I bought some Corian counter top material and after my next trip I'll be redoing the tops in kitchen and bath. Corian works just like hardwood so don't be afraid of it. Saw it, use a router on the edge,belt sand the corners, drill it. You can buy it raw and you just polish it ( like you polish a car)to the desired finish you like( mat, low gloss, med gloss or high gloss.

What is RTV?

I have give a big X2 on that.

I worked in a RV dealer for 3 years and last year bought a new
Eagle TT. I can say with virtual 100% certainty that if your service tech is even half as good as the ones I worked with, the quality of work should be as good or better than the factory.

RTV = room temperature vulcanization, i.e. clear silicone sealant

Got it. I used to use this for adhering my boy's scouting badges to his shirt. Super mom, eh?

Thanks.

Yes, thats exactly what happened!! My kitchen counter was also starting to lift due to a small gap in the right rear corner. It was barely noticeable but it had the potential to lift like my bathroom counter.

I bought my TT at Richardsons, was a great experience, hopefully their service dept. is the same caliber. We did our PDI at the service location in Riverside and they were very helpful.

Update: I just picked up my Jayco from Richardsons rv in Riverside, Ca. Wow!! The kitchen counter and bathroom counter they replaced look great. It seems as if it was worked on in the Indiana factory. They did an excellent job and I am very pleased with their work. My jayco was under warranty and cost me zero$$$
