Question Kitchen sink fell into cabinet. How to fix

The kitchen sink in our 2021 Jayco Eagle 5th wheel fell into the cabinet.


We'll be on the road for the next 2 months. Our longest scheduled stop at any one place will be 3 days.

The wood piece that was holding the sink was only glued in. There's nothing to screw the loose wood piece to.

Has anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions?

TIA

If youíre trying to glue the piece of wood back so you have something to attach the clamps to, I would use construction adhesive with 2 or 3 clamps to hold it in place until the adhesive sets up. You may have to drop the sink down a little to have room enough for the clamps. Another option is to call a mobile Rv repair person. Working under a sink is absolutely no fun. I hope this helps.

Itís actually not that hard, google ď attaching under mount sinkĒ there are several ways to do it. If you were near Bellingham I would do it for you or maybe thereís someone here that could assist you
Itís called doing a good deed for the day

I had the same thing happen, but I saw what was happening before it broke loose completely. I glued the wood pieces back with J B Weld. I also cut several pieces of wood and braced the sink up with them. I left the braces under the sink as they secure the sink and give me peace of mind that the sink will not fall. I also placed wooden braces under the glued wood until the J B Weld hardened.



This has worked well, the sink has stayed in place.


Attached are photos of the braces I made to help support the sink. I also placed a short piece of board under the brace at the bottom to spread the load on the floor.

Oh, wait, you said Google? Boy do I get jumped on for telling people to do a bit of research on their own LOL

I have the same issue, and also caught it before it "fell in".

Will be fixing it in a few weeks, once it's out of storage.

Found a video on YouTube and the guy used Gorilla epoxy to attach the wood back to the underside of the solid surface counter. Said he had no issues after that.

That's what I'm going to try. Fingers crossed!

Good luck with yours.

We found a dealer who did the work the following day. It involved removing the entire center island countertop and unhooking plumbing and electric. The original factory glue job only had a few spots of glue.

Thanks for the suggestions but we didn't have the necessary tools and wouldn't be back home for two months.
