Removed dinette, seatbelt bolt question

I removed the dinette so we could just use chairs in our 2014 Palazzo 36.1. Has anyone removed the 4 seatbelt bolts that are under the dinette? Looking at them, I can get to 2 from the outside with slide extended and the other 2 I think might drop down after removing nut and I can get them from under the slide on the inside. The bolt length does have me concerned though since the gap between the floor and bottom of the slide is not a lot. If you have done this would you care to share your experience?

I also wonder if they might be structural Click image for larger version

Use one of these and cut off the head, remove the brace then cut the bolt off. Just be careful of sparks, so put some cardboard or other material to protect the surrounding area.
Unless you (or a friend) have one already, I bought this one from Harbor Freight and works great. You will be amazed how many uses you will get out of this cheap tool.
