I haven't used it yet, but I will here in about a week or so. I bought this because I had to park at a campsite recently and the drain was uphill. Complete nightmare! Took so long for me to drain it and I had to maneuver the hose with contents inside to try to get the hose to drain. That's when I decided not to have this problem again. I can't control the drain, but I can control how I get it to it.

Correct, I have a 1" PVC line that runs from my RV port to my septic system. O my intention is to install a Sani-con and use that to macerate and pump the waste to the septic system.

--Stows neater and easier and cleaner.

Yep, it is going into my new "camper" soon. There are a few models so read the functionality of each before getting one if your thinking this route.
Regarding the last feature, was that accomplished by pumping into the toilet after routing the hose through a window or something similar? That is a feature I had not thought of.

Looking forward to some feedback on it... Only thing I was concerned about was the 15 minute continuous usage. See this website and the quote from about 3/4 of the way down the page in the "Pump Precautions" section.

RV Sani-Con: Installation Information for our RV Parts and Accessories

"The dc motor is suitable only for intermittent duty; do not run the pump for more than 15 minutes continuously"

If we have 44 gallons of black and 44 gallons of grey in Legacy, that should equate to 88 gallons and approximately 9 minutes of run time assuming completely full tanks and the "up to" 10 gal/min.

Aeroshots, can you comment on this, have you ever had any issues with the duty cycle of the pump? Have you run it over 15 min? What's the longest run you've done? The highest elevation change?

O - no, nothing like that. Assuming gray and black tanks are close to level with each other (past campers were ) the head pressure from full gray tank will provide flow into less full black tank.
1. Open gray valve
2. Open black valve
3. Listen for fluid flow
4. When flow stops, close black then gray valves.
The hoses stay connected with the permanent mounted system.

Never any duty cycle issue. I've run it for a good 15 minutes several times. 3 feet elevation change as a guess.
Keep in mind that the head pressure from each tank will be helpful to the motor. I pulled it out of the last camper a year ago, but as I can remember it has a bypass of sorts that let's the gray water flow without using the pump.

just got my Magne Shade in the mail. Thanks for the measurements that you gave them. Looking to do the fitting and install tomorrow.
