Little table in front

im trying to drop the little dinette table in the front to make it a bed the table pulls out but how do you get it off the stand to place it on the bench to make a bed ? Leon showed me but now I have forgotten how.

If it's like ours (we also have the 17B), it just lifts off the pedestal, and the pedestal just lifts out of the pedestal base mounted to the floor. Maybe it's just stiff or binding?

We bought our 17B used very recently, & it has the gaucho bunk option which we will have a need for only occasionally, so I took out the bunk/backrest, and we're using throw pillows & cushions in place of the backrest. That left a 6" or so gap at the back of the table, so we had ETI make us a larger replacement table. We kept the original table to use when the bunk/backrest is put back into service. This lets us keep the bed semi-permanently set up in the "regular" dinette area and still leaves us a usable dinette for the early-riser to use while allowing the other the luxury of sleeping late!

I'm also planning on making a shelf which will screw into the glassed-in support boards for the backrest, for extra storage space for keys & other small stuff (this would be just below the window). I had the same arrangement in the Boler, & was happy to see I could duplicate the functionality in the Escape.

if it's really stuck, I would turn the table upside down, put your foot on the table and rotate the leg back and forth while pulling up. The leg comes out of the table top in the same way it comes out of the floor. I hope that helps.

Lift straight up. Hard.

Those dang table poles and bowls are the reason I decided not to get a table in Ten Forward. I don't have the strength to change from dinette to bed. Besides, I have a full time bed...

Kate, once you get it made to a bed, use something slippery on the connections. Don't struggle the next time.

And they're why I decided to remove them and install a gas operated single pedestal. SOOOO much better.

If it stuck to the floor pedestal, just juggle it back and forth and pull up. Darn thing!

I've been following those threads Robert and bookmarked the URLs where to buy. I think you made a very good decision
