Leaking toilet

I have an email to Escape but thought I would ask here too.

Our toilet has an intermittent leak. It seems to happen after flushing but I haven't been able to catch it yet. It's not a constant leak and it doesn't do it after every flush. I've gone into the bathroom and found about 2 oz of water on the floor that traces back along the toilet's right side (left as I face it). Directly under the valve seems to be dry and I might find a drop or two on the bottom of the supply line but no water on the floor below it. And it looks like if it was running down the supply line the leak would be coming out the left side.

This is not a constant leak and doesn't seem to matter if it's internal or external water supply.

Anyone else have a similar issue?

Any chance it could be the ceiling vent or window (if you have that option). Condensation??

We our trailer was built the fitting connecting to the toilet valve was cross threaded but only had a very small leak when seated on the toilet. You may want to remove the toilet and check this connection.

Thought we had a leak as well, and ETI inspected it last May. The valve was fine however sometimes the water jumps the bowl on flush. Our fix was to turn the shut-off valve slightly closed.

No, I thought about that but it's happening in dry weather and it's too much for condensation.

I think it would be leaking all the time and it's not.

I thought about this too but haven't seen it. I might watch that more closely.

Sure someone's aim isn't bad?
