What's behind the false wall?

I'm curious if anyone has pulled out the false backs of the second and third shelves of the pantry to the right of the sink on their 233s. I found tons of room in the outside back storage area by removing the barriers to the left and right, which were just hiding water pipes and wiring. These panels, however, are finish-nailed in place, not screwed like the others, so it would be difficult to put them back after removing.

many of us pull out the thin wood dividers that prevent using a lot of cabinet space.
it's pretty common in a lot of RV's, not just hybrids.

i pulled all of them out of our 23SS's cabinets, based on what i had read on other Hybrid forums, back in 2006 when we bought ours.

I do not understand what wall you are both talking about. Is it the same wall to right of sink where the tall pantry/cabinet is? I am not sure how or why I would remove this cause that is where my control panel and thermostat is mounted.

Pictures speak words. :-)

i believe the OP is talking about the wood veneer dividers that are usually screwed down with one or two screws, to cover wires/lines that could be damaged if you just threw stuff in there.
our bathroom vanity had one that really cut down the storage area.
i took it out, along with the ones in the rear storage area, the storage areas under the closet, the front storage area and a couple of other places.

Pop 'em out!!!
I cut the ends of the benches out with a utility knife.




Also have a place to keep lightweight bulk stuff in the bathroom.

We have a 2010 233S and I remember that I removed one of these barriers on one of the shelves of the pantry to give me room to put in a shelf. As I remember they are put in on an angle. The are covering the vent pipe for the kitchen sink as I remember & maybe some wiring. The are just put in with brad nails so werent't hard to remove. It was a bigger pain to rebuild a boxed enclosure that did the same job. As I remember I only did the one shelf.

Oh, yeah I ditched those things too. Way to flimsy.

All mine were gone in short order. Gained sooooo much new storage space. Re-purposed those false walls to help make new matching shelves and bulkheads/boxes to cover up water lines and wiring.
