We have a 3rd setup, this clean hands macerator pump setup which is not common to the industry. It does make blending and draining extremely clean and easy.



Ron,
Did the macerator pump come with your unit?
It was an option back in 2007, but is standard equipment today. But you can special order a PC with only the conventional sewer method if you must have it so, and save a little money as well.

PCs are setup for both ways, with the macerator and gravity drain like most others. PC owners use the gravity setup when staying in places for extended periods for continuous draining. Snow birds with a tow vehicle like the continuous method.

We have had great success using the Geo Method to keep our tanks fresh and our indicators accurate. Look it up online>

My gray and black tanks are only 20 gallons on my 25' C, I don't know why they are so small so I only use FHU sites.

When I had trailer I carried tote in bed of pickup. When I got the C I just drive the motorhome to dump station if I need to empty tank.

Like others I tend to fill gray faster than the black. I too dump extra liquids down the toilet (rather than a sink) if convenient.

Hey there fellow RVers,
This is the OP... We decided on the Jayco Seneca, so we have larger tanks and should be capable of a couple nights on the tanks with good conservation techniques.

Thanks for all the great feedback.

Good move. Still consider the Geo Method to keep tanks working well and level indicators accurate. It works for us!

I was in a private park for about 3 years that had water and elect but I was about 100' past the last sewer hookup. I bought a twist on macerator pump and a garden hose to the last hookup. The person with the last hookup was only there 2 times in my entire stay and we were there 3-4 days a week year round so it wasn't an issue. Worked great for 4 years probably every 2 weeks still have it packed it it's box. The grey we ran a hose into the woods and left it open all the time
