Dining Table

On the 2006 Safari slideout I just bought the dining table is tilted up about an inch at the outside edge. I could shorten the leg to fix this, but don't want to until I am sure this is not intended to be this way.

Anyone know about this or am I unique.

I'd check the other end of the table, and make sure nothing has been installed in a different spot than the factory intended, before taking a Sawzall to the longer leg. It's very possible something shifted or was put in upside down or backwards, or the PO performed a "field repair" on it.

Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy, and taste good with ketchup.

Maybe the Mod can move this to the Trailer section, where it will get more replies?

Is it because of the carpeting? Maybe when the carpeting crushes down it will not be that uneven. An inch seems like a lot of difference though. Our table leg was too short by a small amount maybe 1/8-1/4 inch and we glued a piece of wood to the bottom of the leg and it was not noticeable. Maybe you could put a piece of skid cloth in the bracket cup or around the piece that fits into the bracket on the wall to take up some space and raise the table on that side. I would make minor adjustments that are reversible if possible.

I agree, don't shortennit until you check to see if the whole thing has been uninstalled and reinstalled. Part of our dining table is missing and we keep hoping we can find one, so at least yours is there!
