I have a Flojet Portable RV Waste Pump w/Macerator that I want to use to pump the gray and black water holding tanks into the cleanout pipe. The most accessable point to wire the pump into thr RV wiring is at the light in the storage compartment below the bedroom on the driver's side. There are 4 wires coming from the bedroom lights to the light in the storage compartment.
Sooo...will someone please help me obtain schmatic wiring diagrams for 2010 Forester or educate me as to how I wire the pump?
Sorry to say but wiring diagrams for most motorhomes are few and far between. Your best bet is to call FR directly and inquire but don't be surprised if they say they don't have them.
Depending on how much amperage the pump draws I would be inclined to just run some new wires directly from your batteries to the compartment and wire in a nice switched plug-in for your pump. I am considering doing the same thing with a surplus water pump so that I can transfer grey water to the black tank via the black tank flush system. Water pumps can draw upwards of 14 amps so I am not certain a typical lighting circuit will be fused to handle them.
