I think that's the problem as you can tell,if they were more in line there might be less stress during movement.

Just got off the phone with Jayco and they said after you remove the 3screws the Valance should come right off. What's odd about this is when I try to insert a putty knife I stops about 2" short all the way around but they said no glue,no caulk, nothing just the wood frame and those 3 screws holding it on. Time for my 3 pound hammer now!

They had a "rogue" employee with a bottle of super glue.......

You might be right because I tried again and I think it's on forever. I would literally have to rip it out and I'm not going to do that. I'll just deal with the screws on the right hand side.

Do you think that it might slide up vertically? Maybe some type of hanger bracket or something? Just a thought.

It's not a double screw is it? One to hold the button and then another one below the snap. I've seen those also.

Is it possible that the screws from the outside holding the piston on are all the way through the wall and into the valance?

That's what I was going to ask, you may be right.

I had to take the valance off mine too. My pantry sets in the corner, and its door opens right into the valance - which prevents the pantry door from opening a full 90 degrees. When I installed the slide-out trays in my pantry, they wouldn't slide out until I removed the valance. I just popped off the buttons, removed the screws, and it came right off. Sorry you're having so much trouble with yours.

Have you tried C-3?

On second thought, tie one end of a rope around the valance and the other end around Tunce, then throw a steak across the room. He'll have it off of there in no time!
