Hi,

Trying to make sure we understand where it came apart at to help better. I'm not 100% positive the 95's table attaches like the 2003's and newer ones.

Did it pull out of the sliding track, or the screws come out of the bottom of the table to the slider hardware or other way?

Any pics of what you have will help. Sunline used a lot of the same table mounting hardware across many models. So your problem may not be specific to your floor plan or even model year. Just we do not know what years the hardware may have changed.

John

leave table off

Another option you might consider is to install a pedestal type table that will permanently hold the table in an upright position. That's what we did after getting tired of raising and lowering the table in our t - 1950

Had that happen with mine when I first got it. There are several screws holding the track in place. Take them out so you can drop the track low enough to slide the table "edge fittings" into the end of the track, then screw the track back into place with the table attached.

Not hard at all, unless you're flexibility-challenged. If that's the case, maybe time to call in a teenager.

This is how our 2004 T1950 is. Yours may be close.
Front living area on Flickr

Most likely it came out of the track on the right side. The chair side. OR it just jumped the track in any location.

If you look at the end of the track,(at the chair end, the right side) there may be a small block of wood screwed up from the bottom at the end of the track. That is a track stop. unscrew the screw, take the block down and the end of the track will be exposed. Then slide the table back in the track.

Sunline changed the way they did the track stop over the years, so yours might be a little different. But start looking on the right side where the chair is.

Hope this helps

John

Just as a data point John, in my 1999 model, the stop block is fairly long, but doesn't extend far enough from the wall to reinstall the table that way. The track has to be dropped.

Thanks for the info. Always learn something new and glad too. I recently took out 2 of these tables out in 2 other floor plans. And I did one a long time ago on our prior 2004 T2499. A 2005 T2363 and a 2007 T2499. Those floor plans allowed the same table to slide out the end with the stop block off.

Your message got me curious on my 2004 T1950 which is in a boat load of pieces right now what the setup was as my memory wasn't 100% clear. So I went and had a look. And you are correct, the long stop block is not long enough by itself to allow all 3 table sliding hinges to sneak in the end. H'mm, darn I thought it would, but nope. Seems your 1999 and my 2004 have the same issue.

The 3 sliding hinges on the table can be seen.

And the long stop block that is too short for a direct insertion of the table into the track with all 3 sliding hinges intact.

Now I'm thinking on this. Boy taking that track down is doable, but is there any other way? So I went and looked at my T2499. See here on my 2007 T2499, what I'm pointing out is the sliding hinges. Here there was just enough room to get the table out of the track when the stop block was off.

And the table next to the track. Yup it fit which is how I took it off.

Then as I'm staring at the sliding hinges, they are screwed to the table. H'mm.

Then the light turned on! Ding ding! Lets try this. There appears to be another way short of dropping the track, at least on this vintage. Not sure all the sliding hinges over the years allow this as the hardware has changed. In the 2004 T1950 you can take the long stop block off. That does open up a space, just not long enough to get all 3 sliding hinges in the track.

But, you can remove 1 sliding hinge on the left end of the table. 2 screws in the hinge to remove versus the track. Start by removing the one on the left end sliding hinge. Slide that one loose hinge into the track by itself.

Then take the table with 2 sliding hinges and insert it into the track. There is enough room for 2 hinges in the stop block area as the 3rd location now is not there to interfere with the track.

Then lay on your back or kneel down and put the 2 screws back in the loose sliding hinge and put the long top block back on.

That appears to be an alternative method then dropping the track down and putting it back up. You are still on the ground looking up, but it may be a little easier.

Does that revelation seem to be able to work on your 1999 vintage?

Thanks

John

While it's certainly another way to skin the cat, I'd still opt for dropping the track if I have to do it again. That way, I'm only fiddling with one piece vs two, and reinstalling the track with the table attached isn't difficult.

Nor do I need to worry about any cosmetic issues with removing and reinstalling the stop block, or with a weakened connection of that third hinge due to its removal and re-installation. The latter isn't really a huge concern, but any R&R is seldom as strong as the original install.

Boy does that bring back memories.

OK, I can tell we have come from the same general era and region of the country!!

That cat saying is a classic! There is another cat reference about being busy and a hot tin roof...

My granddaughter threw out some new lingo at me a while back. She said in astonishment "Shut the front door!" H'mm OK, what's up with the front door? Zooooom over my head. Different era, different times, different sayings. I guess I got to get with it.
