I assume that is a Corian type product? If so a Professional can make it look new again. Do a YouTube search.

I wonder if there is a screw at that location coming from underneath. Possibly did not pre drill hole thru the cracked pc to proper hole size.

I can hope it is something like that funny thing is our unit has not moved since we bought it in Sept 2019. And would you believe the screws on the outside back out even sitting lol...

Thanks Tim
Have you given any thought to "end drilling" the crack to prevent if from spreading?

Sadly it is something I will be doing on my rear cap to prevent a 1" crack from expanding. Twice repaired and failing again.

Thanks i would have done that but the crack has terminated at both ends. I know it is hard to see it in the pictures but the part that is cracked is beside the oven vent and it has actually dropped about the thickness of a time.

Yes, can't really see in the pictures. I forgot to look at mine this weekend while prepping to take to storage.

Cyclone was a good run, just became too cramped. We certainly had good luck with it, even with some of the problems. Biggest being the ramp failed. But that was something I could fix myself, which I did after Lippert sent me a door 6-7 years out of warranty.

Truck

Ordered in February, no status updates yet as of this past friday, no build date.
Dealer is supposed to have their rep look into it as well as change the order priority.
And I have an appointment scheduled with Utility Bodywerks for mid September. Initially I thought when I made the appointment in February that it was a long ways off. Now I'm wondering if I will have the truck in time, or for that matter what model year it will be.

Maybe it has to do with ordering a 450 Limited. Just checked, my order date was 02/27

General RV replaced my countertop. Turned out the cabinet underneath was not properly secured and it twisted the top and cracked it. We noticed it after we took delivery but no issue with warranty replacement.
