CT13 - I'm new here, perhaps this has been covered before. The base our our pedestal table broke where the cup meets the flat floor piece. The worst case would have been for it to fall
through while travelling - damage, even an accident is possible.
I noticed the new part (Camping World #T01 7872) has extra braces at this junction. We also don't intend to travel with the pedestal in.
I lowered the tongue to raise the rear for easier entry. I caulked inside the hole while I had it open. It's a two person job but not difficult. Maybe other campers have a similar weak part.
