Drainage problem

Hi everyone....Well my wife and on I are on our first trip and have been on the road for about two weeks now. We have had some minor glitches along the way but nothing that won't iron itself out once we get into a rythmn. There is one problem we are having that won't seem to correct itself. Our kitchen sink will drain fine for about 4-5 days and then it clogs up and stops draining. I go underneath the sink and remove the trap to check to see if anything is there and there isn't. Put the trap back on and it works fine for another 4-5 days and then clogs up again. Any ideas what might be going on? Thanks for your help.

When you are experiencing this are you traveling or are you stationary at a camp site? If it is when you are not hooked to drainage you have a vapor lock. Look at your roof vent and make sure it is clear of any obstruction. If not then you may want to add a small amount of length to it.

This happens when I am camped and not moving and it only happens in the kitchen. The bathroom sink and shower drain fine.

I agree with checking the vent pipe to the kitchen sink. If it can't get air, it will not drain.
