kitchen sink inserts-Travel with them installed?

Do you travel with your solid surface kitchen sink inserts installed or stored in a cabinet? I am curious if they stay in place or pop out...seems like they would break if they popped out.

We generally travel with them in a cabinet standing on their end. No real reason, mostly just that we only get them out if we need them.

Travel in place. Our last trip was over 4000 miles and they never popped out.

Ours travel in place. Only if severe bumps do they shift. ours are a lexan material.

Always leave them in place when traveling. They fit well enough and are heavy enough I feel if the TT bounces hard enough to pop them out, there will be other damage.

Travel with them in, except for the few times we forgot and left them on the counter and they still barely moved.

It could make a difference where your kitchen is, ours is a front kitchen on torsion axles and things left out hardly move. If you have a rear kitchen, especially with spring axles the results could be very different.

Very much agree. Our sink is in the front. Weight of trailer could also be a factor.

I tried traveling with ours in, but twice I found it in the floor. Now I lay it on the couch and it stays put. My advice to you, try leaving it in, if you find that it pops out, then find another place for it to ride.

I think sink location relative to the axle(s) have a lot to do with whether they will stay or not. Our current R/V with center island, they stay. Previous R/Vs, not so much.

And your answer is...

Leave them in or take them out. Ours travel under the dinette seat cushions.

We traveled for years with ours in place over the sink, but on a trip out west, the road was so bumpy, especially when crossing bridges, that they moved out of place. Thankfully, they did not break or come off the cabinet, but now we always put them on the bed while traveling and they stay put!

It really depends on road conditions. In some areas the roads are so bad even our heavy recliners move around. We store them in a cabinet.

Just wondering how you get the recliners in a cabinet?

Just having fun with the written word!

Good point. But how do you know I don't have inflatable recliners?

Touche'

But isn't "heavy" inflatable recliners an oxymoron?

Apologies for the thread drift...
