I've done this twice but would never give up my Sani-Con system. In 8 years I've never had my 3" hose deployed. Plus you never have to disconnect and store anything when leaving camp, love that aspect.

Duoglide1, great tip on the hose adapter. Never thought or needed it yet but makes since just to back flush the system a couple times a year. Thanks!

Macerator

One question. Are these things Metamucil approved?

Use a macerator when visiting the kids.Use two garden hoses connected parallel instead of larger hose.Pump 40 feet to sewer connection. Only problem I have is my shedding hair getting into the tank and wrapping around the shaft.

Purchase a fine screen shower drain cover add a touch or two of silicone to hold it in place over the existing drain. You'll be amazed at what it will capture. Your correct over time the hair will build up around the stainless impeller/chopper. One of my to do maintenance list once a year = Take the pump apart and clean lubricate both impeller and chopper. Easy peasy!

And you can see when the dump is complete and how well your rinse technique is working. The sanicon will make surging sounds when it's complete, and you'll see the hose writhing, but you can see as well thru the clear elbow.
Excellent idea, thanks! I already have a 45 clear elbow, maybe I'll be able to make that work in my bay. If not, a CW superstore is right down the road (dangerously close!)

Thanks again!

I just about bought a macerator more than 5 times in the past 10 years but every time I got close to it I didn't want to mess with adding a 12volt source next to it or stringing out wire with battery clips and so on. Also don't like the weight of the thing on my plastic waste dump. Building it in (attaching) permanently would be nice but again, didn't really have the time to mess with it.

Now I'm retired and fulltiming in a Class A and spend most of my time on my sons property set up approximately 90 feet from water, sewer, cable tv and data line connections.

I bought a Sewer Solution by Valterra to dump my tanks around 100 feet and slightly uphill...... say a 12" rise in the 100' run of the hose.

Been using this for 10 months now and what a pleasure to use. No power required, very light weight, can stay connected full time if you want. It's water powered and best explained how it works by just checking out their website.

High velocity water jet pulls sewage from the RV sewer pipe and ejects it out the discharge hose. Liquefies waste and tissue. Pumps up to 8 gallons per minute. No installation necessary. Just twist onto your RV sewer pipe in place of the cap. Requires min. 15 psi water pressure through standard garden hose. Includes fiberglass-reinforced ABS pump unit, 10' dump hose, garden hose quick connect with backflow preventer and adapter for connection to 3" and 4" dia. sewer pipes or 1" PVC pipe. Universal design fits vertical or horizontal sewer outlets.

Do some research online and you can buy it for under $100.00 but you'll need extension hose as well depending on your dump run length. 25' extension hoses can also be found under normal retail price by searching Amazon, sometimes even cheaper if an online RV discount parts seller is having a sale.

I have my 100' water supply hose coming from my sons house connected to a 4-way splitter. From the splitter one short hose to the Sewer Solution housing, another short hose to my black tank flusher, another short hose to my city water connection and a fourth 50' hose for washing the motorhome and the car from time to time. The sewer solution has a backflow preventer on it and as well as my black tank flusher connection is backflow protected.

The 4 hose splitter manifold has a shutoff valve for each of the 4 hoses as well.

When on the road nothing would be simpler than just using the stinky slinky at a dump station or at a campsite with a sewer connection right next to your RV but when circumstances arise and a long run for an extended time comes along I couldn't be happier going with the Sewer Solution.

For those that want to keep using those bulky stinky slinky's, go for it. No one is requiring you to change. Many new RV's now have the macerator's built into the toilets. We use the "Sewer Solution" system and after 30 plus years Ill never use the slinky again.

I found a Sewer Solution at a garage sale complete with an extension hose for $25. I bought it so I could dump my tanks at home, where my sewer connection is on the opposite side of the RV connection and slightly higher. It works eally good and I have been thinking about making it my sewer connection of choice in RV parks. I see other folks using them so they must work pretty good.

Well I'm sitting in the middle. I do like the Sanicon for traveling and short stays. Also find it handy in a lot Campgrounds in California where they seem to think crap flows uphill.

That said if we are parked for 2 weeks or longer I prefer the 3' hose for the better clean and that it is way quicker. Waiting for the Sanicon to discharge up 90 gallons of waste water does get a little old.

But the Sanicon is and can come in awful handy.
