Red face Newbie with a plumbing issue

How do you clear a clogged tub in a 2011 cherokee?

Thank you for any guidance you can give me.

to the forum.

I'm moving the thread to plumbing and water systems for more precise help.

Is it plugged? What would it be plugged with?

Is it maybe just not draining? The drain system is vented, and if air can't get into or out of a vent somewhere, things won't drain properly.

It is probably a hair clog. I need to replace the plug drain with a strainer type drain.

If you have a P trap just unscrew the clean out plug under it.
See this link:

Are you sure your grey water tank is not full and backing up into the tub?

The sensors show the tank is empty. I have long hair and am uncertain how to remove the hair from the drain.

Don't trust your sensors as they are very unreliable.
Dump your tank to be sure.
