    Hi Wile-c and welcome :thumb: I am a joiner :thumb:Yes plugging and screwing will work or even try injecting epoxy then plugs and screws :thumb: You only bought it yesterday so why not phone the dealer up to see if they will supply a new table top ? you do not say how old it is but it is worth asking for a new one before the repair.I understand that it will cost more to take it back for them to make the same type repair :thumb::Rofl1::Wink:

    hi and welcome to the site.
    sounds like the first trip out is back to the dealers for a new table. As to forgetting the handover details that just shows the wisdom of making a video recording of everything, so when you go back take a camera and have them explain everything again, with particular attention to where batteries are position of switches to charge leisure and or engine battery. Drain down instructions for the water tank and pump. Position of any fuses also.
    Other than that enjoy, make a trip of it. Stay out over the weekend and see what other problems you find before travelling back home.
