Adding a Flojet macerator?

We have 2021 Tiffin RED 38KA. We would like to add a Flojet macerator in addition to the 3in. regular dump system. I think there is a splitter that would connect to the dump outlet in the wet bay which would allow us to keep the macerator connected to one side of the outlet connection and then when set up for extended stays connect the 3in hose to the other side of the splitter. We're looking for suggestions and advice. Thanks,
RJ

I did that, primarily for when we have a guest stay in the MH at the house. I tried the macerator at a camp site, and it was a pain, IMO. Had to leave the valves closed, and when dumping, had to stay there with it until it was done, not to mention carrying another hose with you, and the macerator as well. It now stays in the garage.

I've been using the SaniCon macerator for 17 years and love it. Many poo poo them either because they don't have one, or don't use it properly. The newest SaniCon turbo can dump your tanks faster than a 3" hose. The SaniCon units have a bypass built in. You leave the unit permanently attached and operate your drains, just like a 3" hose. When arriving at the campground, or for a long term stay, simply open the grey tank. The grey water will drain as it normally would. When you're ready to dump your black, open the black tank and turn on the SaniCon. It's just like a garbage disposal.

The best part of the SaniCon, you never have to remove the hose or even clean it. Once you're done dumping and ready to go, you just cap the end of the hose with the provided cap and stuff the hose into the wet bay. No doing a dance with a long 3" hose, trying to flush it, drain it and store it.

If you're dry camping and filling your grey tank faster than the black tank, simply open both the grey and black tanks and let them equalize. If you're dumping and don't have time to flush the tank, or maybe there is a long line of people waiting, empty the black tank, open the grey tank and let it fill the black, then dump the black which has now been flooded with soapy water.

DIY macerator setup. Use it to dump at home to a sewer outlet about 150' dustant, when friends visit, moochdocking, etc.

I agree, I have been using a SaniCon for years that I installed. There is one already on the half bath due to the tank location. If you permanently install it you still want to carry your back up stinky slinky, just in case it malfunctions. I will be replacing it with the Sanicon Turbo due to the impeller breaking. (grandkids)
The other issue is you should not be leaving your dump valves open except when dumping anyway. Yes you can get away with leaving the grey tank one open but it is still best to leave them closed. I have seen what happens to an RV when a bunch of people dump at the same time and due to how the park is laid out and you just happen to be at the lower end of the pipes and left your vale open and come home to an RV full of Sh1111T.
Not pretty and really really stinky to say the least. But they had no one to blame except themselves.
