Dinette

Is it normal for the table to be wobbly? The way it is now i foresee lots of crying over spilled milk!!

My first Jayco (2005 Escapade), the dinette was terrible in the wobble department. My current Jayco has the dinette secured to the wall and it's very stable. So all I can say is that some wobble and some don't. I secured the dinette on my first Jayco to the wall so it was more stable.

The dinette in our 2013 is terribly unstable. I have a friend with a 2012 23B and his dinnette was much more stable and better built. The dinnette is one of the few things I don't like about our 23B. I believe I have seen posts on what others have done to make the table more sturdy.

Ours is going to be a table with folding legs. Our current PUP has a similar one, and it wobbled - so we got those rubber cane-tip thingies and put them on opposite legs. They don't look too bad, and they solved the wobble problem.

We have a new 2015 23rb and it's definitely wobbly. Someone on this forum told me to have DH slap down hard on it with his hand to "seat" the table and legs. Has helped some but still wobbly. I wish the window was a little shorter so the table could be anchored to that wall. The window being shorter would also allow for the shade to be put down all the way without the table extending into the window area. Not sure what they were thinking with that design. Table should have been a couple of inches shorter! Also think the old metal bases for the table legs would have been a better design but then no one asked me! Hope Jayco reads this forum for some practical design advice!

The problem I've found with mine is that the bases are mounted on top of the carpet. You could tighten the screws down to the bases and eliminate a lot of wobble. BEWARE, however, if your table is on your slide. There is very little space between the bottom of your slide and your floor! Mine is in the shop right now, but I'm going to look at replacing the screws with bolts when I get it back.

I also agree with gloryb on the dinette being too high.

On our 2015 32TSBH I found that ours was ridiculously wobbly and without a doubt someone would have been wearing a drink or soup. As it turns out boys table bases were not completely screwed to the floor. Fortunately I had my cordless drill and square but with me and I was able to tighten all the screws. That helped tremendously however there is still a tiny wobble due to the design.

Thanks for all the replies. Hooligan I've got my fingers crossed that the screws are just loose because that was ridiculous!!
