Hi. Dometic 310 or 320 on 2013 312bh. Not sure when this started but it's extremely difficult to fill the toilet bowl because the valve opens with very little pressure on the pedal. Any adjustments or is something broken?

You can do it but it takes multiple tries and the valve is still cracked open a tiny bit so you can only fill so much.

You also might want to check to be sure the ball is closing all the way.  It might need lubrication.

Occasionally our valve is sticky, and won't hold water. I take a "Scotch" pad and clean the rubber seal as well as possible. Then apply some plumbers or dielectric silicone grease to it. Seems to help a lot. 

Probably not a solution to your problem, but I had to through this in...
