Time to revisit the crappy kitchen table. Anyone have any new "fix-it" solutions?

I went all-in with corner brackets and self tapping screws. Reduced the wobble quite a bit, but the only way to eliminate it 100% would be to either replace the legs, or brace up each fold point so they can't move side-to-side (which would then make it impossible to collapse the table, so not exactly ideal). I considered a threaded rod from one of the legs up to the bottom of the table, to put tension on it and reduce the wobble, but decided it would just be too dumb looking.

Don't trash your tables yet

Just did our walk thru on our new '13 23SS. Thank you so much for the PDI checklist as it was fully utilized. The first thing I noticed was the table. Very wobbly!!!! The service manager said all of the, come like that and they don't understand why, but..... They developed a fix. They do a bead welded on each side while the table is level and that fixes it. A service tech did it while we were doing the rest of the walk thru. It made the table very sturdy. We aren't picking up the TT until Saturday morning so I will have to wait until then to take a picture.

Side question, are the '13's the first models to come with the fantastic fan "ultra breeze" covers? Both vents are the fantastic fan but the bathroom had the full cover like a Maxair but labelled "ultra breeze". I was expecting to have to add a couple Maxair covers to both but was surprised one was already equipped with the "ultra breeze". I had them add another "ultra breeze" cover to the front one too. These covers are made by fantastic fan.

Welcome to the 23SS club. The ultra breezes came late in the 2013 model. When we bought ours in September it did not come with them.

Ditto, mine came with the rear, I had to buy & install the front one. Manufactured Dec '12.

Holding off on the L-brackets until I see your pics. May do something really overkill like force but bead welds may be a better solution.

A weld is a good idea. I'd probably burn right through that thin steel with my welding skills though

I think I'll hit my bottom brackets up with some black paint to disguise them a bit.

Ok pictures will have to wait. The tech didn't do it right as the weld snapped on our first night of driveway camping. I was looking at it more and I want the service manager to do it instead of the tech.

We are putting together a list of mini fixes for the dealership. Table, bathroom fantastic fan, one running light and a gouge forming on the floor from the right side of the slide when the slide is brought in.

I did make some home made chalks. Thank you to all that helped with posting theirs on the site. $8 in materials and 2 recycled stickers from Home Depot (free). Completely removed the front to back shake.

Homemade wheel chalks

So easy to make. If you own a 23SS I will make them for you.

We have the wobbly table in our Surveyor Sport 220. Since it's only the two of us, we removed table completely and replaced it with two small folding tables. Actually works better for us. They are lightweight, easy to move and use for different things and fold up very small.
