Thor Quantum RQ29 outside kitchen drain

Hi all. I'm new here. I've seen a thread related to this issue, but mine is a bit different. I have a Thor Quantum RQ29 Class C. For the outside kitchen drain, I found the switch under the cabinet for the drain pump. I had water in the drain and hit the switch and nothing happened. I didn't hear a pump being activated. I am plugged into 120, and the disconnect is off.

I just got the RV a few weeks ago and the dealer is sending me a new inverter and relay, for me to install. I am very handy so there should not be a problem. could the bad inverter be why the outside kitchen drain is not draining? I have 2 good house batteries also.

Your ideas would be appreciated.

R.J.

Why is the disconnect off? Your batteries won't charge when on SP if your disconnect is OFF.

As for the sink macerator - it's a 12 volt unit. So time to get the voltmeter out and test for 12 VDC at the switch:

If 12 VDC present - check the wire connections to the pump - otherwise, bad pump.

If no 12 VDC present - trace back to the source. Maybe an inline fuse if you're lucky (I'm assuming you've checked the fuses in the Power Center?).

I meant that my disconnect is on, and not turned off. I will start with the fuses. Thanks.
