How do you remove the Valance over the front door ?

Staying tuned to this thread as the suspense is killing me. Good luck TTT!

Well finely got the correct answer on my VIN Hybrid and low and behold because if your ever experiencing an earth quake " hold on to that sucker"!
There are 3 locator pins for proper placement and a quick grip construction adhesive to hold it in place until the 3 beauty buttons can be applied.
"Tunces" can it be removed ?
"Jayco" probably not without damaging the Valance or the wall behind or slightly around it.

Valance is staying for now.

My hitch and tow bar are not built like that.

I mean, how much does a valance weigh?

Agreed, we get the big one, I'm hiding under the nearest valance.

Ya know, I've been all over this thing and I think Jayco builds a very fine unit and I'm very happy with every aspect of this home away from home but that Valance really belongs in an assault tank. Jayco really dug deep to go back to 2010 to help me and my hats off to them, I won't hesitate to buy from them again.
Hitch Pin, the locater pins are steel so I'll need a hack saw 32teeth per inch for this one.

I winter in California .. and since RV's are made to shake rattle and roll down the highway they should be a safe place to stay in during an earthquake.. when one hits my area I figure the safest place to be is in bed...

They must not know that they make Wood Dowel Pins.

You may be able to loosen that adhesive with a heat gun but then I'd be concerned about the Wall paper stuff on the walls bubbling up if it got too hot.

Maybe direct the heat gun towards a spatula and let the heat travel down the metal to the contact point. It's how I remove vinyl flooring and old construction caulking from around outdoor windows.

Sounds like a good idea but at this point I'm calling it quits on this project. Time to spend more time with The Tunce so I'm taking her to Artist Point at Mt. Baker to play in the snow tomorrow. Next month were going to Mt. Shasta for more snow and then to Pismo Beach for a month of sun and sand.
