Without a multi-tool or some other way to get between the wall and the cabinet to physically cut the screw off, this thing ain't coming down. I don't know if Forest River hangs all the cabinets this way but this back unit is.

Looks like someone is going to learn to live with it.
I doubt screws from the outside, but there might be some spots with adhesive on the support boards. I would take a putty knife and start all around the support boards.

I have used the putty knife and I can fit it all the way around except in one spot when I hit something metal.

Tomorrow I plan to attempt using a sawzall in there and see if it will scratch whatever is holding it up there. The multi-tool didn't do anything to it but, it's something metal in there for sure.

I guess we'll find out.

Sounds like you're butchering your new rv

I removed the dinette from one that I had. There were a couple screws that went in from the out side. Not the way I would have built it..but. Be prepared to wall paper, panel or add trim to cover the holes in wall from the screws you need to remove..

Cut the top three inches off the top of your bed frame. Snap a line and go at it with a circular saw. Why tear into your nice cabinetry.

Sounds like most folks on here are certainly Pro-Cabnetry.

After running into the metal anchors from the outside I sort of threw in the towel on the project.
We never planned to butcher the cabinets but simply take them down and take them to my cabinet builder friend to re-design them and re-install them.
Sounded so easy. We had no idea it would turn into a near total bedroom remodel project.

I'm going to look at the lowering the bed idea, the main electrical is under the bed so I'm not sure if that's even possible but if it is, that's a good idea.
