I have looked at your pics and my countertop does not have the wood to attach the screws to. And as far as the oven, the pilot light lights up fine and then when you turn up the temp it heats up to the temp setting and then it goes out, pilot light and all. So you can not cook anything because it will only heat up once. It is easy to relight the pilot light but it keeps going completely out. As far as the microwave, if you put a potato in it it will burn a hole in one side of it and the other half is still cold. The worst part of all of this is that there is no dealer support other than the original selling dealer. It is like buying a new car but only the original selling dealer will warranty it. And Forest River will not answer or return calls or emails. We have been full timers for over 12 years and have bought other new Rv's but this one is the worst one ever as far as quality and dealer support

Sometimes when you buy a product from a dealer far, far, away, in order to save money you don't end up saving a dime.

It's one thing if there are no dealers nearby selling what you want but to drive past them to someone as much as three states (or more) away, why would those dealers feel like helping you?

It's only natural that a dealer would want to make sure they have shop space and people to take care of those who bought from them rather than filling the shop and tying up their techs to support that dealer "900 miles away".

Can't compare with car dealers as they get a whole different level of support from the manufacturer.

You are wrong, I did not drive by dealers to get a better price. I bought this where we live in Kentucky to be able to come to Florida this winter. You jumped to conclusions about where we are. As far as support for the dealers obviously it depends on the company and Forest River obviously does not care about it's customers.

I "repaired" mine. Some engineering and 3M marine sealer... and silicone inside to insure a seal. The only way to repair mine(short of being the Thin Man) was to take apart the cabinet or remove the top. Neither was a good option on a newer RV. My end game plan is to put a drop in stainless sink and be done with it. I thought I wanted the sink covers(and can have some with residential sink), but it turns out I have to move them around when actually using the RV(in other words they are in MY way).

Ours did the same thing on our second trip out. Fortunately it was on the last day! Since it is under warranty, the dealer ordered a new component and will install this spring.

Our sink dropped also last week while out for a short trip in our 2018 23IKSS purchased new this past summer. This was only our third trip. It's a two-hour drive to our purchasing dealer and the last warranty work took three weeks. I am trying to decide which is the bigger hassle - take it back to the dealer or do it myself - which is why I'm looking at this thread and considering the fix it option.


My questions are:
1) What is the appropriate adhesive to use to reinstall the sink?
2) Should the drain and water lines be disconnected first? It is not hanging level given the attachments (actually it is being supported by a measuring cup on top of a sauce pan). Seems like it would be difficult to get a good bead otherwise?
3) Would I void the any warranty trying to repair myself first?
4) What would you do?

I keep rereading this post because it just seems inconceivable to me that a sink that has a metal flange around it that is supposed to sit on top of a wooden cut-out is somehow glued underneath the cut out because whoever put it together didn't realize how to do it. And yes I guess it's a warranty item but I probably would just find a good plumber or contractor or someone who knew how to like fix kitchen sinks and I might just shell out of my own pocket a solution that is adorable and quickly Dawn and skip all this dragging your unit to some repair center warranty item that takes months I don't know sometimes you just bite the bullet and spend the money and get it out of your mind when you've done it right it's just an opinion and I'm not sure if it happened to me whether I would be so tolerant to spending a couple hundred bucks at the least

Take it back to your dealer

When our sink fell down on just our second trip we took it back to our dealer. They repaired it and we had it back within 3-4 days. Your unit is still under warranty so I would have your dealer make the repair.

Don't bank on the "plumber" fixing it. My bosses granite/stone bath room sink fell out... 2 plumbers later it was fixed...but they never came back and removed the supports that I know of.

The sinks mentioned here are bottom mount type sinks... or at least that's my interpretation. Mine was/is and in a "granite/wood countertop"

Ok so I just watched a you tube on how an undermount sink is correctly installed under granite. The installer marked and cut grooves into the granite at the four corners. Pretty deeply!! Then he used some kind of specific anchor screw with a. Metal hanger which had purchase onto the wooden framing. I certainly not be using an angle grinder inside my RV lying on my back to don't his if it hadn't been done at the factory unless I were on a lung transplant waiting list or had a hazmet suit with a long intake and exhaust from outside. Yes maybe that strap deal can work but to do it right the granite or whatever it is on top needs to be taken out side where a qualified granite top installer needs to do the prep work with the angle grinder as pictured in the YouTube. That's how I would do it because every time that sink moves it's torqueing your plastics such as fresh water and grey water. Something else is gonna prematurely fail.
