Artic Fox rear storage tray removal

I recently purchased an Artic Fox 1150 and i I'm currently making some changes to meet my needs.
One thing i wanted to do is store a pop up screen shelter in the below floor storage compartment that is longer than the tray. Removal of the tray isn't real obvious, but I found an old post about it and thought I'd post it here for reference if anyone else is thinking about it.

To remove it, you pick up the rear of the tray, pull it out about 2 inches, and slide something under it about half way in ( I used a round dowel rod about 1 1/2" x 6 feet long) push down on the outside end to pry up the rear of the tray. The drawer slide has two slots on the top, about 2 inches from the rear, that allows the rollers on the tray to be lifted out of the track so it can be removed. Once lifted, it just pulls out. To reinstall you roll the tray back in on top of the slides until the two wheels fall back into the slots and it's back to normal operation.
Once removed, I cut out the end of the tray to provide more storage length. The basement storage goes all the way to the fresh water tank. Now, there is adequate room for my Gazele screen shelter.

I would exttend the tray. You don't want something poking a hole in your water tank.

Kinda interesting they didn't make the tray as long as possible, but just used some standard one. Typical of RV manufacturers to leave lots of wasted dead space.
