After 35 + years of RV'ing, IMHO a macerator is way more work than they are worth. One big exception might be if you have to go a long ways or uphill to the dump pipe. They are so slow that you leave a lot of "stuff" in the bottom of the tank unless you take the time to flush it several times. Further, if you dry camp and use the public tank dump on a Sunday afternoon, you will have a line up of very unhappy folks who just want to get home and not wait for you to pump stuff out. And finally, I have never had to perform any maintenance on my 3 " dump hose while a macerator will eventually plug up or seize up no matter how careful you are.
In most states and counties their is a requirement for a "positive fitting connection between the hose and the sewer pipe". This is usually accomplished by have a threaded female connector on the sewer pipe that you can screw you sewer hose adapter into. Sometimes thier is just a tight friction connection that will also meet the standards. What IS NOT legal is to just have the elbow hanging down into the sewer pipe, which can easily jump out when you open the dump valve.
Well, I hardly ever make the effort to let people know of REALLY POOR PARKS. But this one begs the exception of my rule "not to bother"
In 35 years of RV'ing this is one of the 3 worst parks we have ever had the misforton of staying in.
1. Illegal and non-working sewer hook ups
2. Sewer smell 24/7
3. Kids (and some adults) waling through site; 24/7
4. Rusty elect. hook ups, falling over in some cases, poor contacts
5. VERY narrow sites, no room for 4 slide unit.
6. Dirt every where, NO landscaping at all, no gravel, just dirt
7. 10:00 PM quite time NEVER enforced. Drunk & Noisy is the rule,
1. Pool nice & Clean, as were the restrooms
2. Staff tried to be helpfull, but were untrained and un-motivated
3 Location 10 minutes to the beach/boardwalk
AVOID AT ALL COSTS
