Default Travel with table up or down?

I am getting ready for about a 7,000 mile road trip from Florida to Washington, down the Pacific coast and back east. My previous camper had a folding table which had to be secured. This camper has the two pole mount and then then lowers to sit on a lip on the dining room bench to make a bed.

When traveling should I leave the table in the up position on the posts or lower it? It seems to me that the table will have a lot of movement as we bounce down the road and will eventually work loose.

Default Up

We have gone for thousands of miles with the table up -- the pedestals have never worked loose. We store stuff under the table while in transit.

My dealer told me when I took delivery of my new 189FDS a couple of months ago that I could travel with the table up. So far, so good.
