In less than 2,000 actual miles I pulled the new 2015 23D International Serenity (it was trucked to the dealership), the dinette leg had worn through the really thin (cheap) factory linoleum. The factory flooring is being replaced with Marmoleum like we did in the Classic along with a 0.064" x 2" x 4" brass wear plate under the dinette leg.

So far, both of the dinette tables have remained attached to the wall when underway.

We have not been on the road with these modifications yet.
Couldn't get the photo to upload yesterday, here we go:

Ditto -- it takes a few extra minutes, but table down -- sink covers stowed -- is SOP when we hit the road.

If you had a picture of that, I would like to do the same. Our table has gotten kind of sloppy, and it's annoying when trying to do any type of writing.

I don't have a picture and won't be visiting the trailer for a while. But a picture won't show much....the rubber pieces are behind the metal tab.

By the way, the table has stayed stable since the changes. We've only taken it down once, when we needed to roll back the flooring to dry out after a leak.
