Just developed a four inch crack in our kitchen counter top. My fear is that with travel the crack will lengthen. Does anyone know how to repair/stop the crack?

The guys that make/install Corian in your kitchen at home can fix it in your RV. Most any cabinet top shop does Corian now.

When we first got our Allegro Bus, we broke both corian sink covers when an unsecured can of beans fell out of an upper cabinet. We now only keep light stuff above our cabinets. We took the MH to our dealer (Dickey Stout in Amarillo, TX). He sent them out somewhere. They came back repaired. Couldn't tell they had ever been damaged. Cost us $70.00.

Cracks are more difficult to repair than a clean break. It depends where it is and if you can access the bottom. the ideal would be to cement a bridge piece on the bottom to keep it from traveling, then use the proper seam fill to match the top and sand and buff to match the surrounding surface. Good luck, it can be made impossible to see.

I've worked with Jetta Stone a little (same basic material as Corian)
I stop drilled a crack using a 3/16" bit, then "Veed" it out both top & bottom using a die grinder with a 1/4" burr. I saved the particles from the process, mixed them with the Jetta Stone bonding agent which I used to fill the vee area & drill hole. After sanding back level, the repair came out 99.9% perfect.
The color match was excellent on my repair however, it may not be spot-on depending on the color you're working with.
