2017 23B Table

anyone else having a problem latching and unlatching their table - to fold it down or bring it back up and lock it? It takes an act from congress to get it to budge..

We took ours out and use a small folding table if we need it.

Thanks for the input. Glad to know it is not just us having a problem. Seems a shame to have to replace it with a folding table, but that is a brilliant idea, because we dread having to open or close it.

One of the plus's of the small folding table is that we use it mostly outdoors and only use it in the trailer if bad weather hits, which leaves the area uncluttered as well as getting into the bed much easier.

Oh yes, our X20E had that same screwy setup. 2013 was the first year they started using the "improved" legs. I complained about it and got nowhere. Make sure to let Jayco know these are not user friendly.

What was worse for us is that we take our table outside and getting those cantilever legs through the door was a real pain. Taking the table outside used to be a sales feature. Not any more.

I replaced the legs with the older style folding legs, which were very hard to find. Not long after the table got soaked and the water pooled, causing the press board to swell. I had a co-worker who's into woodworking make me a new table top out of cedar. It's 1/3 the weight of the original table, it's water resistant, and it's stronger. I can stand on it and it does not flex.

Well Doc, I now have a winter project seeing your post and picture. We have the older style table but it's showing some sag from using it to sleep on. Last year I made a deck board to replace the table for sleeping. We still use the table from time to time but a new top is in the cards. I priced it out from the dealer and although the price wasn't to bad, the shipping costs that were added on brought it over 200 bucks. Not worth it in my mind. Your solution is the fix though. Thanks!!

Yikes!

It cost me $50 for materials and I took him out for a couple of lunches.
