38 GK Kitchen sink

We have a new 38Gk and the kitchen sink is the Corian looking top. The sink looks like crap. (Stains) We have tried cleaning it with three different cleaners to no avail. Any suggestions on a cleaner that will make the sink look better inside. Don't really want to use bleach. Thanks for any help. Jim

I also have the quartz countertops with stainless sink. I wasn't happy when Redwood went to the white single sink. I would try something like Bonami which is a powder but not abrasive or maybe the Magic Eraser.

I am too concerned about the White "Farmhouse" sink in our RW.

It was one of the negatives in our RW, our previous SOB 5er had a Stainless Steel Double Bowl sink.
We liked it much better than the White "Farmhouse" sink we now have.

I'm not sure what the new sink is made of but if you don't use an abrasive on it it will probably last a long time.

Hi,
Have you tried Bar Keepers Friend? Removes pot marks from porcelain. It works on non-stone finishes. I use it on my quartz countertops, works great on stainless & fiberglass.

I have a stainless sink in our RW, but white corian sinks in our home for 14 years and we use a Clorine cleaner and it works great. The only problem is the smell. I don't know if the peroxide cleaners would work as well. I use soft scrub on mine or the gel.

We have a 2015 38 GK and after a month of use it's still like new. I wipe it down regularly and have only used a Mr. Clean Eraser pad on it.

Good to know, thanks ... We're just moving in to our 38GK with the farmhouse Corian sink and have wondered about cleaning it.

Could be worse, like the RV early version of 1 piece countertops and sinks made of fiberglass We had in our 2007. Coffee would stain that thing.

38 BR kitchen sink has "sank"

Has anyone with Redwood product seen their kitchen sink sag in the middle by chance? It's like the coach hit a pretty good bump in the transit, and now there's a gap between the sink and the solid surface counter under the faucet....

Mine didn't sag, but it leaked in that spot because it had broken the seal. I just fixed it the other day with some clear adhesive.

Yes our sink leaks under the faucet too where it connects to the countertop. For cleaning I have been using "Soft Scrub" and it works great so far.

Intersting response there Atom and TNT....on this one, we asked the dealer to fix the sag, but the coach went into original service July 2013, and I'm a little worried about what actuall holds the sink in place. Surely it's not just adhesive is it? There isn't some sort of hardware under the sink? I haven't done the "contortion" moves yet to see for myself, since we haven't "received" it just yet, but reaching out to some veteran Redwooders to see what is being experienced in this little issue..

I didn't go under there, but normally it's just adhesive. On our house remodel, all our sinks were cast iron and they just used adhesive to attach to both granite and marble. they did secure them until it cured.
