First off, Welcome to IRV2!

Adding one might be possible but you will probably have to turn the discharge outlet 90 degrees to point straight out the door. There is enough room on mine to add a 6" clear section and a third waste gate valve so there may be enough room for a macerator. I've never been interested in one due to the slower discharge than a 3" hose but it would be very helpful if you have to pump the waste a long distance.

You will love it .. No more dragging around and storing that antiquated Dinosaur of a hose.

Consider a portable setup. I carry mine as kit in a tote in the basement. The pump is not expensive and uses a standard water hose. I primarily use mine at home after a trip and route it into the septic system. At parks I use the Wastemaster system because I like the cam lock feature.

Setting up the portable takes a few minutes but it is handy when the standard sewer connection is not nearby.

I've a DIY portable setup. Only use it when dumping to a distant point or similar. Otherwise the stinky slinky is fine - and fast.

I added the Sanicon Turbo 600s to our 14 and have zero regrets. I don't find it takes long at all to drain either tank and if it is a day of laundry we will leave the grey tank open and it drains through the macerator without it being on.

One of the best features to me is not having to set up anything with the unit. Stays attached to the sewer system on the coach, pull it over to the drain in the ground and away you go. Clean, no mess, nothing.

We added a 90 degree clear section that is attached to the outlet on the coach and the 3 inch hose that came with the pump attaches to the clear section. Ran the power to the house batteries and put a remote control switch in the middle to turn the pump on and off. The remote control is for turning the unit on and off from inside the coach, along with powered gates for the grey and black tank individually.

Based on recommendations I bought this Flojet for our previous TT because we ended up at a few parks where there was no sewer (for an extended camp) or in a couple cases our Airstream sat so low the sewer conn was ABOVE the waste valves. After purchasing it I never once pulled it out of the nice carrying case it was in and sold it with the camper a few years later. I guess I see the appeal of having a smaller hose to deal with, etc; but dealing with the slinky is not that big a deal to me and our Phaeton tanks can run for days without filling up.
