EXTremist hit on the solution. I took a triangle file & filed notches so the plug fits in the notches when turned a quarter turn. It has worked well for me. The plug stays open until I turn it to the closed position. Don't know why manufacturer of sink didn't do it right.

Yeah but they sold it to me so they are responsible.

There are no notches in my sink drain - just a smooth round bore - no big deal - will just hack saw off the lower portion of the stupid long plug and use like in the old days - in or out.

Interesting...makes me wonder how that one is supposed to work. With mine, and apparently some others, the answer is fairly obvious the plug turns 1/4 to sit on a raised area in the drain hole. Yours looks completely different.

A small thing really - don't mind just having a simple plug.

Overall pretty happy with my trailer.

On another note - going out for a week on the trailer's 2nd camping trip - want to check out this water coming out of the tank problem.
