Problem Sink

We have 2015 Sunseeker and are finishing our second year of camping. Today I noticed that the sink, undermounted to the counter, is starting to separate from the countertop. I first thought that this was a caulking seal failure, but now It is clear that the center of the sink is dropping and separating from the laminate top. Very disappointing that a simple sink install could be failing so soon. We are not full timers and have only been camping about 30 nights so far. Any suggestions for a repair or easy fix.

I think the use silicone in residential. You would have to remove and start over I am sure. YouTube would be your friend here.

Should be clips underneath sink holding to counter top. Pretty common for one or two to fail if too much weight is put in sink. Check and let's know.

Sounds like the sink itself is warping and pulling away from the seal. If that's the case, about the only recourse is to replace the sink. You can probably find a residential model that's not cheap thin plastic that will work in the place of the existing one.

Thanks for the suggestions. The sink is stainless. I will probably caulk as a temporary fix with a reinstall of the old or a new one in the future.

When I had my countertops and under mount sink installed at home, they used wires mounted to the countertop and slung under the sink and silicon adhesive. Perhaps your sink had a similar mounting system. If not, it would make sense to use it to support the sink.

X2, tighten the clamps.
