Kitchen sink covers

I just wanted to get your opinions on something. Is it better to leave the kitchen sink covers off during the winter? One of mine literally froze to the sink over the last week, when we had a few frigid nights, including at least one that dropped into the teens. I was able to remove it today when the temperature came up into the 50's. My rig has already been winterized.

if it froze to it and the only way you could get it off was when the temps came up - I would leave it off.

I doubt it will hurt it unless you have to remove from the sink to use the sink.

Make sure the covers and the sinks are totally dry before they are put on and they won't be able to freeze,then there will be no problems.

I never leave my cover on specially if I travel. One day the cover was found on the floor at the arrival camping site. Also what I dont like on our cover is covering the whole 2 tubs. I wish I could find a cover that cover only half of the sink. For the winter it is stored in my basement.
