    Hi,
    We're brand new to RVing and have only been out a few times. We really enjoy it but I have
    an issue with my tiny little sink drain. I have not been able to find a drain strainer small enough to fit the sink.
    The stopper that came with the sink does not really stop stuff from going down the drain. I wipe off all the dishes
    pots and pans prior to washing them but I don't get everything. The drain is only about 1.25 inches.
    I can't find anything online that's small enough.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks..............

    You can also check out a lot of hardware stores including walmart, some will have the smaller sized strainers for sinks. Check any local rv stores as well like local dealers.

    We had no luck in replacing ours at Camping world, but we did locate one at a dealer in Garland, Texas. (Camper Capital)

    Forget the regular strainers and go for the replacement type that look like screen mesh and fit into the sink. These work much better and can be purchased at Walmart, Bed, Bath & Beyond or Linens and Things. You'll find them with kitchen gadgets and they come in different sizes so you should be able to find a good fit. I was a full-timer for years so know these work better and use them in my home now also.
