Hi folks,
2 questions.
1)Are these units as good as they sound? Seems like they can be cleaner and enable one to store more hose for longer reaches in the same amount of space as the hose is smaller in diameter.
2)If so, are they able to used in Newmar DP's such as Mountainaire or Essex?

Thanks for your input!

I believe they can be used on most rigs. One of the advantages, that some people use them for is dumping their tanks when they have to at home, as they can run the hose into a toilet and pump it in. Not my cup of tea, but then I had a dump station put into my parking spot at the house.
Do a search (Google it) and check out the applications and pros and cons.

I installed one on my last motorhome and it was great. No more dragging the 3 inch monster in and out and being able to dump into any sewer connection up to 300 fy away and 12 ft of elevation if I remember correctly. Monoco offers it as an option and I bought their version which installed easily on my motorhome. The toughest job was to get the wiring done. I haven't added to my new MH yet but will as I get time. The lowest price is to call. They have to use the MSRP in ads and on line in order to protect Monoco and others in their option pricing.

Globetrotter, I like mine. I generally use dump stations at campgrounds, but when there isn't one, I use the RV Sanicon. Plus I can use it at home and pump directly into my septic tank which is 60 feet away and two feet higher than the coach. I made mine "portable", so I hook it up only when needed. The clear 3" elbow is a real benefit in the suction hose. Click on Photos at the top of the page, go to Member Galleries, and look at my pics. Give me a PM if you have questions. The RV Sanicon is well worth the investment.

Several of us have them and are very happy with them. So many times, you get to a campsite and the sewer connection isnt quite where you would like it. You either have to jockie the coach or run your 3" hose a good distance. With the Sanicon, you just throw it in the sewer connection and you are good to go. And like you mentioned, it takes up a lot less room in your bay. You can get one HERE

Like I mentioned call sani con and the price will be at least $50 less than on their web site or the one on the link sited. You can get the phone from Sani Cons web site
http://www.emptythetanks.com/order_online.htm

I just checked and I paid $416.35 with shipping by phoning in the order.

I've also been considering one of these but a search on another forum reveals some concern with the motors overheating. At least there are several posts referring to allowing the motor to cool between pumping the black and grey tanks.

Anyone here had that problem?

I first purchased one CW sold and it got so hot it tripped the internal breaker and I had to do several resets to get job done. I took it back and bought the sani-con and zero problems pumping. I might add that the sani con has a bypass on grey so it will drain the gray tank if you leave the hose in the sewer outlet during your stay.

OK. That's good to know. Also, I use a clear connector on my outlet so I can see when I've flushed the BW tank sufficiently. I guess you can still use the back flush with the pump but are you able to tell when you are pumping 'clean' water from the BW tank?

Thanks.

My unit cost about $180 and is portable. The clear elbow on the end of the 3" hose lets you see when the black tank is "clean enough" after flushing.

Here's a picture of my sewer bay with the Sanicon installed. I also have the clear elbow on the outlet which feeds into the Sanicon large hose.

for the Sanicon

Joe:

That is sure a clean and un-cluttered bay. I looked at the web page for the Sanicon and the price for the unit that connects directly to the sewer outlet vs. the one that has the 3" flex hose (similar to what you seem to have) is nearly $200 less. Both indicate they have the grey water bypass, same motor, etc. Can't see that that short piece of 3" hose adds that much to the price.

What am I missing???
