Forgot a picture, but my table in my 2014 233s definitely has L-brackets on the bottom. Got side tracked and forgot the picture and to check the top portion for side brackets.

I have this table in my brand new 2011 23RS (sat on the lot for a couple years). This one had nice welds in the places people are putting L brackets so adding L brakcets won't help. It's got more wobble than is good, but I think due to these it's "livable".

After analyzing it a few times it seems that the wobble (on my unit with the welds) is coming from the 2 joints of the folding mechanism. I've wondered if simply stuffing a playing card in each of the joints would reduce the wobble. This is not a high tech solution, but it might work. If that works, One could just put a couple layers of black electrical tape over half of the joint to "tighten" up things a bit. The tape would likely have to be replaced annually or so, but it imght be a simple and invisible fix. I'll test it out and post some pictures if I think it's useful.

Well, I used some electrical tape to try to tighten up the joints, but I found that if I got them too tight the latch wouldn't lock in place. I pulled some back off so I could get it latched and I think it helped a bit, but it's still not as stable as I would like.

At least for now I think we're going to handle it by not filling the cocoa mugs to the top :-). I don't really have any other "fix" ideas other than complete replacement.

Hi, hate to jump in but I do have an unrelated question. Who is the "Roger" and how to I write him? I would LOVE to find a way to tell them about the new design of latches and how they simply will not last. Ours broke when the dealer was showing us how easy they work. Anyone with even a bit of engineering knowledge knows plastic and steel just won't last. It's not bad when two people can close them at the exact same time but one person puts too much pressure on one side. Maybe I should design a steel replacement and sell as a aftermarket...

My 2013 233s Roo developed a wobbly table after just a couple of trips.

I am getting the camper ready for this season and decided to modify the table.
I plan on either getting a friend to weld it or install L brackets.

When I disassembled it I found 2 totally different screws.

The shorter screws were the real wobbly side.

Wrong size and wrong threads.

Nice quality control!!!

Hey everyone we had the same problem..Took it to a friend and we decided to build a weld at the base of the vertical tube and the floor tube. It appears to work. Unfortunately we stored the ROO and haven't had a chance to set it up. But this coming Tuesday July 18th we will have that chance. Coming out to get ready for our next trip. I will post if this idea did work
