We just bought a used 2017 Big Horn 5th wheel from Camping World, had it towed to our permanent sight and already are having problem. The kitchen sink and half bath are both backing up grey water. I checked the plastic pipes under the kitchen sink, took them apart and it all seemed clear. Any ideas? The black water drains fine and so does the front bathroom shower, no problem there.

Can the grey water tank be full? The shower may have one grey water tank, and the sinks have a different grey water tank.

While you're at it, snake the drain pipes up on the roof.

I'm with Bobbo, look for a second waste outlet that the prep crew at the dealer missed. Hopefully it's that easy.

You say you just bought this RV, even though a 2017. Is there any warranty with it? If so you know what to do.

1. He stated used
2. MOST Towable warranties are 1 year. Jayco is 2, there may be others with 2
3. Almost ALL Towable warranties are for FIRST owner only. Regardless of when the unit is sold, even in the first year, including Jayco. Doug

Bingo. There are probably 2 Gray tanks. Some OEM's do a pretty good job of hiding the 2nd tank drain valve. It may be just a handle sticking out the drivers side on a extension rod. Doug

This is like, "My car won't start." And then you find out it's out of gas.
The handles for the tank drains are all in one spot. I have two for black: one the full bath and one for the half bath. There's only one handle for the grey. I checked outside that compartment and there isn't anything else. The water in the kitchen eventually goes down, That's why I believe its a clog. The full bathroom and W/D at the other end of the trailer drain fine. I think they sell a drain cleaner for plastic pipes, so I'll head to Lowe's and see if I can find it.

Same with my class A
Three tanks
Black
Gray 1 (Includes kitchen sink)
Gray 2 (Technically "Wash" not Gray, there is a legal difference)

The 2nd tank was "remote" from the common Black/Gray 1 tank


Home was where I park it. but alas the.
