Counter tops

Does anyone know exactly what material was used for the 2013 MY counter tops?

Mine is the real quartz, but they only did that for a very short run in late '12 & early '13 models, build date on mine is Nov. 2012. Yep, it's heavy, but we are very pleased with it, it's pretty much bullet proof.
After that they called it Corian, but who knows what the exact brand may be. Corian usually has their little medallion embedded in the counter somewhere.

Ours was built in Feb 2013 and has the real quartz. Wasn't initially thrilled with it because of the weight, but after we swapped trucks for our dually, was really glad we had them. Still am, they are wonderful.

Agree - consider ourselves happy to have the Quartz. Love the ability to not worry about a hot pan or plate and after 5 years they still look great. I think the other countertops were LG but not positive.

Can you place hot pots and pans on top of quartz?
I may have to make a confession to the Mrs.

Still Having Trouble

I've been off this forum for quite awhile. After all the troubles we've had, we had our new RW at our dealer a couple of times. Once to fix some problems and to identify and get approval for other items. This took months. Finally all remaining problems were approved. Then we had to wait for the parts to come in. That took weeks. Sept 18 we hauleded our RW to the dealer. We picked it up Sept 25. All repairs were made. We had fingers crossed that we could finally enjoy our beautiful new RW. We took off for our 3rd outing with fingers crossed that we wouldn't have any major trouble. This is a long trip, from N. Calif to OKC. Everything seemed to go well and we were beginning to think all was well. Then yesterday at the RV park where we'd stopped for the night a women came to our door to let us know water was pouring out of our trailer. My husband found that when we hooked up to city water it was backfilling our fresh water holding tank. Has anyone had that problem? Also our couch in living room has started moving when we travel. It gets in the way of the slide when we bring them out. Don't know if it's supposed to be fastened down. Don't remember that happening before. Though we've not gotten to use our RW much it's made the 7 hour round trip to our dealer many times. Only started to be a problem on this trip.

Sorry I messed up and posted about our ongoing problems on this thread. We have corian counters in the new RW we bought in April this year. Even the sink is corian. So far I like it but don't think you can put hot pans on it.

As far as I know you can put hot pots on any granite and quartz tops and have no worries. I have done it for years and no problems yet.

Same as Steve.

On the subject of water filling the tank, the one way valve in the pump probably has some debris in it. Try turning off the city water and running water from the pump. D this three or four times. If it still fills tank, reach in behind the basement wall and close the winterizing valve. This will bypass the tank. You won't be able to pump tank water till you fix pump but it won't fill tank.
