I made a tool to clean my drains by wrapping a bicycle tire tube around the male end of a short piece of hose. I connect the female end to my garden hose. The tire tube end fits into the drain and seals the ID to form a tight fit. I hold it in place and someone turns on the hose, this will blast the clog and soap scum buildup out of the drain.

We take the cover off in the shower and pull out what we can. If that doesn't work well enough, we bring a hose inside the bedroom window and stick it down the drain with a towel wrapped around it to catch the spray. Then turn it on a little at a time. We do this about once a year and that works for us. We live in the coach year round so adapt your frequency based upon your own usage.

Be careful with a coat hanger or snake in an RV because of the use of the HepvOĀ® valve in place of a P or S Trap. Using a coat hanger of snake will destroy that valve and allow orders into your unit.
