Glass bathroom sink on 21 45OPP

This morning one of the glass bathroom sinks in the rear bath exploded into a million pieces.

Curious if others have had that issue. Good thing we are sitting here at the Red Bay service center. Jeff

Have read several posts here and on other forums about the glass sinks exploding. Have them replaced with stainless steel and you won't have amy more trouble.

I’ve had two explode so far. Third one is being installed now. All this within 4 weeks of actual use. I’ll be the new one they are installing now won’t last long either. 2021 37AP. If I get a third failure I will have Tiffin install the solid surface versions they are putting in the 2022 Bus.

I've also read several posts about the exploding vessel sinks. I don't think those were ever meant to be in something that rolls down the road. They may be made of safety glass but the strain on them in an RV is too much. They are compromised by the drain hole & when jarred just right will shatter. Personally, I wouldn't have one in an RV.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.
