We have trouble folding the leg to the table when lowering it to make the dinette into a bed. We managed to fold it, but it bent some of the hinge in doing so. Anyone else have trouble with this?

I have the same issue. I ended up using a screw driver to walk the tabs over.
Figured there must be a trick i dont know about.

Stopped by our local Retro dealer yesterday. The salesman demonstrated how the table folds on one of their trailers. It worked fine. It seems the spring in ours is much tighter. We might try some WD40.

I have the same problem. It was obvious that if I forced it, it would break. I use a pair of channel locks to pull the little clip down before folding. I think I'm eventually going to make a new table top, slightly smaller and narrower to make it easier to get in and out of the seats. I'll save the original top for if I want to make a bed.

We had the same problem....and both tabs bent over. We straightened them back with a pair of pliers, but discovered the retracting spring is very heavy, especially in cold weather. Our dealer ordered a new folding table bracket, waiting for it to arrive.

We tried WD40, and it has helped. The hinge is not designed very well!

my problem with the single dinette leg is that when the table was moved side to side if the leg drags it put pressure on the support/mounting blocks underneath and pulled the support staples out. am looking for a more substantial manner of attaching the supports to the table. 2015 155xl
