Dinette table won't go down

I have a 2017 25' Flying Cloud. We are trying it out with the dinette table down(to try to find a comfortable seating arrangement). The table is VERY hard to get into the down position. Dear Hubby is busy and I can't get it down. The brackets don't slide out on the wall. What will help? Is this normal? Thanks.

Leslie

Are you lifting up on the edge of the table (the edge opposite the wall, closest to the leg? That should cause the tabs to slide out of the brackets. Then pull forward to allow the table to swing down.

Yes, I am pulling up on the edge nearest me after the table leg has been stowed. Left tab almost slides out, right one doesn't budge. Am I just not strong enough? Or is this defective?

All I can suggest is to wiggle the table back and forth (side to side slightly) while lifting carefully, and/or also push on it slightly while lifting, especially on the right side to take tension off that right tab. If not, try gently pulling as you lift up--it really depends on if your tabs are tight on the front or the back side. Sounds like you have a tight fit, which actually is a good thing. Some people have had their tables unhook and crash down on bumpy roads. A tight fit will help prevent that.

If you haven't done it before, it will be hard. Once you do it a few times, the opening slit, will open up a little more making the process easier.

I thought I was going to rip the brackets off the wall.

Here are the steps.
1. Fold the leg
2. Lift up the closest part of the table
3. Slightly pull towards you, very slightly
4. Once the brackets are off the mounts, pull a little more towards you


Viola!
