Aqua-Magic Style II Toilet wont stop running

I recently purchased a 2011 Four Winds 23U with 11,000 miles from Camping World. The toilet will not stop running. I've read that a lot of people have problems with the water valve. Is it worth replacing the water valve or should I just replace the toilet as the problem seems to be recurring?

After you flush, use the top of your foot to push the pedal back up. It should stop the water flow.

The problem with the Aqua-Magic Style II Toilet is poor design. Even if you replace the valve, or purchase the exact same new toilet, it will eventually happen again.

Hard water eventually causes the gasket to not slide as easily on the valve ball. The weak spring used in the valve cannot overcome the drag, so the valve stays a tiny bit, (or alot), open.

Whatever you do, don't leave the coach with the flush valve on. it will flood.

I just replaced the valve. Easy job took about 20 minutes. I got the replacement valve on E-Bay for $23.00.
