    There are several. One is the Sewer Solution which is water powered. A lot of people have good luck with this, but mine jammed on me the first time I tried and I've never dared try it again. There are a couple of temporary 12v motor ones; I have one of these and it works great. There is also at least one built in system, but I don't have any experiance with it

    I see this feature on some MH standard equipment.
    What is the reason for and is needed or just added to make longer lists.

    The advantages are 1) no 3" 'slinky' hose, it uses a 1" or 3/4" 'garden' style hose. 2) it can pump the sewage a long distance or even uphill. The disadvantages are that it requires either water or power, and tends to be slower than a standard dump. So no, it is not necessary, but sure comes in handy sometimes.
