Yep, and the construction of my sink is about as good

We removed them immediately from the RV. They are heavy and a pain to store and I am using the sink during food prep so I do not want a cover over the sink. I have a flip up glass topper for my stove that acts as a grease guard.

I am surprised that they used such a heavy material, considering that RVs are typically constructed of lightweight materials, and mine is considered Ultra-lite. Seems like they would have used something that weighed about 40 lbs less.

HA!!!

The wife and I just went out, and decided to take them off the sink but leave them in two different storage areas. That way, we have them if we ever decide we need that counter space, but they are put out of the way semi-permanently.

I guess I hadn't told her about the bottom of the drawer falling out incident. She was shocked that they were heavy enough to bust out the drawer.

Of course, they were not the only things in the drawer. It was full of pots, pans, cutting boards, etc. These were stuck at the bottom so they would be out of the way for the week while we were camping, and the bouncy ride home didn't help. But they still added an extra 10 or 15 lbs to that drawer that apparently was the straw that broke that poor camel's back.

This is the correct answer.

Wow, we have the double sink and the one side never leaves because of the additional counter space and we also have the swing up additional counter. I would have never imagined these things could cause the sink to break away from the counter top. Seems if that happened something is seriously wrong with the entire set up but perhaps it is something to consider.

Mine is one piece and is not of the same material as the counter, it is a cutting board that also happens to fit the sinks. Being one piece it is too big to fit in a drawer or cabinet, but generally gets thrown on top of the cabinet and we just use a small flexible cutting board when we need one.

I use mine all the time. They provide great extra space to spread out when cooking and baking. Useful when we entertain for a buffet counter, and they are never ever in place when we travel. We leave nothing loose to become a flying missle.
There is a built in space under our sink for them to stow just like for baking sheets.

Your LH already has a storage device for both of your sink tops...look under your sinks on the right side....two vertical partitions that the tops will fit in for storage. Also, if you are unaware, the same wiring for the Bus is on the LH and there is a 12v connection under the sink cabinet for a light. I bought one that has a push button to turn off and on and now when I open the right side door, the light come on laminating the entire under sink cabinet space.

I can't believe your DSDP doesn't have a storage device for your sink tops.....

You could also use them under the tires to assist in leveling the coach/tt.

So...if you use them on your sinks for extra counter space, how do you run water to rinse things while cooking? or rinsing your hands? etc.???
