I have made do with a O ring but it still is a bad idea. We never use the stopper so I am going to put a screen there and file the plug away in a cubby hole. Useless squared.

I have the same problem.
I m agree with you this is a not good design to use.So try another best one.

My drain is the same way, and Jayco didn't even include the stopper.

The screen mentioned by tnchuck100 works well; it just sits inside the drain, and can be easily removed (and cleaned of all the debris it traps).

I saw this last year and didn't understand it then. Bought a 2011 22 FB used and my sink has an insert in the hole (I guess, since it's on the storage lot right now) so that if I rotate the stopper it rests on the insert and stays up. Seems bizarre that they would change this for 2012...probably saved 25 cents toward the cost of the trailer.

I bought mine at an HEB grocery store. I've seen them at WalMart. Probably any hardware store as well.

You've got to wonder just how much $ Jayco saves by sticking us with this. We picked up a strainer too at a swap meet. I think it was 50 cents.

Bought our mesh drain strainer at a dollarama dollar store. Came in a two pack, one big and a smaller one. Small one fits the bath sink and big one fits the tub. The crome outer ring fits flush at the bottom so it don't look like an add on. I have seen them at many hardware stores.

I bought this at Lowes. SS, slips right over the hole and is easily removed when needed.
