Thumbs up

DW uses those hair ball collectors with the itty-bitty holes in all the drains.....I guess that's slow enough to not back up.

We had the same issue in our 2009 Classic. Called Airstream and they told me it was because of the water rushing so quickly as described by HiJoeSilver. I now place my hand over the drain to ensure it will drain more slowly, allowing smaller amounts of water to drain at a time. A pain, but it works.

It sounds like your little problem has been nailed down so this information is just being passed along for whatever it might be worth. I've had good success with flushing my drain lines out with a little gadget I picked up at the Home Depot. It is a little bulb type thing that screws onto your water hose. I got a little inline ball valve so I could control the amount of water flow from inside the AS without running outside to a spigot. So you stick this thing in the drain hole and turn on the water. The bulb fills up and swells, completely closing off the drain. All water is forced down the drain at a high pressure which blows any clogs away. Works great in the shower drain too. Get the one inch size. It will swell to about two inches which is big enough for all AS drains.

There are no clogged pipes, all vents are clean, to keep the shower drain from being a vent is to drain the kitchen sink slowly, I guess I can live with this..
