Shower drain

In our Land Yacht, the shower drains very slowly. I can't figure out how to open it up to clean it out to flow better.
Anybody have any experience?

Since it is the shower drain, you could have a bunch of hair in the p trap for the shower. Drain cleaner may be a good idea, depending on the year of your trailer, and whether it has a grey water tank.

Shower drain

We had the same problem in our newly acquired 1993 LandYacht. Fixed it this weekend. It was hair buildup. Had a devil of a time getting the spring-loaded plug out. The top (chrome) screwed off easily. Finally, I pushed down the plastic part enough to get a grip on the brass center with channel lock pliers and removed the drain plug. Once removed, I then cleaned out a totally disgusting mess of hair. The shower then drained perfectly. You could also use drain cleaner, I guess. Good Luck.

shower Drain

Try getting the drain filter out,bring a garden hose in with a nozzle on it,insert in drain,plug around the nozzle with towels/rags,use water pressure to blow blockage out.

Shower Drain

Same problem. Took mine out and it was so corroded and gunked up, I just tossed it and got an exact brass replacement at lowes for about $13. New silicone in base and back in business. I clean it out after each trip now.

We have the same problem in our 01 Bambi 19'. I've run a snake all the way to the tank, and used a rubber pressure bag on a hose to force water through the drain. When forced, the drain handles all the water. However, when draining with only gravity, it drains slowly and even seems to almost stop when the water is nearly all gone -- this is with the tank empty. I have no more ideas!

Draino didn't help, and I never could get the center of the drain out.
My wife bought some extra long tweezers at a flea market that
could reach 6" down the screen filter in the drain and, out came the
hair ball.
Works fine now.
Thanks to everyone for the suggestions.
Paul

I take a metal coat hanger, straighten it out, then bend a very small hook on one end. Fish it down the drain to the trap, twirl it and pull it out. Repeat. Nasty job, but you can pull most of the hair out this way. Works at home, too.

:Yep, 10 years have passed and drains are still getting plugged. That's the value of a long running Forum where many of us are still enjoying our now antique Airstreams.
