With environmental laws, should I just remove the macerator or bypass it?

I will pick up a copy of Peggie's book. What's the title of it?
See the link in my signature here. The title is a bit misleading (my publisher's idea...he thought more people would buy a book that promises to get rid of odors than one that explains how marine toilets work), but it's really a comprehensive "marine toilets and holding tanks 101" manual that also includes all the sources of odor on a boat and how to eliminate them. And I'm always glad to answer any questions it doesn't.

I think it's a screen capture that was zoomed before the capture. Not sure how to do that on my mobile.

I will be back to ask more questions about my cockpit control panel.
Good timing. I am deep into my wiring upgrade which includes deciphering how my panel is wired and why. Things like there is no ammeter but the 10awg wire from the alternator still ran to the panel and connected to the red wire. Then charging current went back to starter post via the red wire. The heavy current fried the butt connectors used to replace the trailer plugs.

I have a couple of threads on my projects/upgrades.
Have fun.
