The "wiggly" "wobbly" fold down table.....

Has anyone come to a happy solution on this aggravating thing? I googled it and most all posts I found here or otherwise were all from around 2013 or older. Our trailer is a 2015 and apparently 5 years of complaining wasn't enough to make FR come to a good solution. I see the 2016 version of our trailer went back to the 2 leg style and ditched the folding base. With a baby on the way we want to fix the spillmaster 5000. Trailer is at the dealer now, will see what they come up with, just looking to see here if FR was able to make anyone happy with this in recent history?

Do you have a picture of the table and mechanism?

I do not. It is the same base as the table depicted in this 2015 Rockwood brochure pdf.

www.forestriverinc.com/brochures/.../2015roobrochure.pdf


The wobble is coming from the pivot points on the legs. Not much I can see to do and still have it fold.

That's the same one we have. Something like this
V-40 - SNAP 2 Folding Table Base - Price: $69.00 - Factory RV Surplus - 1611 W Bristol St, Elkhart, IN 46514 (800) 325-1461 (574) 262-3327

Ours wiggles at the bottom hinge point, otherwise it's fairly solid. We have the U-shaped dinette so we can't secure it to the wall as some members have done.

I've seen several posts here with potential solutions. Try searching "wobbly table".

I recall a thread about a table that would shake like crazy.

Owners fix was something like this.

My table faces the other direction, but adding a 3rd leg solved my wobbly table issue. It's very stable now.

Ours is also a u dinette and oriented like yours. I'm hoping FR will admit fault and switch it out to 2 legs like yours was. If I'm still not happy I can add the 3rd leg. Or I can just get them to do 3 legs from the start. The 16 they have on the lot is 2 legs again, the folding mechanism is gone. FR has been good so far with dealing with issues, so we will see. Appointment is Wednesday, hope to know more by then.

Dave961, what brand legs are those? I've only seen the tapered drop in ones before..........those look like they twist and lock, which I can see adding the 3rd would really help.

For those saying search I have, but was looking more for anyone that got a resolve from FR. Most posts I found were attempts and fixes by owners themselves.

Good, bad or indifferent the owners fix is generally better than the factories.

3 legs + 3 pairs of legs = too many legs!

I do agree with that. Because they're the people that have to live with it. Just trying see if anyone had FR make an attempt, other than swapping the base for another one that wasn't any better.

From what I've found it looks like 3 fixed legs are the way to go. I just want to be educated so when they call me with a "plan" I can counter an educated demand.

Dave961, are those legs Sequoia? Looks like they are from the design and what I can see of the sticker now. Right now my demand looks like it's going to be 3 Sequoia legs and the folding base goes in the scrap dumpster. The folding base isn't important to me.
