Grey water Clog

Help, a friend came over and washed a bunch of steak grease down my kitchen drain now it appears that I have a clog. Grey water is backing up into the bathroom sink. Three pots of boiling water down the kitchen sink has helped kitchen drain but grey water is still backing up into the bathroom sink. This is a 2009 Sunseeker MH.

Can I use a drain chemical? I bought some. I'm not sure I have many choices at this juncture. We are camping pretty far from any major city, 10 miles to a very small town.

I am hooked up to sewer and have emptied both tanks.

I'm not sure what a pull is but it must be on a separate system because I took a shower just fine.

Pull - handle to pull to empty the gray water

Sometimes there are two grays on the camper

Just one grey pull as far as I know. I was only shown one, I've only have a camper since May. I think the second one is unlikely.

This is not a full grey tank issue. I have emptied the grey tank many times successfully. There's a clear cause and effect of grease going into the drain creating a problem.

If your thinking a common type of drain cleaner I don't see why it would hurt your drain pipes any. They are the same plastic found in many houses.

My 5r has two greys and two black "pulls". It's like a manifold system when connected. If your worried about the grease thing then dishwater soap with warm water should cut the grease.
