The Zip-It Drain Cleaning Tool worked great on ours and yes, it is re-usable.

Thank you, everyone. When I first noticed how slowly it was draining, I poked around with a piece of wire. In hindsight, it likely jammed things in tighter. Bought one of the Zip-it's. Could feel the blockage, but couldn't snag anything to extract it. As per instructions on Travel Jon Waste Digester, put it in the drain, which by this point really, really wasn't. Repeatedly yesterday afternoon I would top off the standing water in the drain. This morning took the original wire, this time with a very slight hook in it and started gently poking and twisting. Followed by the Zip-it. All I can say is that my wife's long beautiful hair is pretty disgusting after spending time in the drain. Thanks again everyone!

Cleaning out shower drain

Like a Kitchen sink every shower has a trap. If cleaning with a hook around the cross bars does not work look under the coach floor just below the shower. There should be a plate with most likely 4 screws so you can get to the trap. Take the plate off It should be at least 1'x 1' square. Reach up inside and unscrew the trap. If nothing in the trap you can access the cross bars above easily. It does not take as long as it does to pour in strong chemicals and works better. If it is over the wheels just jack up one side the tire will stay on the ground and the floor will raise enough to get in to it. And it is Free.

I am continually amazed at the goof-ups that get out of the factory. When I was having a problem with my shower draining, and BEFORE I found out about the Zip-It, I took off the access plate to remove the trap for cleaning. The bottom of the trap was tight against the floor! It would be impossible to get it off for cleaning!

I've used Drano in two MH"S spanning ove 12 years. Never caused any problems for me or my seals.

I think most common household chemicals are ok in the pooper.
