Needless to say emptying the tanks is probably the worst part of having a motorhome.
Has any one come up with a simpler / cleaner system?
What about these pumps that use a water hose?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I added a Sani Con system over 3 years ago. Nice to get rid of the 3 inch hose and leave everything attached. They don't make the unit anymore but the new one looks better. The intake is 3 inch and with the 1.5 inch hose , it will be fast. It seems that Thetford is changing their marketing so I'm having trouble actually seeing one. They want you to deal with their "Gold"dealers
I may switch to it and keep the old one as backup.

Please let me know how you like it. Maybe send a picture. I would also like to know that if you are at a hook up in an RV park for a few days does it just drain or do you need to turn on the pump.
I think it would be well worth the money if it makes the job easier.

The previous Saniconhad a "Bypass" so leaving the grey open allowed continuous drainage. (Not for black) On this one, I don't know. It should be quick.

New Sami Con Turbo installed. It replaced the Sani con and is 35 amp.( Requires new wiring) The hose is 1 1/2 inch vs 1. Grey water will bypass, but I wouldn't want to leave the black valve ope. Very fast. Grey was over 1/2 full.Took 35 seconds. I have a Cam Lock quick connect out the bottom so no need to pass the hose out the bottom. Moving the water filter gives lots of room for the hose.

I want to do this mod. and add a manual valve to the mix. We have rebuilt 6 GMC retro rigs for some reason 5 have all came with sewer pump mods installed. one rig has an optional exhaust system crap incinerator I would like to rework it for the caddy 500 rig we are building to keep. these rigs are fun but the tanks are only 30 gal mixed grey black
