Thanks for the reply. Seems reasonable from my measurements, but I've read from more than one person that the counter extension had to be lowered from the flush position, so just seeking information. I'm not a mods expert by any stretch of the imagination - just looking for somewhere to put my water pick!

If it's flush on the kitchen counter, it has to be flush on the bathroom counter.
Same material, same lip form, same spacing(on my 2018 anyway).
All that might possibly be required is a piece of 1/2 or1" spacers to get the hinges to space correctly against the bathroom sink cabinet side. Easy stuff right there.

But
We didn't do that.
While in the middle of the move/change of the shelf the spousal unit wanted a waterproof shelf with a groove around the edge to catch rolling things. We used the hinges from the kitchen sink extension with a Walmart opaque white cutting board as the top/counter. It doesn't match, but it has a groove and is waterproof. We never use the kitchen sink or stove so the extension there was useless. We are putting things like inverter controls, ags controls, battery monitoring on the cabinet wall where the extension was.

Also:
When we put the extension on the shower side of the sink cabinet we replaced the wood panel on the shower side with a plastic lens used on trougher ceiling lights. Now we're waterproof there also.

There are(sadly) some sideways pictures in my thread in the link below.

I'm especially interested in the counter top extension and curious if you have counter thickness, hardware purchased information you could share.
This is what I came up with, Its a cutting board we purchased at Walmart.. works Okay... have plans on replacing the whole mess with new sink and extension.

I have a few projects to finish like wheel wells, then I'm going to put an index post in my build(ish) thread.

Wheel wells keep getting put off.
Move battery, change oil filler, add a bin, swap black tank end to end.
All have to be done before fender wells.

I added an extension to the Black Tank access port so you don't have to twist the connection down before you connect to dump, I need to post a picture. I've seen a few post to purchase that macerators but i can hook up a lot of hoses for $300.00 plus.

My macerator was 65 bucks and I'm very very very happy with it.

If you are talking about keeping the passenger side mudflap from hitting the exhaust pipe (a common problem) my solution was to add some weights.

They are standard truck mudflaps and you can find mudflap weights all over the place (even some raunchy ones if you want LOL).
