Any of the ABS plastic is doomed to crack

It's a sad reality that the plastic in our Airstreams won't last as long as the Aluminum. My sink took a golfball sized hole in it after a simple trip across town with a bottle of potty cleaner in it. I think it's a good idea now to travel without putting stuff in the bathtubs, sinks and counters that are plastic. Same thing about the plastic trim pieces, they disintigrate quickly due to their age.

On my 1970 Overlander, the plastic cover concealed the gas line going up to the gas light on the overhead cabinet.
