Caulk in kitchen sink

There is an excessive amount of caulk around the kitchen sink drains. It is very gooey and dirty and I want to remove it. What do I use?

A plastic knife and WD 40. Knife to cut it loose from the drain and WD40 to remove the residue.

A goof off wipe works wonders on old caulk and will not harm your sink. I had the same problem

We have had the same problem. The dealer recaulked and now we have the same issue again. What kind of caulking are you going to use?

The drains in you home are sealed with plumbers putty, why would you use something else in a n RV??

My sinks were the same when we first used the trailer. I had a few warranty repairs that needed to be done so I had the dealer clean and fix the sinks at the same time. Not sure what they used but it has not been a problem since then.
