Scott; No clogs because it is a Garbage disposal 3/4 hrp Stainless steel with a SS impeller and ball bearing bearing. it will chew it up before it gets to the hose. The fitting on top I got at CW and it is clear so you could see before it was stopped up if it ever did happen. I can also see when it is done. I got one with an anti siphon that you can hook a water hose to and shoot water back inside to finish clean the tank and hose etc.

In the top of the tank is also a female 3 inch fitting with a screw in cap I can run a water snake in for another clean. They can over heat but it will throw the reset if that happen. I just hit it with some cold water and start it again. It take about 7 minutes to dump 50 Gallons.

Dave,

Nice creative engineering!

So is that just a residential style garbage disposal?
Any problems running it continually for 7 minutes? Besides the heat.
How long have you been running that kind of setup? Curious what the duty cycle on a motor like that is, and how long it would last in this enhanced mode of operation Smiley

That sucks Scott,
This subject makes me think of one time I got dumped on and everything was in good shape. I have a 250gal tank and we were on an extra long trip with my inlaws. When I went to drain the tank, I opened the valve and the slinky must have doubled in size, then all the sudden the hose popped out of the dump station and started to do a snake dance. This was at a gas station in a large city with people in line behind me. I like to think of myself as a Christian too, But I was not as good as you. All I could say was $$$$!t (no pun intended) I knew that I needed to shut the valve off, but I was doing the snake dance too. Needless to say, there were turds all over the parking lot and I really looked like a dummy trying to hose them all back down the drain. Boy did I need a shower when I was done, my mother inlaw laughed for about 400 miles.

Scott

I have never hooked up a three inch hose to my tank.  This is what I use and the ONLY way I have ever emptied my tanks.

http://www.amazon.com/Sewer-Solution/dp/B000Z9G2D0

I don't remember where I got mine but it was less than 100 dollars and has never plugged or been a problem dumping. I was told that I would want a three inch hose and I bought one -- still have it -- never been used --- not the connectors or the hose just something to move around in the bays.

Whatever dump method you use, it is subject to failure as are most other things.  There is nothing stopping you from getting a good dump hose, changing it out when it is worn and using hose clamps even if the manufacturer says that they are not necessary.  I would guess that these dump hoses are used billions of times every year without problems.

Have a new Maceerator (Never used), do have great sewer hose (a more rigid flex hose that can be slid back into the storage tube) & fitings, never an issue with leaks, so guess I do not understand the big problem here ?
Maybe trying to use the crap from Camping World ?
Been watching the movie too much,  RV ?

Cliff, showers are cheaper maybe, but really, have you ever had your own poo on you? I can assure you your not thinking about how much it costs, you're just thinking "how long before I can install a better system" lol.  You know I value your opinion highly so I'm going to search for "poly" sewer hose right now. You're prob lucky enough to have electric dump valves Smiley

This is a very funny thread!

We had our Slinky hose come off once in our 32-foot fifth wheel. Not fun at all.

Now friends: We have one more reason to consider an outside shower head installation, (probably mounted in a bay) besides rinsing people off before getting in the coach when you are at the beach:

I had my sewer hose come off the fitting once, but the spillage was very minor.  I just used a really good cable tie with metal lock to cinch it on.

I use a Sewer Solution at home to dump my tank to the sewer clean out in my yard.  It works pretty good, but it requires a water connection and takes a few minutes to hook up.  One of the guys was flushing hand wipe type things down the toilet and those clog the sewer solution.  It wouldn't work as well if you have a full time sewer connection and want to let the gray water drain all the time.  I'm not sure how the flexible tubing would handle UV exposure.  The Sewer Solution is more for emptying tanks and not full time use.

Just do what the guys in the entertainers do.  They have a no #2 rule in the bus.  If you do that then all you have is liquid.  Get an electric valve and cut a hole in the floor of the bay so it will dump through the floor and now you can empty your tanks remotely.  And if you want to be like The Dave Matthews band just dump the tanks while going over bridge grates...just watch for tour boats.

This thread is funny only because it brings up our past learning experiences. LOL. I spent the winter in a 5th wheel in Montana once. The temperature was well below -20 degrees F. I had straw bales around the trailer and had an opening in the bales to allow the dogs/puppies in out of the weather. One day my wife started to complain about the drain being plugged. She tried the usual methods for unplugging the drain without success. When I got home it wasn’t long before I tracked the problem down. The two playful dogs had knocked the hose off the board that I had it taped to. That allowed the hose to have a trap in it.Then it froze. What happened next probably took several days to accrue. The holding tank and plumbing proceeded to fill up.  (Don’t try this at home I was young at the time) I now was faced with very cold temperatures and a 30 gallon block of ice plugging my gray water system. I rounded up a diesel space heater and spent most of the night getting the block of ice thawed enough to allow water through. With the straw bales around this was very dangerous. My wife was not at home at the time. This is when I found out that trailer plumbing is very much different than normal household plumbing. I spent the next day finding and replacing the broken PVC pipe.
