Morning... We just purchased a used RV. The dinette table is located on a slide. It's on 2 pedestals. One is obviously not attached to the floor well. The table is very wobbly. How do we fix this situation?

Remove the base
Get a length of wooden dowel.....3/8" should work
Drill out existing screw holes to accept the dowel (one drill size smaller then dowel)
Cut some 1" lengths ...wood glue/pound dowels into the screw holes...cut flush with floor
Reinstall base...using existing screws...drill small pilot hole first into dowel


Is it time for your medication or mine?

OP, mine has been wobbly since purchased new. Even with the mounts solidly attached, it's not a great system. I've been toying with the idea of changing the way it mounts. With a 4 and 6 year old eating at the table and leaning on the table and spilling drinks all the time it gets annoying.
