Dump stations with curbs can be a real hassle as the Roadtrek exit is so close to the ground. That is the biggest issue we hear about, after the hassle of getting all open, dropped, etc while on your knees.

Apparently, Sani-Con has been bought by Thetford.

How do you expect to be able to use this??

My guess is that there was misunderstanding.

Yes, the 'pump motor' may be the same, but the link is for one that attaches to End of a 3 inch dump hose, not the dump hose slipping onto the pump.

Compare the one you ordered to the link I posted earlier. The one I posted earlier you can slip the dump hose around.

Again, I don't think that Sani-con has a mascerator that will work today. The link we both posted was Never Sani-con's, rather another vendor that just put together a package that included a Sani-con pump that no longer exists.

But maybe I'm all wrong, and you'll figure it out.

Please keep use posted.

Bud

My problem is that the previous owner ran over something and tore the drain lines off. The dealer really did a lousy job "fixing" the damage so I figured I might just as well bite the bullet and do it over correctly.

Well, I'll know Wednesday, because that's when I plan to install it. For the investment I have made, I will find a way to make it work!

installation update - If you look at the installation instructions posted previously this will all make more sense. The pump, as shipped, has a switch box mounted to the side of the motor and an extra hose for bypassing the pump with gray water in case you are hooked up to a station at your site. If you do not remover these, the pump will not slip inside the crossover pipe. Also, the end of the pipe is double thick, so I had to get creative with a utility saw to make the opening large enough for the pump. The bypass elbow on my unit was cracked, but since I don't want to use the bypass mode, I removed the elbow and plugged the end at the pump with a 1/4 pipe plug. That allowed the pump to slip up into the 4 inch crossover pipe, after modifying the pipe based on the instructions. I drilled the hole in the storage compartment and ran the 1 1/2 inch drain hose into it. I then fabricated a strap to support the pump/crossover pipe. Tomorrow I will install the electrical wiring for it. So far, I'm into it about 4 hours and and am not unhappy yet.

Bud - the unit I bought was put together by Thetford. I called their support line today about ht broken elbow. It's warranted for a year, but since I removed it i won't file a claim. The 3 inch hose connects to the pump with a standard twist connector, so that was no problem.
