Small hose black tank discharge

I've been reading about using a small hose discharge system for my RV.
Both toilets have a macerator in my 2015 DSDP.
Any recommendations

After reading the pros and cons of it, I purchased the Sani-con system. The hose is 1.5 inch in diameter, can pump uphill, and extends 21 feet (but can attach more). I have one mascerator and one gravity fed toilet. For me, it was a space and sanitation issue. YMMV. Lots of opinions about this system on the forum. I am a happy camper with this system.

Having macerator toilets will still require a macerator pump to use the small hose if you want. Our rig came with a SaniCon, but I still prefer to use the large stinky slinky.

The water powered system Sewer Solutions needs no help macerator heads or regular. It just works.

SewerSolution® System, Boxed - Valterra.com | Valterra.com

The advantages over electrical macerator pump systems are: It is easy to install. Just a water hose and put it on the same place you attach the big hose. It stores in the water bay very easily. It has no moving parts so nothing to break or wear out and need replacement. It is less than $100.

Hi Golferdave78,
For me it is Sani-Con all the way. Converted to Sani-Con ins 08 and have been very happy. The unit has not been off the coach in all that time. Like HavingABlast posted, the storage of the Sani-Con makes it a no brainer. I do both touring and stationary camping. While nothing beats the 3" hose for speed, the Sani-Con wins on all other feature points. Sani-Con will pump about 10 gallons a minute.

We've been using the SaniCon system for 12 years now. With the small black tank on the Dutch Star, that fills quickly with the macerator toilets, I found a solution that works for me. I installed an electric gate valve on the black tank and ran the wires (comes with double switch set up) and wiring for the SaniCon into the 1/2 bath. When my tank gets full, I can dump both tanks (electrically) from inside the coach.

I thought this would be handy for dumping when the toilet red light came on at night, but I've found this is REALLY handy for the day we break camp. While I'm prepping the inside of the coach for travel, I can dump/drain both tanks from inside the coach. When I'm ready to leave, I just bring in the slides and put the hoses and power cord away.

Only a stinky slinky for me. I don't want to miss out on that self-cleaning suction.

Just ordered a Sani Con on Amazon for the new coach. Seems like it is a lot easier and cleaner to use than the slinky if not just because it's always hooked up.. Just a couple of 12v leads and a switch for initial installation. Just hoping it works as advertised.

Any recommendations>?

Yup, keep the 3" stinky slinkey.
But if you want a back up system for when it's a long way to .. The hole in the ground, and Up-Hill, to boot.

FLo-Jet portable type (make sure you have the clearance) that way you can use the 3" where it works and the 3/4" 50 (to 100) foot BLACK hose where it does not (go 1" if going over 50 feet). That's what I do.

NOTE: THe Flo-Jet, after the fcirst ust the impeller will size and it will blow the fuse when you go to use it again (After a period of non-use) this is easily over come.. on the "Bottom" of the motor is a slotted shaft, Turn it in the obvious direciton (The direciton the discharge comes off) using any flat tool, screwdriver, or coin (Quarter works well) one full turn before connecting. That fixes it.

With these systems, can you still use the black tank rinse while dumping? Does the Sani Con or SewerSolution drain fast enough to keep up?

Can't speak for the Sani Con but I flush my tank using the Sewer Solution with no trouble.

Golferdave 78 It is easy as can be. Even the DW goes out and uses it with no trouble.
