I purchased a 1999 bounder class A. Both drains drain very slowly. I have flushed them out from top and from drain but still slow. What could be causing this?

BVF6190,

Check for a plumbing vent. Sometimes found under the sink. Also check your plumbing roof vent to make sure it isn't plugged.

Hope this helps!

Go to any hardware store and get a 'ZipIt'

Long flexible plastic rod with barbs......run it down the drain to 'p' trap, twist it around and pull out the hair/gunk.

Works on sinks/showers.

That is provided the tank vents are clear and tanks are not full.


Ditto x2!
Get a flashlight and look real close at the drain. You will find it is coated with soap scum and hair. Everytime I have a drain that slows down there is stuff stuck to those small holes that are inside the drain pipe and just under it and further down stuck in the p-traps.
