          I have a 2015 Flying Cloud. Shower is draining extremely slow. How does one deal with unclogging a shower drain in an RV? Same as at home? I don’t want to mess up any of the plumbing.

              Search Amazon for the Drain millipede, or a similar snake, that you can insert down the drain and pull the clog out. This will prevent the clog from getting stuck or hung up somewhere else down the line (including the tank drain valve).

                  ^This. And I’d start with just cleaning out the strainer to see if that helps since its a slow drain. If you need it fixed asap, grab a plunger and plunge the drain.

                      Plunger did the trick. thanks. I’ll check out the drain millipede. makes sense about wanting to pull the clog out.
