I waffled back and forth on this option when I placed my order. On paper it sounded like a good idea.
My parents have had several nice motorhomes in the last few years and I know on one of them my mom had a macerator system so I talked to her. Overall they like the system but on their newest order they went back to a conventional dump tube.
At the end of the day your using a blender/pump to chop everything up and push it through a garden hose. When (key word here) it plugs up you have no choice but to dissemble the system and clean out the offending debris to get things flowing again. While she did say it wasn't particularly finicky there were things like laundry lint, dog hair, and whatever else might make it into the system that caused predictable problems occasionally.
Since this duty is normally (always ) my moms in her rig and mine in ours and it is something that we are doing after all the other chores are done and getting ready to leave the site. I decided the last thing I would want to be doing is unclogging a macerator pump. Even is it's only 3% of the time that means at least once each year I get the unexpected treat.
The standard dump tube, while still not pleasant is very predictable and for the most part works everytime.
Anyway, those were my thoughts on the macerator system and why I didn't include it on my order.
