How effective are these advertised "macerators" that help assist with eliminating larger particles in RV holding tanks?


As far as I know, they work just fine. However, unless you are planning to camp off-the-grid and pump waste into a large holding tank mounted on a truck bed, it probably isn't necessary. You would probably not need a macerator if you intend to dispose of waste into a dump station or even into a "blue boy" that's on the ground. We know a lot of RV'ers and the only person I've heard of who uses one was pumping waste for a long distance into a home sewage system.
