attaching fold-out table

Hi y'all - it's not obvious to me how this table and hinge works, hoping someone can give me a push in the right direction. So I have an original fold-out table in great shape...and I have (obviously) a metal piece that attaches to the wall and the table is then attached to that metal piece. But I can't quite figure out how if I fold the table down the hinge is supposed to stay attached in the metal piece that goes on the wall. It just slides right out. I can put blocks on either side to keep it from moving side to side...I'm clearly missing how this goes together. Pics attached.

you slide the table onto the wall piece. It will stay on there when you pull the table out enough to open it up. When down it slides in alongside the gaucho...

thanks...but...I don't have the gaucho.., and when I set the table in the wall hinge in a way that seems to fit, and then unfold it, it just sits on the wall piece without feeling very attached or stable. it's easy to put blocks on the ends and stop it sliding side to side, but it can very easily slide out and forward. that's why I'm wondering if I'm not seating it correctly or is that just the way it works?

it should slide over the little lip. It is usually somewhat stable and won't slide but I don't leave mine opened up when traveling.

hmmmm. there must be something wrong still because it's about as stable upright as a toddler learning to walk. I can't even leave it up when I'm parked. If I breathe on it too hard, it just slides right out the front and dinner falls on the floor. I know that the leg is good and the whole trailer is level. I just find it hard to believe that as well constructed as the rest of the airstream is that the table would be so poorly designed...the whole table resting on a 1/4 lip? It's got to be user error!! I'm about to either chuck the thing or attached it permanently to the wall.

Are you sliding it in between the wood slat and the metal lip?
