Default 2018 Carado Banff macerating toilet

Hello all,

I have 11,000 mi on my Carado Banff and am having a problem with my macerating toilet. I have a red button on the drivers side door jamb that you push to run the macerating toilet. I used it a few times and now it does nothing. No noise , no nothing. I checked all the fuses. One other thing that is happening is when pushing the lever on the toilet nothing is happening. No water flushing. Is it because the black tank is full? I hook the 3" hose to black tank outlet, pull the lever and nothing comes out. I thought the Banff was a 12 volt macerating toilet with a gravity dump. Any idea what is going on?

Thanks

Symptoms of no drain black tank equals poop pile in tank blocking drain. Try Geo Method, water flush up the black tank drain, etc. you’ll need to use a multimeter to see why your toilet does not operate. Yes it is possible that a safety has engaged.

Default Inverter On?

Do you have your inverter on? This is required.

The symptoms sound like neither the macerator nor the water pump are working. Do you have electricity for lights and water pressure in the faucets? On my roadtrek the macerator works off he coach batteries so the inverter does not need to be on, but the Hymer Carado's may be different. It may also be that your batteries are dead and the inverter works off the batteries too.

Why would an inverter have to be own if the macerater is a 12V system?

We also have a macerator pump and we don't need to have the inverter turned on..... pump is a 12 volt.....

So, maybe it's an electrical fault or faulty pump?
