Macerator, where at?

On my new to me 2017 Thor ACE 27.2, I was looking at the fuse labels at the converter under the bed and I see a 20 amp fuse for a macerator.
I had no idea that I had one. Where would it be located?

More than likely you don't have one and the fuse is mis-labelled. If you have one it will be located somewhere near the black and gray tank drains.

I pretty much thought so. I went back out after I posted and looked at possible areas that would have one but none to be found.

I looked closer at the fuse panel and I have another 20 amp fuse for heated holding tanks and I'm almost sure that I don't have tank heaters. "No switches on the panel to turn them on".

I think it's a generic fuse panel and somebody plugged fuses into it where they probably were empty slots before.

On my rig the macerator is in the wet bay and there is a switch labeled macerator on the control panel in the wet bay.

We have a 2018 ACE 27.2 it has no macerator. Have thought about adding a macerator toilet though.

If you have a macerator, your dump hose will be a 2” blue hose in the wet bay rather than the traditional “stinky slinky” hose on the driver’s side.

OK. I am going to show my ignorance at the same time that I try to provide some insight...
It seems to me that the term macerator might be used for two different use devices.
BTW - I have a 2019 ACE 30.3.
If does not have a macerator under the toilet. I first assumed that this was the only use.
When looking at the 'schematic' that THOR provides on line, it shows a macerator connected to the sink for the outdoor kitchen.
When purchasing this used unit, the tech showed us a switch to pump the water from the outdoor kitchen sink, since it is pretty much below the gray tank.
I would have called this a 'pump'. Maybe that is what macerator means?
Do you have an outdoor kitchen?

All the Macerator pumps that I've dealt with in the past were for waste. They have blades that chop "stuff" up.
I do not have an outdoor sink, wish that I did...
What you have is most likely a macerator pump.

Well, it's interesting you saw that about the macerator fuse but I don't see any directions as to where the fuse is in these blogs. But I would like to stay in case someone has found it.

Macerator

Do you have the outside kitchen? If so it is for that sink out there. It is under and behind the sink and can be seen if you take the tray out of the tilt out drawer under the sink. Switch is under the upper cabinet.
