Yes. The pressure switch is on the side of the accumulator tank.

Here is a pic and location.

Got into it today on the 35K. Thanks to my new best friend Woody, I went ahead and cut out the compartment floor in the rear passthrough.

This should have been done from the factory.
I was easily able to get to all of the components and do my work.

Replaced the bellows and seals, and all 4 duckbills. Thought I was really getting somewhere.

Then I fired it up and waited for the green light.
And waited
And waited.
And finally went back to check on the issue.

The #$=_<(*! Vaccum switch is leaking! The rubber seal is completely disintegrating. And guess what, can't buy just the seal lolololol!

Another 125 bucks, and more days to wait till parts come in.

So far, 600 for a toilet, 175 for a rebuild kit, 125 for a vacuum switch. That's 900 bucks kids.
If I didn't steal this thing I'd be upset.
What a silly system on a motorhome.

Got the new vac switch in the mail today from Marine Sanitation. They shipped it to me in 2 days for free. Cost 122 bucks, and came with a switch gear and a new tank fitting.

Took me a bit to get it in, had to take tank completely back out in order to get enough force to pop the switch into the new bung.
Hooked it up and gave it a test run. Pump ran for about 40 seconds and then went green! I flushed a few times and checked again, and got another green light. I turned it off and let it sit for about 90 minutes and checked again....still green!

So at least for now, my system is working. On top of that, I now know it inside and out for future repairs. Thanks for all the help from Woody.
Wish I could have my 900 bucks back instead of flushing it down the toilet.
I definitely would think twice about buying a rig with this system again, bit hopefully it will give me a few years of service.

Just an update. 5 days ago, I ran the toilet till I got a green light after my testing and flipped the switch off. I checked on it today and when I flipped the switch, STILL GREEN! That's amazing it can hold vac that long when its sealed correctly.
I think I can call this a done deal for now.
Good luck to any who come here after.
