I wonder if some clear silicone caulk would work to fill the holes? I have now bought the dish drain pads from Dollar Tree to put in the bottom of the little side of the sink to drain dishes on so as not to scratch it and I'm going to use my little trusty "dish pans" from hospital stays to wash my dishes in on the bigger side of the sink.

Wife did ours with a match. I patched the hole with epoxy and color matched the paint.

All kinds of stainless steel sinks for RVs here: RV Sinks Stainless Sinks For RVs, Motorhome Sink, Trailer Sink, Camper Sink, Round Stainless Sink, Oval Stainless Sink, RV Sink, Double Bowl RV Sink, Double Bowl Stainless Sink

Plenty of RV sinks here, too: http://www.rvpartscountry.com/RvSinks

Not sure any of them will fit your rig, but it's worth a look!

Had my kitchen sink replaced under warranty last fall as it had a crack in it. I was lucky to have caught it before it caused any water damage. You are right they are very thin. If it cracks again I will replace it with a SS one.

I knew I needed to be careful with our sink when I was under there looking at the water pump and I didn't need a flashlight because the light from the kitchen window shone through the sink enough for me to see what I was doing under there!

Are these the resin sinks that Jayco came out with about three years ago that were supposed to be stronger and more heat resistant than the former stainless steel sinks?

I would try a white or clear epoxy, less than $10.00 and would probably last forever. The silicone would likely peel and stain.

At least you didn't put that hot fork in your mouth!

A couple of things may help you out:

#1 You can pick up some epoxy putty at Home Depot (the paint dept.) that is designed for use on plastic/fiberglass/PVC. Just clean the area with alcohol, pull off a plug, knead it until it becomes one solid color (off-white), and press it into place. It'll set up in about 10 minutes and cure in a couple of hours. It's waterproof, so it should last forever. If you put it on the underside, you may not even see the repair from the top side (depending on the size of the hole).

#2 If you go for a replacement sink, keep in mind that your RV sink is not the same size as a household kitchen sink. It's a lot smaller. You can probably order a replacement sink the same size from Home Depot in either acrylic, quartz, or stainless steel. Being a "non-standard" size, it will cost quite a bit, though. Finding the same sink at an RV dealer may be less money. If your countertop is laminate (Formica) like mine, you can cut the hole larger with a jigsaw or a Dremmel Tool to accommodate a larger sink. Just make sure it will fit into the cabinet below the sink.

#3 If you repair it, or replace it with a similar product, be very careful of heat. Thermal shock can be as destructive as direct heat. I always recommend running warm water into a cold sink before you dump hot water into it - like when you drain pasta. The warm water will temper the sink so it doesn't crack from the rapid expansion of "thermal shock".

Just my 2 cents!
