Collapsible Dinette Table

I assume as with many of the Roo/Shamrocks the dinette table is collapsible. My table legs have two hinges on each leg. When I release a catch the legs accordion up so the table becomes part of the base for an extra bed. The problem is that when the table is up-right the hinges are slightly loose which allows the table to rock at the hinge joints. The hinges are welded to the table legs and cannot be adjusted. Does anyone else have this issue and any fixes?

I have the same table base and the table is very steady when it is up. Right after I got the trailer the weld broke loose. CW contacted FR and they sent a whole new set of legs. I find the table is very hard to raise. It is so heavy. 2015 Roo 23ikss.

These tables are !@##$. There are lots of threads on this problem. Here's just one of them:

dinette table legs

Do a search on Table leg mod and you'll get a lot more. Some folks have gone to the vertical tube supports instead of the table legs.

I've got that collapsable table as well in a 2016 Super V. Interesting mechanism, no doubt. Needed a little WD-40 on the movable joints to loosen it up. Yellow release button failed and pulled out needing replacement. Button will be tricky to reengineer with so little clearance behind the lever to leg

if I had to sum these tables up with one word, I would use "Junk"

If you have this leg mechanism, word of advice, do not travel with the table in the upright position.
