This depends from state to state(or country if you're outside the US). Unfortunately local government legislation differs too much but this should serve as a rough guide.
Refer to local government legislation for datail.
Lavatory needs at least one "S" bend before entering main drainage. All outside piping needs to be at least 2 feet under ground.
Basin, bath and shower drainage can be connected together but needs at least one "s" bend each before connecting to main piping and needs to be at least 2 inch diameter.
"S" bends need to be as close to drainage inlet as possible.
Depending on your region a vacuum break or a vent shall be installed on the main drain.
Refer to diagram
i : sink drain
ii : main drain
iii : vacuum break or vent

Does shower / tub drain into black water tank


Would depend on the plumbing, but usually yes. Only toilet water doesn't.

If you have access to the black water tank, you can put dye in the shower, and then test it.

Shower in basement is backed up. Wondering if it's because a floor drain is covered up.


sounds more like the drain line is clogged between the shower and the main stack, and shares venting and drain with your kitchen sink. Have a plumber run a drain snake down from your kitchen drain (after the 'P' trap ) to clear the line. A covered over floor drain should have no effect on the back-up.

I think you have posted this several times so I wanted to add this.

The best thing is to have a dealer do it. You need to know if you have by-pass kits installed, depending on what you have for storage tanks they need to be drained, RV non-toxic anti-freeze needs to be added to plumbing and flushed through, water lines should be blown out along with draining so if there is a place where the water was level it gets forced out.

Here is a quick info for a skyline, but it really depends on what you have for plumbing.

Purchase 4-6 gallons of RV approved, non-toxic anti-freeze.
2. Drain all tanks, fresh water and sewage tanks.
3. Turn water heater by-pass valves to by-pass position. (The by pass valves are located near the
water heater incoming lines - an access panel may have to be removed depending upon the
model.)
4. Drain water heater.
5. If installed, remove water filter from assembly and discard. Install diverter if included.
6. Pour an amount of RV non-toxic anti-freeze into the fresh water tank to fill the tank above
minimum water pump operating level. (Use of a long funnel may be helpful) Add more, if
necessary, during procedure.
7. Turn on pump switch and open the cold water side of all faucet fixtures. Leave open until the
anti-freeze comes out (generally, pink in color). Repeat for hot water side.
8. Flush toilet until anti-freeze begins to flow into the bowl and then pour one gallon of anti-freeze
down the toilet to winterize the black tank.
9. Pour anti-freeze down each shower/tub, lavatory sink, and kitchen sink to fill p-traps.
10. To winterize gray tank(s) pour one gallon down each related sink drain.


*****Now the best thing is to post a new post and see if someone has your manual to be exact.

But if you get no response, and refuse to let a dealer do it, you have a little bit of info to help you.

Sorry I couldn't find the exact method for your model.

This sounds like a HOUSE plumbing issue. Is the line porperly vented? Bubbling sounds like the line needs venting. If you cannot go through the roof, they now make local vents that work.

I am instaling a shower under my house and i was hoping to get away with not cutting into the concrete for the drainage, is it possible to raise the shower bottom a foot of the ground for the drainage, and...


Yes, you can raise to avoid the cut by raising shower as long as gravity drain can occur, i.e. you can drain the shower to connect to existing drain lines. Definately put the s-trap in, if no trap then plumbing gas comes back and shower will smell. Remember to put in a plumbing vent or tie in to existing vent.

Installing lift station. have 30 gal sump bucket


Depending on local codes, you may need to vent a 2" line separately out the roof. Otherwise, you may tie this vent into the other house vent line, but it should be a 2" vent conected to another 2" vent line. Again, you will have to check local codes. The drain connection should be made with a 2" connection into the top of a 4x2" wye 10' from any other connection. This follows most plumbing ordinances.

That's strange! You usually drain the plumbing with a special fitting that goes into the water supply connection. You use compressed air to blow all the water through the lines and into the drains. But, your drain has water in it, so you must have a clogged drain? Or maybe you need to open the drain, then blow it out?
