Folding table

Hi everyone
I have a flagstaff 25 bds 2019. I was able to get the table down for traveling and canít figure out how to get it back up. Weíre on our 1st trip and this seems to be the issue so far.
Fingers crossed.
Thank you

It's only a crap shot, but feel or look under the table if there is a latch that keeps it locked in the low position.

I turned it upside down and rotated 4 times. Iím sure itís a simple procedure but when your looking at 70 it makes u wonder. Thanks for the try

if you have the same table that I have in my Flagstaff hybrid - my table swings out and then up into place. I usually place my feet on the table stand feet to keep them stationary as I swing the table top into place (it is a push the table top out then pull up into place). There should be a yellow capped locking mechanism under the table - the leg that the lock is on is the side that the table swings away from. The lock has to be released to lower the table.

If it's like ours, it's a yellow plastic latch that needs to be pressed and swung sideways. I have to rack my brain to remember every time I've got to open it because it's the craziest design I've ever seen.

Ok I figured it out. By pulling the lower frame away from top in the length of table,by some magical occurrence it rose up.
Thanks to all that gave it some thought.
Definitely a wired setup.

At least mudman2 was able to get the table lowered; I haven't even been able to do that. I see the little latch with the yellow button, but it isn't latched to anything. I have tried pushing/pulling in every direction I can think of (in 3 dimensions at least), and nothing happens.

There are two screws holding what looks like the reverse of the latch with the yellow button directly to the left of the yellow button latch. Is it what it is supposed to latch to? If that is the case, my table must be made wrong because there is no way the "yellow button" latch can reach the other part.

Why would anyone design something this difficult?

If it's the same as mine.wd40 the pivot points 1st. From the rest position, lift the front of the table about 45 degrees, slide yellow button to side and lower legs and lock. Rotate table up and onto legs. To lower, slide yellow button1 ,pull table towards you. As it starts to collapse, push toward wall and guide to place on bosses between bench

Jeff64, thank you! I lubricated all the joints, and I was able to "wrestle" the table into the lowered position and raise it up again. However, it is very easy to tip. It's not that the joints are "wiggly" as described in some other posts about the table, but if you put any pressure on one side of the table, it tips very easily. My wife and I have discussed it, and we are going to take it out of the trailer, store it, and buy two smaller "personal" tables as others have done. We have no need for the extra bed as there are just the two of us with two cats and two dogs. so that won't be any loss.

We just got back from our first outing in our trailer and I wrestled with the table as well. I just found that I think helps to show the direction to push/pull in.
