HepvO sewer traps

Does Newmar use HepvO traps in our rigs (2015)? Curious if it is used on my washer drain and shower or if they are regular P trap.

I believe Newmar does use the waterless HepvO trap, at least under the shower. Not sure how far back their use goes, so can't comment specifically on your 2015 model. I would certainly not use any mechanical drain cleaning tool until after I had spoken with Newmar customer service. They should be able to tell you if, and where, waterless traps are used in your coach.

I had Hepvo on my sinks in the rear bath of my 2014 King Aire. They were great as they allowed for more storage under the counter.
