How do you remove the Valance over the front door ?

I removed the 3 screws that appear to hold it on but it won't come off the wall. I tried to pull it off but didn't want to break it,I pushed up on both sides even with taping it with my hand and nothing. Put a putty knife behind it to try and feel other hidden attachments but nothing.

Thanks for your help, Tunce

They use industrial velcro to hold items like that at times and that stuff is hard to seperate. Not sure if that is the case here or not.

OK, I'll give it a more powerful pull and see if that does it.
This is my problem, I have that plunger on top of my door and after about 20 days of use the screws start pulling out and the ends work their way off. Today I drilled through the door for the left hand bracket and used (3) 10/32x2" sst bolts and nuts and that's all good but I still need to do that right side.
When it works it works good,just open the door and it opens up 90deg. and out you go. This was standard in my unit..

See those 3 decorative buttons? GENTLY pop them off and you will see the screws that hold that piece to the wall. A large flat tipped screwdriver will work but dont put it in too far. Just at the edge..

I guess they are one and the same.

I'm at the point of using a bomb! The 3 screws are out and I'm really pulling on that thing and it's bending , must be glued to the wall. I put the putty knife on the left lower edge and then put the hammer to it and that sucker is still on there. Looks like a call to Jayco and hope they don't tell me (Liquid Nail).

Sorry Triple T, but this is getting both weird, and interesting.

They put quite the angle of dangle on that gas charged cylinder didn't they?
