I have read that using the black tank chemicals that come in the little "pouches" will totally clogged the Sani-Con pump. Apparently the pouches do not totally dissolve, so I have never used them. Once the empty pouch clogs the pump, it only takes a short time to ruin the pump running it dry!

So... if when I connect a water hose to the water-hose intake attachment, no water goes in, then I've got a clogged condition?

Also, when I depress the rocker switch for this operation, nothing happens - no noise, to vibration, no... nothing - then either I've a popped circuit breaker or a blown fuse or a burnt-out pump?

An by the way, there is nothing in the Owner's Manual or the provided manuals that discuss/ display the operations in any way of any value. Basically only a paragraph of … nothing!

I did not get rid of it to free up space. I got rid of it because it's completely unnecessary for me. I have had zero need to pump uphill. The standard big gravity dump hose allows the tank clean out good (there were solids building up as the infamous poo TP from prior owners), I get no mess with standard hose either. I just prefer simple. Gravity is simple. You are correct, different strokes.

I think you are referring to the 1" outlet from the sanicon...whereas the few of us that removed it are talking about the 3" INLET into the sanicon pictured here (someone else's wet bay with the left end disconnected from sewer outlet but still connected to sanicon - I actually took the sanicon panel off too)

I'm not sure what you are saying. The big 3" hose always stays connected to the outlet from the coach. Therefore no possible leaking, and the 1" hose after putting the garden hose cap on the end of the adapter that goes into the sewer makes it a self contained unit. When I go to leave I just pull it all in and it sits to the right of the outlet in my coach. The fact that it is clean and dry makes it worthwhile to me.

just trying to make sure we are not mixing up the meaning of the 3" hose...

There are two involved in this discussion that I saw and think some got mixed up...

there's the old style 3" stinky slinky that typically is hooked up outside the wet bay and
there's the 3" short hose in the wet bay that runs from the sewer outlet to the sanicon inlet...

just trying to clarify and hope this helps others --- after all, so far, we can still do what we feel is best and there's more than one right way

I think what Bill is saying is there is no usefull storage space in there, so what difference does it make if there is 3 or 4' of 3" hose sitting on the floor of the compartment. I'm with him!
