How to lower dinette table

Hello I have a 2012 Rockwood 2601s. I was trying to lower my dinette table to set up the bed but I am having trouble trying to figure out how to lower the table.
Also the top of the table wobble is this a defected table or something I have to live with.

I'm still figuring out the ins and outs of the table myself, I just keep messing with it til it does what I want ~ not much help, sorry.

As for the wobble, lots of discussion about that on here, do a search as several folks have found some fixes that seem to work for them.

They wobble.... I pretty much live with it. Maybe there is something that can be done but I haven't taken the time to figure it out.

As for height, you can buy shorter/longer steel "legs" at Camping World or similar. I bought short ones and then used 3/4" plywood squares screwed to the underside of the table to get the height I wanted. It made the table top a bit heavy but at least it's the right height now.

Release yellow button and it goes down in a kind of z pattern.

There is a latch with a spring beside the yellow button. When you release the latch the table collapses sideways like a camel going down, lol. It wobbles due to the multiple joints. If you get fed up you can always do what we did, but we don't need it as a bed.

Yes, that is exactly correct. May I add, it moves easily so if you're having trouble, stop, you're doing it wrong.
Set the table on its window side edge. Look at the leg now closest to the floor. Move the yellow pin out to release the catch. Grasp the cross bar closest to you and pull up. It will pivot into the table's bottom.
We do this with the table resting on the ledges on the dinette benches so the table goes from bed to table without having to be moved much at all. When you do it once, you'll have that "Aha!" moment.
