How to Fix a Loose Dinette Table in an RV

The metal posts that go into the metal inserts in both the table and into the floor wiggle so loosely you can hardly stand to try and use it to eat. What is a good remedy to fix this?

ANSWER: Hi Brent, a good temporary solution is to use some Duct Tape on the ends of the poles that go into the floor and the table. This should stop most of the wobbling for the time being.

The best solution that I have found for a loose RV Dinette table is to replace the poles and mounting brackets that go on the table and the floor, which will make the table as good as new.

The best place to get the parts is from eBay. You can get a new pole and table mounting brackets for less then $20.00 plus shipping. Most of the replacement poles and mountings have "Buy It Now" prices so there is no bidding involved.

Installing the new table poles and mounts is fairly straightforward, and in most cases, you should be able to use the existing mounting holes to install the new table hardware.

I hope this helps.

My table comes completely off
by: Anonymous

I've had two different handymen fix my dining table and, within an hour, it pulled back out of the wall completely. What would work as anchors in a motorhome wall?

What causes that problem is traveling with your table up, it is subjested that you take your table down when traveling and then you wont have to replace them.
