I've been thinking () of adding a macerator pump connected directly to RV waste outlet where the sewer hose connects. The macerator pump would be stored inside the PVC sewer hose tube with a discharge connection coming out the side of the PVC pipe. Switch mounted inside the current valve compartment. Connect a 1" hose to the discharge connector and turn the pump on. Rinsing would be accomplished through the current back-flush system. Still deciding on where to store the discharge hose -- would like to carry two 25' sections.

Chief, we use a carrier I built from 4" SCH 40 PVC for the extra hose. We have a cargo carrier in the receiver hitch where we cary a 2'x4' doorstep/landing and campfire wood. I attached the tubing to the coach side of the carrier with U-bolts, drilled holes in the bottom side of the PVC for vents/drainage. Use 4" threaded adapter w/cap on one end and a 6" adapter with threaded end and cap to accomodate the turndown for the sewer hose.

OK Guys, why do you need this? What does it do for you besides allow the waste to flow through a garden hose. I am sot sure I see the advantage/need here, but I'm sure you know something I haven't discovered or run into.

Good morning Bob -- I'm adding fresh water and black/gray water storage tanks to my TV and need a way to pump to the black/gray transport tank. I've got a 12v pump to transfer the potable water to the Excel. These tanks will be on opposite sides of the TV and will not be utilized during the same time to reduce any chance of cross-contamination.

I see. You two must be considering doing some serious boondocking.

The state parks we frequently visit for 2-3 weeks at a time do not have full hookups. Electric only with water and dump available. Nothing I dislike more than to have to hookup the Excel, disconnecting, etc. to make a dump or water run. Tried the blue totes and they're okay, just another bulky item to carry around. I've got space for two 40-50 gal tanks.

John,
My wife read this thread and she said she hopes you never have a wreck while transporting the full black tank. Just kidding. Have you tried coiling up your hoses and storing them in plastic buckets with lids. This is the way I carry my hoses. Works good for me.
Paul
