How do you lower this kitchen table?

Help!

A new trailer (to us) and I cant figure out how to lower the kitchen table to make a bed.

I tried pulling straight up but was worried I would break it because nothing seemed to want to move.

Thanks!

I wouldn't be afraid to try to tap upward with a rubber mallet, first one end, then the other.

X2, the longer the table is up and the more times it's used the tighter the tapered tubes will be set into the mounts , wiggle , twist and shout; and it that fails , go with the rubber mallet.

The posts will fit tight because you don't want them to fall out while in transit, or just sitting there for that matter.
However, where would the table top go to make the bed surface? It could be just the angle the picture is taken from, but it looks like the table top isn't large enough to fill the gap between the booths. Perhaps measuring it would be in order, just to make sure it will work before you fight it to take it apart.

I've got one of those... and have to fight it from time to time... they are very sturdy... don't worry about breaking it. Might help to use some graphite on the tubes before you make the table up again... might not... I just use muscle.( not always mine... sometimes, I demand forced labor of hubby to help)

sd75mac...(Harold and Cynde) meant wiggle the table not yourself, although that happens too...

Yeah, a little body movement coincides with wiggling the table plus it adds some umpf!!

Smack it up with your hands or wiggle it back and forth. Sometimes those things are a tight fight. My folks had a pop up back in the day with one and those pipes were a pain sometimes.

The fun part is what comes out first.....the leg from the floor, or the table! LOL
They can be tight. One note, you have the aluminum post support..mine failed after two years (cracked). The table wobbled badly after that.... I replaced with hard plastic one, and we don't leave the table attached when towing.

I would get under it and put my back into it. Or the scissor jack from the car.

I like the hammer method, however, be sure to hit on the metal flange rather than the table top.

PB Blaster, wiggle, and rubber mallet if needed . Spray the fitting, if time allows, do it for a few days. A hardware man all my life and PB Blaster is the best penetrate around !! Warn ya, it stinks !!! Cover carpet !
