Sewer bypass for Sanicon?
« on: September 02, 2014, 08:16:18 pm »
I seem to remember you can dump the old-fashioned way by bypassing the Sanicon but I sure don't see how without removing the Sanicon unit. Which we really don't want to do tomorrow unless required. Any tips? Thanks.

I thought the factory installed a conventional gravity feed Twist-&-Pull on every unit, located further underneath the rig.  It is set back a little farther, maybe out of sight on your rig..

Look at it from the hitch. It may be there and be upstream of the Sani-con (as best I know, it only became standard on 2012 & later units - I had the factory install one on my 2011 after I took delivery).
If you don't have one, you'll have to remove the Sani-Con pump to install a "Stinky-Slinky" hose (make sure the valves are shut before you do that).

Thanks for the replies. Our 2007 doesn't have the bypass so looks like we need to pull the unit out. Hopefully it won't be a full Robin Williams "RV" scene!

Be sure to take pictures, so if you have the RV movie, we can all see it. Good Luck

Are you sure that you are not getting electric to the pump? It you are not getting any, then you should not need to remove the pump to fix things. If you are getting electric, then you can try clearing the pump by removing the rubber nipple on the end, insert a flat head screw driver in the hole. Turn it back and forth to clear the impeller

Our 2010 2551 has the bypass facing the rear just left of the hitch bracket.  There is no fuse, the power for the sanicon goes through a 20 amp circuit breaker located under the passenger side bed to the right of the power distribution center, the circuit breaker should reset itself.  You will have to remove the bed platform to get to the circuit breaker, but with a volt meter you may find the problem if it is indeed a power problem.

Good luck and let us know how it goes.
