When you add a default gateway with:

route add default gw dev enp3s0

you'll note that you now have 2 routes with the same metric of 0 (use 
route -n to see the metric field - couldn't get ip route to show me the 

When using ip route command, you need to specify a different metric 
otherwise it won't take.  To me, ip route is doing the right thing as 
having 2 gateways with the same metric will confuse the routing process.

If you need to use ip route to add another default gateway, make sure to 
use a different metric:

ip route add 0/0 via dev enp3s0 metric 



PS: In my virtual environment *[0]*, the routing tables for tables t2 
and t3 appeared incomplete.  The route specified in the route files for 
network was missing - most likely cause it was already in 
the main routing table.  Only the default route appeared in the tables

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-enp0s3 dev enp0s3 src table t2
default via dev enp0s3 table t2

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-enp0s8 dev enp0s8 src table t3
default via dev enp0s8 table t3

$ ip r l t t2
default via dev enp0s3

$ ip r l t t3
default via dev enp0s8
