Mascerator pumps about 10gpm, similar to a city hookup,  reduce it with a valve and stand by the off switch. I'd rather pump grey water, than herd turds....

Sounds like you are all dialed in!

Mike, I have to thank you again for that you tuber. Yes we have 3.5 years and 42k miles with this unit, and this norcold has never worked properly from day one. We are off griders, so use it on LP most of the time. I will check out the AC. I have a feeling this is a higher than normal( to us) ambient temp, poor install( horrible chimney, poor placement of fan)  from PC, type problem.  Always check out the simple stuff first,,,, right, like mud!

I agree, you do not want to mix black into the grey tank, ever.

The problem that most have is not enough grey capacity. Gravity mixing, is a process that has too many unknown variables,
I don't ever want to experience toilet paper, sewer smells, or anything else in my shower pan!

For the price of a cheap hose you can connect to your mascerator and pump directly into your toilet, or get creative and make up a small hose, with screens, and pump directly into the black flush valve on your black tank.

If you have a mascerator pump, of any brand or design, and back flush valves to both grey and black tanks, there is no reason, with proper screens, that you can't pump any tank to any other tank or the dump station. Unless I'm missing something,  its a better controlled situation, gravity mixing with fluids can turn into a guessing game.

With our toilet moved to the outside wall on our 2350, we have approx 20 black, 30 grey, by bucket tests, the only thing you really need to know.

I thought I should add, I replaced the thermistor inside the refer( not what I refer to it most days) too....

Thanks Mike for your detailed response. After I posted I went out and restarted it on LP, its about 90 degrees outside. I let it stand for about four hours then went out to see what was going on.

 The fan was on, I put a instant thermometer on the sensor/ thermostat switch, it was 112degrees. Inside refer temp was still crazy hot at freezer 53 deg, refer 65(these are off a remote thermometer). I turned on my two added external fans, that are high in the compartment, within a few minutes the original factory fan shut down.

I have to admit, I don't really know if the factory fan has ever continued working in the past after the external fans come on, maybe someone else could chime in on their experience?

I also have to wonder why the factory fan could not be wired to a on/off switch, like my added fans, and forget the thermostat switch, any thoughts here?

Really getting tired of this garbage.

We have a side vented Norcold, with factory installed single fan half way up. The fan works, but the thermostatic switch appears to not come on, or comes on at a temp that I believe is too hot. I changed out switches, one worked for awhile,another not at all. Maybe I got bad switches? Does anyone know at what temp the fan should come on?

We've been off to the coast for a few days, so I am slow to return to this topic. Thanks to everyone for your replies.   We do understand the mechanism and I should have mentioned it was very difficult to get the cover off to begin with; that was our first clue. I think the center pole with the groove in it is not long enough for the mechanism from the cover to engage. I even taped my phone with a video going, and a few head lamps inside it to see what on earth was going on. The resulting movie was extremely dim (probably because the phone's camera was adjusted for full sunlight) , but you could tell that the latching mechanism on the cover never quite reached far enough to latch. I'm thinking that it needs to stick out about 3/4 of an inch more than it currently does. The distance can probably be figured out by by putting a few spacers where the whole thing attaches to the RV. We'll see. At any rate, one needs to figure out the exact distance that is needed before it can have any permanent fix. I can see this is a great concept, but I'm convinced ours is defective. :-( --Thanks again everyone. Allyson

We are having great difficulties attaching the spare tire cover now that it has been removed. The latch just doesn't seem to go into the groove. Any pointers on this? It is so frustrating!!
