X's 2! I was told this by a technician: It just draws power that should be used to charge the house batteries.

When do a macerator "toilet dump" I am always at the toilet end and can have the flow shut of immediatly by my DW or any other party standing by the macerator pump switch, if I see anything going wrong. I made a toilet adapter from a curved washer discharge hose. I keep my foot on the top of the curved part all the time the pump is on. As noted before if we are not within direct voice range we use our radios or cell phones for communication.

The macerator on my current coach is built-in, but on my previous A's the aftermarket product just locked on to the regular connection where one would connect a stinky slinky. Both work the same way.

Ours is an inverter/convertor/charger. That means that with it on the thing not only allows all outlets to work but it charges the batteries. I will keep mine on even while hooked up to shore power. There are very few times that we turn it off.

I don't think there is such a thing as an "inverter/converter/charger." You either have an inverter/charger or an converter/charger. If you have an inverter, then it's probably an inverter/charger, which charges the batteries and converts 12v to AC.
