Shower drain problem

Hi all,

We just discovered on our maiden voyage that the shower will only drain if the gray tank valve is open. I'm thinking that it's a vent issue, something that shouldn't happen on a new unit.

Keeping in mind that the gray tank is completely empty, and the rig is level, the shower still won't drain unless the gray dump valve is open.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a vent issue. How about the other sinks? ( bathroom ) I would think that you would have the same problem with other drains to the same tank.

You can check vent pipe where it comes through roof line for obstruction.

It sure sounds like a vent problem. May look on the roof at the vent pipe for that tank and see if you see anything obvious. I have heard people say the vent was to close to the pipe not letting it work. Maybe you will get lucky and it will be simple. Good luck

X2. Definitely sounds like a vent issue! But let the dealer figure out how to repair it. Under warranty, of course!

Maybe the dealer is not close. For me it would be $100+ in gas to drop off and another $100+ to pick it up not to mention time wasted. I would get under and look at the plumbing
and I bet you can figure it out. If I brought mine to the dealer for every little thing I would be broke and/or never get to use it..

+1

I would definitely see if you can fix it. If it's a simple fix it's not worth the time and money to take it in. You could even call your dealer's service department (or Jayco) to see if they can help. If you end up being able to fix it, you've saved yourself a bunch of money and time; if not, you can still take it to the dealer.
