    shower

    Does anyone have any advice. Shower drains really slow. I have cleaned it out and it's not clogged. Any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum Jason! Has it been slow to drain since you first used the shower?

    We had the same issue. There was a clog. Drano gel did the trick.

    I believe that your shower has a 'duck bill' in place of a p trap and if it's draining slowly, the duck bill is reversed. Here's a thread where it was previously discussed... http://www.mygrandrv.com/for...uck+bill+drain

    Shower drains can be either traditional P traps or "dry sealing valves".

    From our Reflection owners manual . . .
    "Your RV may be equipped with a dry sealing valve that prevents the escape of odors from your waste system and eliminates the need for P-traps. Should the RV drain piping system become clogged and a mechanical cleanout tool is used to open the drain pipe, it is important that the dry valve be removed before passing the cleanout tool through the piping."

    How you solve this probably depends on what type of shower drain system you have.
    Does anyone know which system is used on the 379FL ?

    Sounds like it's time for the OP to contact Janice with his VIN so he knows which type of system his trailer has.
