Any recommendations ...should we lean on the table when we go to check it out and have the dealer switch out the hinges?
Like I said earlier, there has been quite a bit of discussion on this type of table, opinions and each camper personal experience varying from perfectly happy to not acceptable. We fall somewhere in between.
So I can only speak of our experience: yes the 2702SS came with the scissor type folding table but no, the problem wasn't a bent hinge(s) or anything else malfunctioning, it was just (in my opinion) a poor design in the latching mechanism that holds the three parts together when in the upright position. Whenever we leaned on the table it just wobble side to side. We never reported it to the dealer so I don't know what they would/could have done. However, since we don't plan on using the dinette table as a bed I just made the table permanently upright by attaching metal plates where it would have normally folded, problem solved!
Here a the two other threads where the table issue is discussed:
