New owner- help with drains!

We bought a Keystone Cougar 2013, bunk house. Were attempting to live in it while we build a house. Already going crazy!

The kitchen sink wont drain. We took off the p trap, snakes the drains with a 15 line and have tried vinager/soda and now enzymes. It has done nothing! Still backing up. I feel like Im missing something. Any suggestions?

Empty the tank it drains into. Lots of trailers have 2 grey water tanks. Have you drained the front (galley) tank? Should have a third valve forward of the other two.

Model number

What model number do you have (Floor plan) when you remove the P-trap is it full of water ? Could the blockage be between the sink and the P-trap in the tailpiece of the sink?

We took out the p trap and it looks completely clean. Is there another p trap?

We have a Jayco, but we have a separate smaller tank for the kitchen, and it fills up pretty quickly. So, we have 3 valves. Ours are all together but I have seen some units where some valves are not all conveniently placed.

I agree with Wyldfire you must have 2 gray water tanks. The one for the kitchen is full. I have 2 gray water tanks and of course black water tank the one in the kitchen seems to fill up quick.

We have a 2013 Cougar and the galley drain valve is outside on the driver side almost under the sink. Kind of hidden by the frame. Handle is hard to see.
May also have fallen off as ours did. Lower coroplast to see.

Drains

Just a thought alot of people have said there valve handles have fallen off. Maybe because the trailer is new to you the handle is missing and you do not see the valve.Possible you might have to crawl under and do a closer look.


That didn,t come out right. Maybe do a better search. I'm Not trying to be a Smart a--

Yeah, it sounds like there's a gray tank that needs to be drained. Our 2014 Cougar HC has the galley drain handle behind the skirting at the edge of the tire and sticks thru the frame horizontal to the ground. What model trailer do you have? Seeing a floorplan would be a great help.
