With the front bath the floor drain is below GW tank inlet so you have to have a pump. With the earlier side baths with the smaller GW white in color tank the inlet was was about mid point of the tank and they did not use a pump. But you had to put a snower drain stopper in to keep the grey water out the shower pan when traveling or when the tank was getting full. I have a 2004 side bath W/O shower with the G/W black in color 21/26 gal. tank and the drain inlet is below the frame rail so I could install a gravity drain. The newer 21/26 gal. tanks have the drain input in the rear up high on the tank so the drain line drops below the frame rail an rises again which requires a pump. The pump also acts as a check valve keeping the grey water out the shower floor pan.

I am not planning on using my shower during this cold winter season as I travel and... I noticed in deeper inspection that the drain is cracked probably from being hit from under the trailer before I bought it. I will have to replace it... anyone replaced one before? it looks like the part posted, so I assume I can obtain one easily... not so sure how easy it is replaced though.

My 92 16' - layout 4 (Sidebath) has a shower drain pump.

7 years of travel over some rough dirt/gravel as well & have never had issues with clearance.

If your referring to the white trap that was posted they are easy to find at most RV shops (or from Scamp) and pretty easy to remove and replace. I have had mine off a couple of time to clean it out after items (hair or dry grass clippings) get caught up in it.

If its cracked it may be due to lack of winterizing. It holds water and people often forget to pour some anti freeze down into the shower and sink drains.

I am constantly amazed at what I learn from this forum. Maybe, it's myself that I am amazed with because I don't know what I don't know, most of which, I've never thought about...hummmm.
