I was thinking about taking my posts out and put a bracket on the wall and let it fold down when I needed to. Like HAAR we never use it for a bed either. I just wonder if I should just leave it alone. the DW thinks so. I might have to tell her she is right, nah I just changed my mind.hehe

The factory did just that with my 270ret couch. They used 3" screws to install the couch. When the slide came in, the screws cut the carpet. I had to sent the unit back to the factory, to get re-carpeted and install a new bottom slide seal. So check those screws !!!!!

Can you confirm if the slideout floor is Eternabond like the "main floors"?

If so, then how do you secure the table to the floor when there is only 1/4" of plywood (and 1.5" of foam). As you see above, my table has already detached itself.

If not, what it is it made from?

Your suggestion to check if 1" screws have penetrated the slideout floor has me confused.

I did a check the underside of the slide after I did it and could not see an issue looking from the bottom. One thing I can say is that the screws went in very tight and did not not try to strip out once tightened. I was very careful not to over torq the screws. I am comfortable that I have done no damage, now lets see how she holds up.
I will give a report over time.

All I can say now, is I appreciate Prime times effort to make a flexible table unit that can be moved a repurposed, but the frame work was a little to bulky for practical dining table use, for us. This modification is great for us and our use.
