Did you determine what the failure mode was with the macerator? In my case one of the short studs that held things together broke off in the housing. I am guessing that this happened due to water freezing inside the housing.

It was leaking between the seal and the electrical housing. A kit could have repaired it, but the cost wasn't that much less than just replacing the entire pump and it was a lot easier that disassembling it which requires a special tool I did not have. Airstream told me it would be replace under warranty if I could prove it wasn't a leak caused by freezing-which of course I could not. Their quick answer made me think it hadn't been the first time the question had been made to customer support leading me to believe this is a common issue to fail.
