I'm confused. Why would you want an 110v A/C macerator when most of the time you will be dumping off of shore power? A 12v DC macerator works great in those cases.

Only interested in using it at home instead of having to drive to a dump site. I am under impression you have to hook up to battery for 12 volt, seems like a hassle.

macerator from a garbage disposal .. He had a few pics and looked easy to

Its really no hassle.

I have a small 12v lawn mower battery that has a built in handle for it.

I just set it down, clip on the wires from the macerator, and I'm off and running. Makes it very portable.

That is what I will do. Seems obvious after you wrote it but I did not consider that, I was thinking coach batteries. Thanks

If you have a light in your wet bay you can tap into it with a female cigar lighter fixture. Attach the male cigar lighter fixture to the macerator.


Turn on light-it turns on macerator.

Ken, I have used my emergency booster/starter for this kind of thing. It's self contained, has good leads, and recharges from 110VAC.

RV macerator pumps both "macerate" and "pump"
Garbage disposals "macerate" but they don't "pump"...relying on gravity to drain.
Me thinks a garbage disposal will work great....but only if/when the sewer drain is down hill from, (lower than), the RV tank drain valves AND the garbage disposal.

Re the pumping feature of disposalls , I'm not sure that is always the case .
My dispose all here at the house does pump and the Homemade example seems to pump. At least through the garden hose set up given .. In the homemade setup , gravity does feed the macerator about the same as my unit in the home . The macerator that I had in the RV needed a sturdy suction hose as It would suction
faster than than gravity could feed it . Your point on feeding the macerator may be correct .
Kudos to don 2346 for finding the link !

Permanently install the macerator pump in your MH and you will never go back to gravity dumping again. Yes they use 12vdc so you will have to leave the house battery connected during the dump but what the heck.
I installed the SAN-I-Con Box mount system on my coach. The hardest part was running the power up to the battery. I could have went a different route but I wanted to ensure I had power directly from the battery. I also installed a resettable fuse/circuit breaker inline.

It's about $500 but it has all the fittings and hoses with it. You will have to go out and fit a AC Macerator with hoses and fittings and adaptors to work and then you can only use it at home.
