2 Questions--Kitchen Sink Falling down and Sewer Smell during high winds

1. Hello everyone i have a metal under mount sink that is starting to fall down. Looks like its just held up with adhesive? What type should i buy?

2. The trailer is a Stealth Toy Hauler. Ive heard of covers for the holding tank roof vents that are supposed to block wind and reduce odors in the trailer. Is there a certain brand people can point me towards?

Thank you for any advice!!

I have used the cyclone vent covers in the past with great results.

Go to your home improvement big box store and talk to the folks in the paint/adhesive dept, they should be able to tell you exactly what adhesive to use. Read the label to confirm their recommendation and get after your sagging sink!

Im familiar with different caulking. Just trying to find out what Forest River uses. Although i find so much broken stuff on this trailer maybe i shouldnt use what Forest River originally used.

The sink has clear silicone along the seam. Its hard to tell if they also used clear silicone to attach the sink itself.

There are fasteners made to attach sinks under the counter. While your at the paint/adhesive dept just go to the plumbing dept and talk to them, they'll tell you what to use.

If you don't find better suggestions take a look at 3M brand 5200 Marine adhesive. Super strong on boats, used below the waterline. Rated for fiberglass and metal. Get the fast cure type as regular takes a week!

The problem with some adhesives is the underside of the counters are usually made from particle board.

That could be a real problem if the particle board is deteriorating.

X2, check the clips under the sink.
