Bathroom bowl sink won't drain

2013 378xl, my bathroom vanity bowl sink suddenly stopped draining. Does this have a pop-up stopper or something that might be closed? I've tried pulling, pushing and twisting with no luck. I don't think its a vent because the water sits in the bowl forever, no gurgling. Had been working after a long trip, but suddenly stopped draining on our last trip. Maybe something fell on it closing the stopper, if there is one. Thanks

Yep, they have a push to close drain. I freaked out when ours accidently closed.
Try rapidly pushing down on the stopper a number of times. I also pushed and turned at the same time to get ours up. Odds are, if you haven't been using it, it's accumulated muck and what not. Once you get it up, give it a good clean and exercise it regularly.
(my wife was putting the hand soap dispenser in the sink)

Look under the sink to see if the rod is moving the stopper. These can be adjusted. Later RJD

The 2013 XL378 should have a vestibule sink. The vestibule sink does not have a conventional drain stopper actuated by a rod. Instead they have spring loaded stopper "permanently" fixed in the bowl. To actuate you push down to close. To open you push down again. (or sometimes push down multiple times and twist)

Our shower drain stopped draining and after realizing my gray water tank waws not full, I took off the drain grating and found it full of my wife's and daughter's hair. I say their hair because it certainly wasn't mine since I hardly have any.

I too, am “follicley challenged” so no one can ever blame me for plugged drains.

Besides……I get blamed for enough other things.

Ha! TELL ME about it! I have hair, but it isn't 2 feet long and blond! Needless to say, she handles that mess!

Surely you mean it should have a vessel sink.

The stopper wouldn't budge trying to push and turn it. Too hard to get a good grip. Used a pair of slip joint pliers and was able to grab with these and gently twisting it. Then I pushed down on it an it popped up slowly

I am trying to understand this. 3 people use the RV.
Hair is blocking the drain.
2 people have hair on their heads.
One doesn’t.
That one blames the other 2 for the hair in the drain…
