Removing front cabinets??? Help!!!

This past Thursday and Friday, we received nine and a half inches of rain in central PA. We were supposed to be camping that weekend, but water coming through the ceiling put an end to that idea. I located the problem on the roof and that is all taken care of. I opened the luan ceiling and have everything dried out up there so now I need to take the front cabinets down, and I am having trouble. I took the screws out holding it to the ceiling, but the bottom back of the cabinets don't want to separate from the front wall. Does anyone know how these are attached? Are they glued or stapled or screwed to the front wall. I can't see anything holding them in, but I don't want to pull too hard and break something. Any help/ advice would be much appreciated.

The screws maybe hidden under the cabinet bottom panel. The are probably installed and then either the interior or exterior paneling is installed on the bottom of the cabinet.

I am confident that they are not glued. I am able to slide a flat screw driver head between the front wall and cabinet, but I cant see any screws or reason why the cabinet won't release. I didn't know if jayco somehow "tongue and grooved" the cabinets into the front wall. I don't even know if that is possible. I will try again tonight and see if I can figure it out. I will keep you all updated. Thank you

I've been studying my rear cabinets (head bangers) above the slide out bed. I think that they attached the 1x1 board to the rear wall with screws and THEN stapled the 3/32 paneling to the inside and outside. When I squeeze the "bottom board" it feels hollow and flexible. If I'm correct, the hollow cavity would hide the screws from view. So my challenge is to figure out how to remove the 3/32 paneling from one side or the other without damaging things.

Welcome to the forum.

There are several members on this site that modify their RVs. Hopefully one of them will be able to help.

The interior bottom is only stapled and you should be able to gingerly pry it up to get to the screws. Did that several times. A little wood putty goes a long way when you put it back.
