Slip Sliding Sink

It took a whole year for me to realise nothing is holding my kitchen sink in place, no clamps or brackets. Maybe the dishes and pots and pans were helping. Well, it is bothering me now because it has loosened things up and water is leaking from the basket. That should be easy to fix but I have no idea about what to do with holding that sink in place. Suggestions?

If there are no threaded holes, or protruding studs from the bottom of the sink then my guess would be remove sink clean mating surfaces, apply clear silicone replace sink, wipe off excess silicone. Done 😎

Normally sinks are held in place by clamps and not adhesive
The sink on my Casita was missing two sink clamps , luckily I found them in a dead space under the sink
I would only use silicone / adhesive if I never planned on removing the sink

Thank you all for the advice. I will contact Escape as the trailer is under warranty.

OK! I received (quickly) instructions along with photos from Reace on how to fix things. It involved: outlining the sink with masking tape, scoring the counter with sandpaper and using copious amounts of quality silicone on the sink’s rim, particularly in the corners. Make sure the drain and the pipe line up, weigh things down and wait overnight or 24+ hours. Apply light pressure with a knife to liberate the masking tape and clean up with alcohol.
I tugged on the sink and the trailer shook.
Thank you ETI and Reace!

Here are pics of my sink- it has clamps on all four corners. It also has sealant around the edges.

Our 2017 19 looks just like yours, clamps with wingnuts on each corner and a ton of sealant.
