Macerator hose replaement

I've carried this spare Thetford Sani-Con hose for a few years as I've read that the hose tended to get pin holes in it after some time:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I replaced mine today because of two pin holes that developed and rapidly increased in size under the pressure of the macerator pump. I figured I'd go ahead and get another one to replace the spare, but they no longer appear to be available.

Does anyone have a current source for this part, or has anyone found a better/more durable replacement? It seems like most any hose with an 1 1/2" ID would work. These are nice, though, because they collapse a bit and are very easy to store.

Thanks!
JT

Noticed the same issue. Plan to install a gate valve to close off the hose and resort to the old fashion 3" hose drain.

Nothing like pressurized sewage when you spring a leak! Been there done that.

Bummer to hear they're not in stock currently. I carry a spare also for that reason (and as an extension sometimes). Be interested to see if anybody else finds them. Otherwise I agree any 1-1/2" house should be able to be made to work with the barb fittings. I know Shultz01 went so far as to change his out for the cam style clamp pool hose fittings.

Macerator hose replaement

97521 is the part number an XL. So, I assume a DX3 would be the same. It is also out of stock everywhere, including at Thetford.

mookie...97521 is the part number in your Amazon link as well. Let us know if you find one. I’ve been trying to find one for 2 months.

I went to the web site and it says that none of them are in production any more. I might have to get an extra if I can find to avoid a problem in the future.

Seems they are out of stock everywhere. However, Dynamax is still installing the Sani-Con system in the new units and those units have this hose. So, Thetford is still getting some produced. Maybe Dynamax parts can source them for us?

I'll ask. This can't possibly be true. We are still getting the Thetford made for us today. Maybe due to Covid they don't have spare parts to sell (I know some companies have tried to get caught up on OEM's before they start building for after market again).

I will get the real scoop.

PS, I went to that link and it now shows this... (just as I thought)

**NOTE the estimated delivery date above. Yes January 2021 as Thetford has a major supply chain issue. This is for new orders, if you have an existing order it will be fulfilled on or near your original date**

Macerator hose replaement

Yep, I saw that message, too. I bet I have been on 10 different websites looking for this hose. Every one of them shows out of stock. Most with no expected delivery dates.
Hopefully, you’ll find a stash somewhere!

Welcome to our world right now.

Just insert various product names with the same message, rinse, repeat.

Has anyone looked on the McMaster - Carr site to see if they carry an equivalent or an adaptor to an equivalent?

I got a Thetford replacement hose on Amazon, hose # 70424 this past March. I did notice that it was about 4 feet shorter than the original hose.

You'll also notice if you go to use it that its about a half inch smaller in diameter. That's the hose for their smaller models. We need the 97521 for our model.

Just scored a 97521 on Amazon! I had it on my saved list and just went in to look at something else and it surprisingly showed as available. Only one available, so I grabbed it. I feel like Christmas morning after trying to find this thing for so long!
