    Have looked in search but no avail. The water drains very slowly from the sinks and I thought they may need cleaning, if so will hot water and soda be okay or to harsh,what do you suggest. The van is on the level.

    On my van all plastic "push" fit. Took em apart, cleaned em out and replaced took around half hour. :thumb: Don't know what the mucky previous owner had put down em. :shout:
    My manager wipes all greasy plates etc with paper towel before washing em in sink really does help. :thumb:

    We clean grease off plates with kitchen towel as well.

    After every trip I use Buster Kitchen Fresh down all plug holes. Link is just an example, available in several places - we tend to get it at Lidl or Aldi when they have it cheap as a special.

    Mine drains very slowly partly because the pipe from the drain in the sink is horizontal to the down pipe. Ridiculous design, plenty of room to angle it down.
