Drain Issues

I've been researching the forum for solution to a kinked passenger side drain issue. As I understand the discussions, to access the kinked area, i have to remove the shades on the passenger side, remove the valence and associated parts. At this point, will I be able to see the kink, cut the PEX, and install a 90 fiting? Or, will I have to remove more of the front cabinets? The coach is a 2015 DS 4018.

My first question, did the drain recently stop draining ? What makes you think the pipe is kinked?

No it has been an ongoing problem. I am the second owner of this coach and have had it since last January. I cleaned the three other drains last spring but have had trouble with the drain over the door continually. I've read all the threads I could find on ivr2 about the issue and the only reasonable conclusion is the kink issue. I've used water, air and wire to clear any obstruction without success. I am open to other solutions but it needs to be fixed soon. The water and crud that drains down the side of the coach is very disconcerting.

Ok where I got the best access was :
1)Remove shade over the door
2)Remove the plywood that shade mounts to
3)Remove right front valance
4)Remove front windshield shades
5)Remove board that the front shade mounts to
At this point you can look up into the right front corner of the cap
It might’ve possible to do this by only removing 4&5 first. (Two sets of hands recommended)
Of course this is assuming 2016 and 2018 are built exactly the same. They probably are close.
