Macerator Pictures Needed.

Last owner deleted the macerator I have a new one in the box but need the diagrams on how to plumb it. The New Macerator came with the hose, new end and pump box with a few exits.

We have a 2016 Aspire and I have asked Entegra without success they have noting to offer on file or to share.

Wondering if someone would be so kind to take a few pics of their wet bay along with wiring so I can order the components needed?

Macerator Pictures Needed.

8, 17, 11 - weak point design and you get this:

The rubber boot connector had to clamp on to the gate valve. There was no bite to hold it in place and then it sloped held with just one clamp and a half inch screw.

WDW's installation and pictures are very different than the situation you have encountered. Your macerator installs completely differently.

The drawing is right and shows most of the right install. There have been several threads up here on this forum in the past six months. They also have good pictures. Go to the search box and search on iRV2 (not the web) and enter ENTEGRA: macerator failure replacement and enter and see if that doesn't find them. If it doesn't and they should be in the first 4nor 5, then free associate better search terms.

I'll help in the morning if you have not found them.

Gary

I should point out that the drawing I provided is for the newer style, "modified" piping for the discharge hose arrangement, not the original, "hard-piped" version Entegra was providing during the 2016-2017 model years.
I acquired this assembly drawing of the newer version, as I intended to modify my system to this style of set-up.

Not a huge difference between the two, but the newer version should make life easier.

I'm curious though, if the PO deleted the macerator system, what did he replace it with?

If you start on the first page and read through each post you will know about as much as any of us know.. Near the last post Darrowman publishes a whole step by step.

Iím pointing to the line and hold up the small pipe that goes up and over the the Macerator door. Goes up about 2í up to the flexible Macerator line.

Sorry if the pics are twisted preview is showing them upside down and Iím not keen on how to fix this lol

Hi Oddvious,

Here are some photos of the macerator install on my '18 Anthem:

On my '18 Anthem, the cut 1 1/2" pipe that you're pointing to in your photo, is angled upward (~30 degrees) to the compartment in front of the wheel well that contains the macerator hose. Yours appears to be more horizontal.

It appears that you'll need a 1 1/2" flexible rubber connector to connect the macerator output to a 1 1/2" blade valve and then whatever connection is necessary to connect the blade valve to the PVC pipe you're pointing at in your picture.

Hope my photos are helpful. If you need anything else, let me know. I'm in the coach and can take more photos for you.

Take care,
Stu

P.S. I apologize for the dust, crud on the bay floor and the cobwebs. I don't go that far in there very often.

Huge help thanks so much.

So Looks like all of these holes are not used and theirs some sort of metal tray the plastic Macerator box sits in. Am I seeing this correctly?

Glad I could help.

I believe both of those are correct. I'd guess that Entegra Customer Service (Parts) can get you set up with the metal frame that holds the macerator "box". Plugging the unused "holes" is probably accomplished using locally available plumbing parts.

Here's the .pdf file that Entegra provides describing the replacement of the macerator: REPLACEMENT, THETFORD MACERATOR(3) (1).pdf

Good luck with your restoration.

Take care,
Stu

There is no plastic tray in my coach.... the macerator is "hung" in midair and only the basement of the wet bay is below.

And yes, you have to plug off two of the outlets that are not used. That has been described in some other threads. I think the factory glues them on but some other owners have used a rubber plug that is held in place by a hose clamp.
