I purchased a 12v macerator pump from Amazon. com about 2 years ago. It comes with a remote (wired) control and a storage case. I use it at home to pump up a slight hill to my sewage clean out connection. Just add alligator clips to the input power wires and connect to your closest battery. The motor connects directly to your dump valve connection.

Great idea for new-bees.

Read a story about a couple and cherry eating. The maceration pump stopped working. The DW swallowed the stones.

Enjoy irv2.

Happy trails,

One disadvantage I have found with the macerator is my shedding hair.If it gets in the tanks it wraps around the shaft and binds the motor.Best to check for hair and remove before starting cause if the motor binds up while dumping the black tank it can be a problem.When that happens a cordless drill with a screwdriver tip will spin the pump.Close the black valve and open the grey.Pump a few minutes and close the valve.Dealing with grey is a little better than black.

For whatever reason you may have you don't have to use a battery. You could use a converter plugged into 110 and use the 12 volt output from that...just remember to use one that will handle the load from the pump.

I use a macerator pump whenever I have to dump at home since our septic tank is not accessible to the MH. I always use a clip on wafer valve ahead of the macerator to prevent spills when I remove it. It's also convenient if, for some reason, the macerator clogs and you have to remove it before completing the dump.
I agree that making the 12 volt connection to the macerator is a bit of a pain but it's a great solution.

We have a SaniCon in our rig as a factory installed option. I still prefer the slinky!!
