For those who never convert it to a bed the under table locking lever is a pain so why not remove it?

First remove the table top by removing the 8 screws underneath, two from each of these
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
remove the four screws connecting the plastic leg cover to the table steel base (two shown removed)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Now we have the 17mm nyloc pivot nut and washer to remove (if your table was ever too tight to rotate you can adjust it with this)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Now remove the four socket screws (M5 allen key)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Next lift and slide this along the offending arm to expose where it is attached and remove the two philips screws
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The arm can now be removed and then slid out of the guide hole after removing its rubber end cap.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
The arm locked the pedestal at the selected height previously so now it is removed the table is no longer locked in place and can be depressed under load.
To get around this I noticed this short screw here

Remove and replace with a longer screw

Job done but save the bits for when you sell

i would advice that its not very practical to do that in this country,obviously you were thinking about it to let more natural light in to your motorhome,well apart from the cost,heat will escape far easier through a skylight,and heat is a big player in your motorhome{and it costs money}if you want to do it for visual effect,i would get a photographed stick on one,cost about a tenner.job sorted.
