Smile Easier Dumping

Has anyone had experience or seen a recirculating macerator pump permanently installed in an RV? The tank configuration on my Jayco Eagle has a nasty tendency to clog as waste accumulates. Seems it would be logical to install a macerator to recirculate the contents of the tank making a clean compete dump possible every time. Thoughts?

Try the Happy Camper product, it works very well. Read through the reviews on Amazon.

Problem is design flaw

This is the first I have heard of that treatment and I will give it a try.
The problem I grapple with is the design of the tank itself. It has a step inside that forms a shelf. The flushing action is not robust enough to clean that area at all. I have to constantly be aware of the status of the holding tank eg. how often was it used, how much liquid is present, and should I dump now or later to give it time to break things up. Watching the Youtube using the clear tank it's obvious no amount of driving or movement will result in waste breakdown. So the internal macerator seems to be one approach to solving the problem.
