Knew it would happen and it did!

Macerator hose leaked. No valve to block in macerator and use bypass hose! Luckily it was only a pin hole and I could press the hose together and dump the tank. If it would have been a burst I would have been ticked off even more. Called Thetford and got another hose. Went to the hardware and bought a 1.5 close nipple and a valve. Problem solved. I guess Jayco doesn't have an "engineer" on their sewer systems.

It is not like the engineer is knowing what he is doing, it is the cost cutting features in the RV industry. If you want it done right you have to do it yourself.

Ok, here's the fix for the busted Sani-Con Macerator hose. 1 1/2" threaded valve, close nipple and an empty tank! Consider it cause it's gonna happen.

Need some PVC parts help...

Hi Buddy,

This has been very high on my to-do list and finally got to it today. Have a couple of questions concerning your PVC valve config:

1. As you state in your post, it is a 1.5 inch threaded Schedule 40 valve. It looks like you are using the existing gray threaded fitting on the hose side of your valve. Correct?

2. What adapter are you using on the side of the valve that connects to the TurboCon box? I can't tell from the photo.

Once I get this installed, I'm also going to order a spare TurboCon hose.

Thanks for your help on this!

I too had this issue and did what you did, but I took one additional step. I put a 90 degree elbow in so that the pressure is taken off the hose. Now it drops straight down to the outside outlet in the floor. My leak was at the bend or about 2 inches from the end. I then shortened the old hose and went to a pool/spa shop for the purchase of a new end. I now have a backup hose in case the new one develops a leak while I am out on the road.

I did not have enough clearance to thread the ball valve on so I had to go with two slip on nipples and a short section of reinforced clear hose. A bit longer than desired, but works well to isolate the macerator hose from the junction box. Should be standard fitment from the factory.

Excellent idea on the elbow.

Jayco must have learned from their mistakes. On my 2018 Pinnacle with the Macerator option they installed a blade valve before the pump so it can be isolated if need be, and still able to use a standard 3" hose to dump the tanks.
(I will get some pictures posted in a day or two)

Great thread. It has bothered me that there was no way to isolate the flex hose. The ball valve and the elbow are excellent ideas. I would also like to add a short section of clear hose so I can see when the discharge is flowing clean.
