RE: ordered a Flojet 18555 MACERATOR and I have some questions

I am building a carport for my trailer, which also serves as a place for guests, and I want to be able to dump at home. Unfortunately my sewer cleanout is 125 feet from where my grey tank valve will be. Option 1 is to put a sewer dump at the end of the concrete pad. However the sewer would have to run 100 feet to the clean out and from my internet searching it seems like it will have to have a 25 inch drop in height to meet code/work. SO that is likely out, since my sewer clean out is at most 1 foot below ground. Option 2 is to use a FloJet or other macerator, and a garden hose to my sewer clean out. From many reviews it seems that going 125 feet and totally flat in a 3/4” hose should be fine. Any concerns that it would not work? I would really prefer a more permanent option. I’m doing a whole backyard project and it’s going to cost a lot of money so it sort of stinks that I’m going to be stuck running a garden hose across my new landscaping and pool area to dump poop. It’s just not very elegant. Plus I’ll have to do it manually rather than just leaving the trailer hooked up for guests, etc. Any thoughts or other ideas? Or is the macerator my best option and not that bad? You could bury a 1' PVC pipe from your pad to the cleanout and tie it into the line there. At the pad end install a garden hose adapter and use a short run of 3/4" or 1" commercial garden hose to connect from there to camper. That hose will be removeable and able to store it until needed. You will power the Macerator from camper battery. Mine pumps both tanks (100+ gal.) in 10/15 minutes.

RE: ordered a Flojet 18555 MACERATOR and I have some questions

I hard wired a number 10 copper strand wire with 30 AMP fuse from the front of my 40 MH battery bank to the dump bay at the back and installed a ground wire from the frame at that location. Both are connected to a plug that mates with the macerator wiring. I purchased a 100' and a 40' 3/4 commercial hose for different applications. I have used both together for a 140' run. Never had a problem pumping with any combination of runs and up hill works fine. I use the Flojet macerator and it easily connects or disconnects to allow the original drain hose to be used.

RE: Two aussies

This should help get you started in the correct direction. https://www.ncdot.gov/dmv/help/moving/Pages/new-residents.aspx NOTE: A valid license issued by a government agency from a U.S. state or another country is required to drive legally in North Carolina. North Carolina law enforcement authorities do not recognize international driver licenses. https://www.protectiveagency.com/services/auto-insurance-north-carolina/foreign-license-insurance/ Foreign drivers must have either a licensed issued by the state of North Carolina, or one issued by their home state in the U.S. International driver’s licenses are not honored in North Carolina. So, if someone is only visiting the area and not planning to stay for an extended period, they should look for other forms of transportation during their visit to North Carolina. In most cases, if you have an international driver’s license that is up-to-date, that license is valid for up to one year after the date you entered the U.S.

RE: Rear Camera Intercom

With mirrors and rear/side cameras I park ok. Trained drivers park 18 wheelers in the most difficult places without "Spotters."

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

There is an old saying that, "Some people would complain if you hung them with a new rope." :) Addictions come in many forms....even reading things that one does not like. The Thread title is about a tear down and rebuild...no mention of a RESTORATION. Great adventure...cliff hanger every day. Stay the course.

RE: How do you share camping expenses?

Some people put a price on their family and friends like everything else they own. My family and friends are priceless. Money is just a thing. The love of it is the source of all kinds of problems. The OP is conflicted with which she values the most.

RE: Motorhome side mirror replacement/repair

May be possible to get a chrome cover to snap over them. I have seen large metal MH chrome mirrors for $300-400 around RV surplus stores in my travels..

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

We have Nexus cards. To get one they do a background criminal check and you have to go in for an interview. Takes a few months. Normally all they do at the Nexus booth is ask you where you're going and/or if you have anything to declare and they wave you on. The Nexus lane is a LOT faster than the regular lanes and usually get through in minutes at the most. We cross the border a lot year round because we also have a mailbox in the US and having Nexus helps a lot for that too. Just wondering if any of the Nexus group ever go bad? Sounds like they would be the target to buy off to be a carrier for illegal drugs, etc.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

That thing washed up there during high tide. :) Hope you also had time to visit the Creation Museum. We enjoyed a visit from a Christian minister and wife Saturday who live there at Williamstown. We have enjoyed a couple visits to the museum over the years. A lot to see. A couple days are recommended to fully appreciate the museum and planetarium. We are currently parked about 1 1/2 hours east of the Ark, I-64. Be here for another 2 weeks.

RE: Remove 3 m from front of coach

I would rather paint the front than have than junk on my coach again.. wife and I removed it in a couple days labor... not bad, took our time. Mine was still under warranty but they refused to honor the warranty. Newmar quoted me $6,000 for the job. Rocks chips are easily repaired.

RE: Balancing Rear Tires?

My preference would be to have them trued and balanced for the ultimate quality ride. All tire have run-outs and out of balance problems. Nothing is perfect in its mold form.
