Ron,
I must compliment you on a well-written and complete summary of the modifications you made and the way you laid out the photos is marvelous.
Well done.

Thanks to all the ideas.  I think there was air in the system and it continued to fill.  I will push the pedal after the pump is turned off.  With regard to the Hilton Head Comment , the Heritage is not so loved if you do not have a business there.We would normally leave about time for the Heritage and not return until fall.  We are on lot 38 in the RV resort as you enter the Island.  Now you have someplace to stop.

Dave:

I have had a small amount of water come out the overflow while driving, but only once that I am aware of.

Tom Hanlon has posted in the past that when this occurs he uses a small section of pipe or hose over the overflow and blows into it, clearing the line.

I had a coach once that would siphon i/2 tank out after I filled it. The overflow drain did not have a loop in it and that caused a siphon effect. Once a loop it stopped.

After seeing one of our fellow PC owners refrigerator door break and then reading about many more online we decided to purchase the Door Hinge Retrofit Kit from Norcold.  I called Norcold to confirm that part number 634166 would fit our refrigerator which is a N621.

We ordered it from amazon, it looks like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Norcold-634166-RV-Refrigerator-Door-Hinge-Kit-/321253813258 and installed it today.  It was a five minute job and it looks to really have reinforced the lower hinge.  The large metal part actually slides onto the frame door and reinforces the lower hinge very well.

Never, in my wildest dreams--well, maybe only there--could I attempt to do something like that.
Carol, read through my added Tips & Tricks at the bottom of my initial post.  If you can use these tools with any degree of control, you can modify the new pump and then hand it to any handyman for the installation.  You only need to make sure your old pump looks like my old pump.

Use this to cut off the long inlet tube.


Use this afterward to make smooth clean edges


Use this to drill the hole at the end of the motor


Use one of these to seal the hole you just drillled


It's that easy.

Never, in my wildest dreams--well, maybe only there--could I attempt to do something like that.  But it sure does help to expand my understanding of one more mechanical mystery in my motor home!  Thanks for sharing  all that, Ron.

I read somewhere that when you fill it to the point that it flows out of that other fill spot, that it can create a siphoning situation and the water can continue to get sucked out for awhile, especially when moving.

You mentioned you might use the stand that came with the Seaflow to mount the pump rather than the original strap.  I'd be interested in know how it turns out if you do.  That has been on my to-do list for a while (reducing the macerator noise).
Hi Mike, I added the Tips and Tricks comments.  Read through that.  I don't recommend using the stand.

I too would like to reduce macerator pump noise of which a new pump all by itself will help a lot.  I am planning on mounting and running the pump temporarily without the motor attached to the rig and see what is learned.  Then install a good strap and include a large soft rubber pad in between pump & strap and then compare.  I suspect the majority of macerator pump noise is transmitted through the waste plumbing and not the mounting strap, but maybe I will be surprised.

I will report my findings.

Mike,

You're right our tank is also on the passenger side of the coach. I don't mind the overflow being on the opposite side but when we fill our tank the water continues to come out of the overflow long after the tank has been filled.
Do you experience the same thing? We have had other Motorhomes and I never experienced and overflow leaking water for several miles after it's filled.
It's possible that after the water tank is full it fills the reservoir on the passenger side to the inlet long before it can get to the side I'm filling..........make sense?

Thank you,
Dave
