I've used one for a couple years.I made up a 1"t with 2 hose outlets.That way I can use two 5/8 hoses which are easier to store.When I first got it I tried with one 5/8 hose and found the pump would heat up and shut off.At the time I was pumping about 75' to a cleanout.In cold weather I found I had to store the hose in a warm place or end up with a frozen mess.

Man this camping stuff is allot of work. Got home from Spot X Sunday Night....Unloaded.....Home from work Monday....Washed truck and trailer......Home Tuesday......Wait a minute its Halloween, Dang it have to wait another day to try the pooper shooter.....Wednesday. Holly cr@p batman this thing works. It was pumping just as fast as my garden hose was filling the black water tank. Things were working in perfect harmony so I let one pump and one fill for 20 min than shut the garden hose off and in 5 min the tank was empty. Love this thing already.
Note, 5/8 garden hose is all the diameter you need.

Senoir Donno:

I hear ya...as far as this week, the only part of it that flying by is all the time EXCEPT at work...geesh.

Good to hear you got all your "stuff" cleaned out! Are you postively sure that the 5/8" hose will output quicker than the hose going into the tank to flush? I'd hate to find out that there was just that little discrepancy whilst I go frolicking around doing something else!

Now I gotta get one- no boudt-a-dabout it. Thanks buddy...and I thought you were my friend.

Used mine last week with a 3/4 inch hose. This thing pumped the tank dry in 3-4 minutes. I was so happy to drive by all the lines at the dump stations yesterday on the way home from Glamis. One of the best purchases I've made for making the RVing experience easier.

When brand new it may keep up with plain water in and out with a 5/8 hose.I found mine would heat up when emptying the black tank and shut down on overheat.With 2 hoses in tandem I didn't have that problem.My brother had the same results.I guess it depends how far and high you are pumping.Another problem I had was hair building up around the impeller shaft.Getting sidetracked with a hose filling a holding tank is never a good idea.

The overheating surprises me. I'm wondering if you don't have enough voltage or wire size to handle the current. Mine has ran through 2 tanks at one time without getting hot, one tank of the real thing and another with a lot of water to help flush, not to mention emptying the grey tank too. This thing pulls about 20 amps so it takes a good battery and large gage wire if you run the power cord very far. I have used a 3/4 hose and a 5/8 hose together to go 125 ft, just not uphill, maybe thats the issue.

I used 15'of#12 with alligator clips to the battery.When new it worked fine but after a while it started overheating and shutting down.If that happened while distracted it could be a problem.

I agree, it would really make a mess.

I used 10 gauge for about a 12 ft run but I only use mine when we go to New Mexico each year and then usually only twice to dump the black tank while camping there so it doesn't get used a lot. Thanks for the insight.
