I generally have to lift the drain hose to empty. At some point I fear this will have disastrous

Any suggestions appreciated!

Thanks in advance,


RV on!
How much difference in height?
I have not encountered that problem yet. Do you put pads under your jacks?

Jacks down on auto, no jack pads on level driveway gives me 10.5 inches. What height did you need it to be?

My sewer pipe scraped all the time, too. Every time I entered or left my driveway I could hear it grinding against the cement. Didn't matter what angle I had the coach at, it still hit the ground. The Sani-Con solved that problem immediately. Good luck, Barbara.

Ive looked at my drain pipes in the compartment and there is little pipe space to cut out the drain and glue a male connector inside the panel to feed the macerator. . Who actually did the pluming for you? My fittings are so tightly glued (not enuf str8t pipe) there's no space to

Simply not enough room to cut the base of the black water and brown water union and add a right angle male twist on inside the compartment. Unless you were able to unbolt the t pull valves on the left and right and turn them facing outward, but unfortunately they are not square.
