rent a pex banding tool to install it.

Follow-up:

The check valve seems to be the solution. We have had no issues with leaking at all during the five nights of camping.

I have noticed that water does leak from the hot-water tank's relief valve during the heating-up process; I assume that's normal. It stops after the water comes up to temp.

I would like to add a check valve at the cold water connection for the hot water tank. Can anyone post a picture of the check valve or the part # that I can buy one at Amazon. Thanks.

The toilet leak during the flush is normally because of the damaged seal in the vacuum breaker. The damaged seal is unable to hold the water and cause a leak. You need to buy the seal and replace it for some RV. Check with the manufacturer to know about it. The initial seal leaking can be prevented with vaseline and rubber gloves. I have seen a product in the market called plumber grease as a substitute for the vaseline. Keeping the seal moist can be a preventive measure to avoid such leaks. The leaks can also occur from the crack after the winterization. I think porcelain is more prone to cracks. Check the valve and flapper too.
If you haven't found any damage in those parts, better get assistance from any professional plumbers. I'm afraid to do too many experiments alone. Anxious might it cause any further harm.
