Tub not draining

Weird problem. I have standing water in the tub. I am pretty sure it is not blocked. The way the trailer is parked it is on a pretty good pitch. The pitch its on is making the water lay to the opposite side of the drain. Can that cause the water to stand still when it is over the drain. It will not drain at all

It shouldn't. Try some good ole liquid plummer. Half a cup and it might just clear right up.

I was able to access the trap. I removed the trap and at that point there is no block at all

No, the water does not go down at all. If you pour it over the drain the water level just rises.

Possibly the vent pipe is clogged.

Depending on how much of a pitch you're on, it may have some odd vapor lock going on in the p trap or the tank vent. How long is the drain pipe run to the tank? Is it up hill?

My 1st thought was: RV drains, (and RV refrigerators), often do not work right if/when the RV is not level.
