Simple. The area would either be covered with pan(s) in use, or completely covered and nothing shows when using a cover when not in use. It doesn't prevent anything, just hides it after the damage is done.

Didn't care for the cover on our previous 17; reminds me of the Coleman stove used on a picnic table with the fold-out wings for wind. Haven't had any issues with it thus far. We used to use a drying mat on the 17 over the stove top as we had little counter space.

My stove cover is a wooden cutting board. When it's time to chop vegetables it fits between the sink and the stove. Double duty!

Gotcha! Obviously I was thinking in terms of preventing the problem, not the covering up of it.

Discovered discoloration around my stainless sink after only one week. At first thought it was from the bottom of the wood sink cover (which had brown spots of some sort) but now, after doing this search, see that others have also experienced. Also the same discoloration (even more) on the cover for the burners. Finally resorted to Comet but had to scrub a lot to get it all off. Strange--have never seen this before on stainless I've had.

Comet contains abrasives. I woudn't use it.
Don't have stainless in the trailer, but at home I use Weiman Stainless Steel Cleaner and Polish. Stainless Steel Polish | Stainless Steel Cleaner

I've always used Comet on stainless at home (for years) with no problems--works great--but as others have mentioned, this stainless is not the same quality as home products.

I looked at the Weiman. It states "removing dirt, residue, fingerprints, water spots and whatever other markings you notice on your stainless steel." Wonder if that includes rust stains. Will check it out. Thanks, Glenn!

Although we do not have stainless in our trailer now - we have had in the past - and many house kitchen sinks . What I have found most handy is a very fine sanding sponge ( like those from Home Depot or other Hardware stores ) following the existing brush pattern can make sinks look new .

BarKeepers Friend here for stainless.
Bigger issue is to discover where that is coming from.
