Mascerator fuse location little help please

07 Beaver Marquis and the mascerator pump was running slow then stopped. I believe it may have blown a fuse. Does anyone know where the fuse might be located? I looked in panel under drivers cargo door and in the closet but didn't see one labeled like that. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

safe travels all

My 08 Contessa is located in one of the 12v panels near the AC panels inside the coach. Labeled Sanicon

My 05 Imperial has a circuit breaker for the Sani-Con located in the engine run bay, right side in a plastic box. It was not labeled in any way.

On the '06 Dynasty, it's in the rear run box on board #4, and is a 20 amp fuse. Not where you'd expect to find it, but that's where it is on ours.

If the macerator overloads, it will slow, and when it slows the current goes up. If it stays elevated long enough, the fuse will go. I hope you can re-fuse it and get it to clear. We had ours actually stop on its maiden voyage, and it required disassembly to the point where I found an electrical staple in the macerator blade. Not a fun job!!!

Thanks for reply's guys. I did find the fuse location in rear engine panel as you described. Problem is I had a new unit put in two years ago. Why in the world they didn't use the fuse that was in from the factory is a mystery. There is no fuse where it is supposed to be wired to. They have the wiring going into a bunch of wires going up in the bay of the coach. I can't see where they go to?? Some mechanics have to make it more difficult than it needs to be?? Thanks again for reply's.

safe travels

I have answered this question a few times. Your problem may be different. On ours, my wife through detail floss down the toilet many times. The toilet stopped working, so I took it off and found the floss wrapped around the motor shaft. I took the motor apart and cleared it and all was well. It's an easy job once you get the toilet off and outside.

Running slow and then stopping kinda sounds like it's in the pump itself ... or at least that's where the problem starts.

It's a nasty job, but as RWeigant mentioned, you might want to check for blockage (ie, hair, floss, etc) wrapped around the macerator blades itself. I've had to clean mine several times from all the hair-clogs - and for once can say "I didn't do it" because.... I'm BALD!
