365SAQ Kitchen Sink

Back from Memorial Day camp weekend! The Sierra got a full workout and I noticed one flaw/mod needed. I have the Corian countertops and behind the kitchen sink, it seems some water pooled behind the faucet after cleaning dishes. The water pooled where the counter meets the wall. The next morning we noticed the wall paper was wrinkled being the sink where the water must have pooled.

I am thinking a bead of clear silicone caulking would rectify this. Anyone else experience or mod for this?

We didn't go back with Corian in the 365 after the fiasco we had with it in the 355.(It was black and showed every scratch-they switched to tan after we ordered the 365) Anyway, if the wall is wrinkled, you can always pull off the paper and put on the stainless stick on tiles from Lowe's behind it. Looks awesome. Just an idea in case you want to do something like that. But yes, I agree silicone to seal it with which ever way you go.

Stainless tiles will not prevent water intrusion into wall area, but will provide a great visual and easy clean surface. Still would put bead of silicon at bottom to prevent wicking.

Maybe I didn't make myself clear..I was saying to pull off the paper where it has wrinkled up and replace it with the tiles.
