Our first 5th wheel

Good morning,
I've been posting a bit but never really introduced ourselves. We've been RVing for many years, in a slide-on and a motorthome. We've been in our new 2012 29re Silverback for two months. First off we love the space!
Leveling is very different and it's not quite as steady as the motorhome. Overall its great.
My wife noticed that the bottom of the sink appears to be stained.Any suggestions on how to clean these sinks? I'm not sure what it is made of. The counter is Corian.
Thanks
Tim and Roberta fm CT

If you have Corian counters, then it should be a Corian sink also. There are specific cleaners for Corian that will take the stains out, mostly. Any placemthat sells solid surface material should have it available for sale also.

Thanks for your quick reply. Its Corian even if the sink is not shiny?

Does the sink match the looks of the countertop?

BTY, Corian is a plastic based product. If the sink is really scratched up you could try some polishing compound. The Corian restore kit contains different grit scotch brite pads and some liquid you spray on, polish with scotchbrite pad, wipe off. Very similar to restoring an automotive finish.

Hi,
No, the sink is a solid flat beige. The counter is glossy with specks of different colors. I wouldn't describe sink bottom as scratched. I has a brownish stain on the bottom.
