How did you fix the holes in the vinyl?

The issues and fixes posted in this thread are related to an escape 19 with a table that is very difficult to raise and lower with the oe pedestal system.. It is heavy and akward to manipulate. The probability of injury to the owner, floor,vinyl wall, and cabinets is high. Maybe not so with the 15A.

When I installed a pedestal in our 17, I used a colored caulk from Ace. Seemed to work and provided a nice waterproof seal.

I was referring to the larger 4-person table in my 15 which I believe is of a similar (if not the exact same) size as that in the 19. I don't use it as a bed so don't have to fight putting it up and down, but other people seem to manage that very well. I do not think it is a horrible table and simply didn't want newbies to think they now have to spend a lot of money on a different table system. I don't have a problem with it being too wobbly but then I get up from the table using my own legs, not the table for support.

Edited: If I did have to make up a bed on a daily basis, I would have ordered the other table which is held by a cleat to the wall and then lowered to the bed position on hinges.
