Somewhere between the shower and the sink you have a blockage..... Maybe some one stuffed a rag in the pipe during construction? The plastic cut out in the tank floated back to the pipe? Not unheard of for builder to leave that plastic disk in the tank... Hole wasn't cut right and the the disk acts like a flap valve?

Its times like these I would like to have one of those flexible probes with a small camera on the end like I have seen plumbers use. A quick look down the drain would settle the question. I still wonder if a small snake pushed down through the shower drain would free up any leftover plastic, etc. and push it into the tank. However, if there were something it might not be good for the macerator. Might want to take off the drain plug outside and let any foreign object out that way.

Not to miss the obvious, but if you open the sliding door fully, by removing the pin on the lower track, you can access the P trap under the shower, which is behind the cover on the side step. It is a threaded trap IIRC. Open the trap, see if there is something stuck in it, then run water on the output side of the trap.

The shower in my 2016 SS Agile does not drain. This, even after installation of a second vent prescribed by Roadtrek. I have another appointment for this issue but fear I am at the beginning of a long legal situation. Have there been any late developments concerning this issue?

Had the same problem with my 2015 SS Agile. I had a gray tank vent kit installed (part # 99920050) and the problem went away. It took 2 hours and cost $273.42 ($70.92 parts, $202.50 labor). Covered under warranty.

You can remove the shower P-trap (located behind the sliding door) and visually inspect the drain line for any signs of clogging; a short burst of compressed air into the drain can possibly dislodge any clogs in the drain line. Also, if the second vent is not properly installed, gray water ingress/ blockage into the vent line can make it useless.

Update on no-drain SS Agile shower: Second trip to La Mesa RV repair facility in Sacramento. I am told the drain lines and vents were inspected with no obstruction found. No solution was offered. La Mesa RV sold me $11,000 worth of extended warranty at time of purchase. Before any warranty work can be covered the issue (problem) must be submitted for review. I am told the no-drain shower is a "symptom" of the issue, not the issue itself. After inspection, no issue can be identified. I am left with a "symptom" without a responsible issue to be corrected. Interestingly, the $300 worth of work I authorized to discover the issue was waived because it was not found. I am left to ask how the warranty can cover the shower pan and holding tanks but not their function.

Default SS Agile Bathroom drainage issue

Did La Mesa agree that the shower does not drain?

Do the that kitchen and bathroom sinks drain?

OK, here's the cheapest and best way to use these showers. 1. Before you use the shower, empty the gray tank. 2. Take a "Navy shower" get wet, turn the shower off, soap up. 3. rinse, turn the shower off and dry. Spending what it takes to make it work will only work somewhat. It will never really vent properly because the tank is too small. Sorry but this is the best way to use it, and only use it if you finally need a shower as opposed to a sponge bath. 4. buy a huge RV.

I've been researching this issue today. I believe the issue is the shower drain line goes too far into the tank. The vent line for the tank is via the grey water line from the shower. Because it reaches to the water in the tank, the tank cannot properly vent and thus pressurizes and prevents water entering the tank. This line enters to the front side of the tank and that is likely why some people have had luck raising the front end of the unit. Raising the front of the unit is likely enough to uncover the end of the drain line and allowing the tank to vent and depressurize. I believe the answer will be to make a new vent into the grey tank at the highest point. I am considering looping this back to the ABS drain line from the shower, and thus to the roof vent. I'm on the search for a decent flange to use to give me a nipple to attach a hose to the grey tank. It won't be an easy fix crawling under on my back!!!

Found this drawing. It helps in the understanding.
