Removing 2x4 for sliding doors

Hey all, I have a 2016 Wildwood 31KQBTS that Iím trying to remove the complete sliding door assembly for the bedroom. I was able to get both doors off and remove the bracket that is screwed in. I got the trim off in one piece facing the bedroom. However, Iím stuck with the 2x4 that the doors were attached to. It wonít budge at all. Has anyone tackled this before? I need this 2x4 gone!! Any help is much appreciated. Click image for larger version

It is separate - I was able to take a plastic spatula and run it across the top of the board, there is nothing connecting it to the ceiling. It is screwed in from the outside on the left and the right. I was able to use a recip saw to cut the left section off, where I found the screw. In the center of the entertainment center, the 2x4 was stapled, I was able to get those loose with the spatula. It is stuck on the far left and far right sides of the entertainment center. I think it could be glued, and I'm going to try to get it with a hammer and chisel when I get home.

Ceiling patch

I was able to get the 2x4 off - I had to use a trim puller. There is 4 screws total, 2 coming from the ends of the entertainment center, and 2 on the ends of the 2x4. I will just cut the ends of the screws off with some nippers. But I did nick the ceiling in the process. Is there something you recommend specifically to patch the ceiling? See photos. Thanks, Michael

Touch the holes up with a little latex caulk and they will disappear
