Dual pedestal table wobble

Wondering if anyone has modified their dining table to make it more secure than the dual pedestal arrangement on the 265rslw TT. The wobble makes me a little crazy

We stabilized our table easily by purchasing and extendable closet rod about 3 foot long. We could then gradually tighten the rod and propped it up nearest the cushion to provide a third stabilizing post Works great.

We have the same set up, making sure the receivers on the floor were fully tightened helped eliminate some of the wobble.

I wasn't able to get it totally secure, like a lot of things in my RV I couldn't make perfect, so I changed my way of thinking.

Initially I wanted everything to be as "good as" my house. Now I look at as being better than when we camped in a tent

The wobble on the dinette of my first Jayco drove me nuts. I secured it to the wall using hinges and pins. I could still convert the table to a small bed if necessary.

I have the same model and the same issue. What was wrong with the wall hinge everyone used for the last 30 years? That sure seemed easier to me to use than this dual pedestal setup.

Why do the Jayco ones wqobble last trailer didn't. Maybe because its plastic on the floor. Looks like abit of flex there.

Last year I fixed the wobbly table issue (thanks to this Forum). Went to Lowes and bought a garage shelf set up that screwed on the wall, and the other piece screwed under the table. It hooks together in about a 30 degree angle and can still be taken off to make a bed. I then eliminated the leg closest to the wall and moved the other leg's baseplate an inch or so to accommodate the new location.
The table is now as solid as my home table. I leave it up while traveling and really enjoy it's sturdiness.
Sorry I don't have parts numbers but look at Lowes and you'll find it.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

Read my post and boy was I confused! I didn't buy the actual shelf, just the wall plate and the piece you mount on the table. Had to cut to correct length. That stuff is heavy duty "brackets" that you would typically use in your garage or workshop.

Happy RVing,
Jeff

My new 23RB came with the new style table legs. It's the one that will fold down to the dinette seat height to make a bed.

When I saw it in the brochure, I thought it was a great thing. Would even allow me to take it outside. After my up close and personal experience with it, I'd like to throw it out. For me, it's hard to put down, or to raise it up. On top of that, it's heavy as Hades. No way I'll be lugging it outside.

At this time, I'm currently looked at alternative leg solutions, including getting an after market dual pedestal arrangement.

On my 23RB, I can't attach the table to the wall. The bottom of the window is about 6+ inches below the table level.

Thank you all for your ideas. My "de-wobble" quest continues
