Shower not draining

My girlfriend just bought a 2019 Wildcat 31BH. Got it home, set it up, took many showers in it with no problem. It hasn't been moved. But for some reason the shower isn't draining now. The bathroom and kitchen sinks are draining just fine. What could be the problem? And how can I troubleshoot the problem?

You need to find the pull handle for the bathroom gray tank valve. It's going to be separate from the black tank for the bathroom and separate from the kitchen gray tank.

Look down near the tires and up by the frame. It can be hidden and might even have lost it's handle to the pull.

But it's there - you just have to find it.

Our bathroom sink/shower drain into the same holding tank, separate from the kitchen.

Could just be construction crud in the shower drain that's plugged, along the way to the tank.

Could be just the tank is full and the sink drain is almost full.

Pull the valve to drain the bathroom grey tank and see if that helps. Good luck!

does it not drain at all or just slowly? if the tank is full then draining the sink into the tank will cause it to back up into the shower, it's the lowest point. All shower P traps are accessible, either via the basement pass through or via an inspection hole/cover inside. May need to remove the trap and dig out construction debris as mentioned above.

Thank you! From her:
Thank you so much for researching my problem! The handle was stuck they had sprayed foam insulation around those handles and that one was stuck. I really had to tug in it I twisted it and turned and it finally released. LOTS of water!
