I am in the process of removing my Hymer table.

I have unscrewed the four bolts but table doesn’t want to budge. Are they glued in place as well as bolted?

I intend to look under the flooring next?

I removed ours... wasn't stuck. Just bolted...I imagine yours is a tight fit...try pulling directly upwards with a slight knock...Good luck fellow Hymer Owner...

Took the table out in my Hymer a couple of months back, just had give it a bit of a hard push once the bolts were out.

There has been a lot of chat lately by me and others about this. Try introducing a rigid scraper under the table base. I did it this way without damaging the floor in any way. The scraper was "introduced" with a mallet!

I have given the table a knock previously and nothing happened. I will give this a go. Thanks

I am still not having any luck removing the table. I have tried knocking a scraper between bottom plate and floor but no luck.

Any more ideas?

Thanks

I used a bit of heat, hairdryer around the base then a good shove.
That sounds like a very good idea.

A few questions. Is your scraper reasonably wide? Did you get the scraper well in? Have you tried piggy-backing a second scraper next to the first? My base did not budge until I did that. Perhaps a combination of Detnor's technique and a scraper might work. I didn't say it was easy! My concern was damaging the floor but, apart from the slight dent caused when I tried levering it up, there was no damage at all. Your flooring might be better quality than our Pilote too. Good luck.

Thank you all for your advice. The hairdryer trick worked but it took a good 10 minutes to warm it up. The boss is happy. Just need a blanking plate now.

It sounded like a good idea straight away. Pleased that it worked for you and that the better half is happy. Did it leave a location hole in the floor or just the screw holes? Ours left a circular patch of floor a somewhat different colour after being hidden from light for years and the 6 screw holes.

Unfortunately, there are four bolt holes and the area is slightly discoloured. I will either have a blanking plate made up or place a mat over the area. Tonnes more room now the table is out.

Long time
We had the table ‘chopped‘ in our B584 so now the leg lives in the wardrobe and the table hinges from the side shelf.
Cant imagine how we managed before!
