converting table to bed

Hi folks,

We purchased our 2011 27 HFS Toyhauler used and subsequently did not get much instruction on things.
This will probably seem like a stupid question, but how do you remove the table and convert the dining table to a bed?
Our table has two legs that seem to just insert into the table top, but yet you cannot remove the table top from the legs. it actually looks like there is a clip that must lock it in place.
At the base of each leg there is a coupler that indicates that turning it counter clockwise opens it , yet when it is turned fully clockwise the leg will still not come out.

Can anyone tell us what we are missing ?

Once you have the table top off and the legs popped, stow the legs and put the table (top up) on the wooden lip that's even with the bottom of the seat cushions. Then you take the back cushions (not the curved corner ones) and position them on the table. Terribly uncomfortable unless you use an eggshell or air mattress.

Also, we found the table leg holes were not centered. Depending on how you put the table back you will have more or less room between the table and seat.

We found the cushions slide around at night, so we use a bungy around the outside cushion to hold it in place, hooking it to the finger hole on the storage compartment everything stays where it should.

The best option for the dinette is to use a blow up twin mattress on top of the cushions once the table is collapsed and cushions are in place. It fits perfectly.

I just took our dinette out. Easy and only took an hour. They finish the slide before installing the dinette so the slide looks great. We didn't need the sleeping space so we're putting recliners in there.

In a related question, I have the same table and TH (27 HFS) and when sitting on the cushions, the table is about (sorry, don't know how else to explain it) nipple high. In other words, the table is sitting up way to high. I'm not sure you can cut the aluminum support poles since each end has specific hardware that either locks it into the floor or snaps into the receivers on the bottom of the table. Anybody out there had the same issue and were you able to remove one or the other pieces of hardware and then shorten the support poles. The hardware appears to be riveted to the support poles at each end. Thanks.
