I think I tried it one time just to see if the line’s clear. Then I said oh no this is too messy!

Tried it twice and then it started stinking all the time even after repeated flushing. I didnt like how you could not see if the water was clear when flushing the black tanks......so I removed it and have a ton more room in my wet bay. Never liked the idea of sewage under pressure.

I use the Macerator 100% of the time. I believe it to be much easier to handle then the slinky and less messy. I have a hydraulic hose cover on my line to prevent wear on the hose and protection against any leaks. In addition I have added a 90 degree elbow so that the line has a straight shot down through the wet bay opening. That being said I carry a slinky system as a backup to any problems I might have with the macerator.(never have had to use it)

Never used it. Granted we never have had one in the first place.

I was taught in the old school ways that Sh%$ always rolls downhill. It does that naturally and does not ever need to be helped (pressurized).

Our reality: We have had a couple of accidents when we have been dumping our black tanks over the past 30 years. All of them were a malfunction of assembly, execution or other reasons that the end of the sewer hose did not stay securely connected to the sewer connection at the dump site. Looking back at those unfortunate events, the effort we spent to clean up after our misfortune and the humiliation we caused ourselves - I shudder to think what that mess would have been if the end of that hose was 1.5 inches and under pressure.

I chose to leave gravity and the forces of evil to other opportunities... NOT with the Sewer line.
