Almost looks like an impact with that chip taken out. Or maybe it was a high edge and pressure on the tile let it sink right there. Where is that tile on the floor?
Brian, I find it hard to believe you rarely see cracked tiles, but I will take your word on it. Maybe i am an exception.
We found one cracked tile a week after taking delivery of our Georgetown 369XL last December. It was located directly in front of the fireplace. It was promptly replaced by the dealer along with a few other minor issues. Fortunately, a box of spare tiles was sent with the coach. We now have two other cracked tiles. ( by the way, they did an awesome job.) One is along the side of the bad. Out of sight, out of mind. The other is by the sink. It looks to me that the counter was installed over a full tile. I see only two options. One would be remove the counter. The other is cut it out and try to cut a new piece around the cabinet. At this point, I would rather put up with the cracked tile. I will deal with it in the future if the broken piece works loose.
My biggest concern it where the grout is separating from the tile. I am worried about moisture getting between the tile and the underlayment causing damage. Particularly in the shower area. If I understand you correctly, this is not possible with the plastic tray that the tiles are glued into. What kind of glue and grout is being used (brand name if possible). I am fairly confident I will be making repairs long after the warranty is expired.
