Jayco Eagle sinks draining slowly...

We picked up our new trailer yesterday and are putting her through "sea trails" at local CG. We noticed the sink in the kitchen & rear powder room were draining very slowly? Any thoughts on what I could possible do to remedy here at the site? It's probably going back to the dealer for some other fixes so we'll certainly mention the sinks to them then. Thanks!Click image for larger version

it would seem that in order for the sink to drain, the grey tank would have to allow air out.

If the vent for the grey tank was partially blocked, air would escape at a slower rate. Is this unit brand new or new to you?

If it's brand new could be construction debris in the drain lines.


Bad vacuum breaker

This is brand new to us and never been ore-owned.

We had a faucet running slow and it was construction debris in the strainer. I would check the p-trap. Some construction debris even in small amounts can make a big difference.

You would think that quality control would prevent this but apparently it is too difficult to either close the drain or put a rag in the drain pipe to prevent this problem. We are expected to fix their products after we take possession. Sad state of affairs.

Forgot to add that Jayco has been purchased by Thor so we'll see if the quality sinks to their normal level or stays at Jayco's level. Hope it stays up like Airstreams did.

You beat me to it, I was going to say the same thing. Hopefully Thor ups or at least maintains quality!
