Shower drain?

If no shut off valve for shower drain, what keeps gray water from splashing back up into bath? Our old casita had a valve. Just courious.

Shower drain?

A drain cap and an empty Gray tank when towing.

The shower drain in the floor has a piece that screws in to seal it. You unscrew it to allow the shower to drain.

I completely understand what you are talking about. I asked an owner this weekend and they never think about that so I don't think we need the hepvo valve.

We have the same problem with gray water coming up into the shower when under way. The drain valve has threads to screw into the shower drain, but the shower drain is missing the threads. We have an appt with Rease to have this repaired. Not sure if this is your problem. We always try and travel with as empty a gray water tank as possible. But life is never perfect...!
