i have replaced that seal 3 times and it is leaking again. the utube video was a great help and the instructions that came with the seals iwas hoping some one would have a fix for it.

Most of the problems are debris in the seal and not the seal it self.
Thetford makes a tool called "bent screw driver" to clean it.
Cause of debris is sometimes linked to miss use. Too much toilet paper!
Make and model of toilet?

2 suggestions. First, open the flush valve all the way and rotate a toilet bowl brush thoroughly in the opening. If that doesn't work, the next time the ball valve is dry, pour a couple ounces of vegetable oil in and let it sit for several hours.

Is it possible that there's a lip or sharp edge damaging the seals?
Any obvious damage to the old ones?

Have you checked your flush mechanism (foot or hand)? While our seal is fine, it's our foot flush pedal that does not spring the blade completely shut. We have to get our foot under the pedal and lift up at the end of our flushing.

Try replacing the waste ball and waste ball drive. You need new drive to properly center the waste ball under the gasket. Otherwise you gotta lift it with your foot.
