New White Hawk Shower Drain Problem

Thought I'd share an interesting maintenance issue with everyone. The shower in my brand new White Hawk 30 DSRE was draining slowly so I used a plunger, figured loose hair, ect., was blocking the drain. After plunging, would not drain at all, completely stopped up. Gray water tank drained and nothing else was stopped up. I ended up removing the short 90 degree drain fitting underneath the shower drain and inside the drain pipe was a very flexable 2 barreled rubber "hose" about 4 inches long that was completley blocking the shower drain. Called the service department at the dealer where I purchased the RV and the tech explained that Jayco had started putting these rubber, he called it a valve, inside the drain pipe to keep hair from blocking the drain. From looking at the valve, I couldn't figure out how it would work. Anyway, he said he'd recently worked on several stopped-up drains and all were caused by the flimsy rubber valve and that he simply removed them. That's what I did and it easily pulled out - problem solved. The valve was so flimsy, the pressue of the plunger caused the valve to suck back and tangle up. Be warned, if you ever use a plunger on your drain and it won't drain afterwards, this could be the problem. Didn't think to ask the service tech if Jayco was doing this in other models.

Welcome to the forum. Thank you for posting this information. I too have a White Hawk, but so far no drainage problems with our shower..
But if the drain does slow down, I'll know where I will look first!!

I guess this is some type of one way flapper valve to minimize the gray water gas and back washing from backing out floor drain?
