    Hi,

    I have a 1998 Kontiki 640L which I live in during the working week so it's well used.
    I've found cracks in my shower tray in various places arund the gutter area, the tray does seem to have quite a bit of flex in it.
    As I have had the 'home for 18 months I can't say whether the cracks have just appeared or whether some of them are pre-existing, but never mind too late now.
    I am surprised at how thin the plastic is, I would have expected something a lot more substantial but I guess it's down to weight saving.
    The help I need is that this is aThompson moulding and has the wheel arch moulded in to it so I doubt if I will get a replacement. What can I do to fix this or where could I find a replacement?
    I could also do with a corner sink as well, it's one with the wings on.

    Thanks

    Roger

    If you can get it out, reinforce underneath where the cracks are with fibreglass matting which will seal the cracks and prevent them recurring.

    Put some white foam packing underneath the tray to support it before you reinstall it and it will not flex.

    You could also fibre glass some support ribs underneath using cardboard tubes as formers and glass them over
