Dinette table mod question

We have a new 274dbh. When sitting at the dinette table it rocks back and forth every time you touch it. I cannot see anyway to adjust it. Any ideas on a mod to get it more sturdy?

Do a search for dinette mods. There are lots of ideas. I think for yours with the 2 removable posts, someone added a 3rd post to form a triangular post arrangement for more stability.

I'm going to add a 3rd leg to see if that helps

My dinette isn't the U shape. If just has a bench on each side with the square table. I don't really have room for a third leg

I removed the two table legs that came with my unit and replaced them with these Sequoia Table Legs from Camping World:

Quite the improvement!

Did the sequoia legs require additional drilling in the floor or did they fit in the factory spots? Here my current setup that wobbles a lot. Click image for larger version

I put the new floor pieces over the existing holes and they covered them for the most part. I didn't use the exact same screw holes because I wanted to ensure a tight fitting for the new brackets. The flooring around the few holes that didn't get covered were flattened with my hammer (strategic taps) and are not noticeable at all. Even when I went back to it and tried looking for them. I have a vinyl type flooring and it responded well to my hammer :-)

How about one in the front like factory and 1 in each corner next to the wall? That way the added posts would be out of the way.

Don't know if anyone is interested but I have a pair of the Sequoia Leg systems for sale if you want to check it out over in my thread in the For Sale section:

For Sale: Sequoia Table Leg System

I had these installed in a TT (only was out in the TT for 3 nights after installing)and they worked great....very stable....only reason I have them now is that shortly after installing them we traded our TT for a 5th wheel and I took them out before we traded....didn't make any difference with the dealer whether they were in there or not....so I put back what had come from factory before letting the nice Sequoia sets go.....like new!!!

When I installed my sequoia legs I was doing it on carpet whereas you were on vinyl flooring......even on carpet the legs locked down very tight and secure...the design of the flush floor plate and the locking mechanism with the tightened collar gave the table a secure fit...no more stumping toes getting in and out of the dinette area either.

I have some rocking in my dinette table but it is not bad enough for me to go to the expense of new posts. What I am thinking about doing is adding a horizonal board on the wall for the table to rest on. Like a ledger board. What do you think?

Found them rolling uphill in Goshen last year along with a set of landing jacks I had to re-work to get to work smoothly.

Just an fyi the fr tech that replaced our table top, legs and sockets last year @ goshen said you have to place a 2x4 on too of legs and beat them into the socket and he did just that!
