front overhead cabinet

Anyone ever pull their overhead cabinet? I could use a tip on getting it out. I have both sides off, visors speakers & liner under the cabinet off. Thanks

Like the guy at the auto parts store asks , "Year , Make & Model".

OK so it's a '98 31' Land Yacht. What trim level ? A picture would really help here.

This will get you the right answer.

Over the years AS front overhead cabinets have been anything from none to molded into the front end cap.

So here's a photo, if I did it right. Umm..Glenritas? I'm posted in MoHomes, so I don't think the rest applies. I believe your thinking of trailers. Thanks Gary

This is not a helpful reply, just curious as to why you are taking the cabinets down!

water leaked in that area on prior owner. I'm making a new liner under the cabinet,I want to clean out the area seal it & treat & paint the metal. I may have to pull down the headliner to pull them.

Thank you and good luck with your project. Post pictures if you like, I'm sure you aren't the only one dealing with PO neglect!

I have had my liner out before and don't recall that that would aid in removing the cabinets. I haven't tried removing the front overheads but I'm thinking there is a metal boxed frame with the Oak front fascia attached. Did the bottom panel come down with just removing the bottom screws?

Yeah I removed the visors, map lite & the bottom vynal . there is a metal (rusty) sheet metal 1/4" thick under the cabinet Above the metal & behind the cabinet there is pink insulation. There were 4 wood screws inside each of the 2 cabinets. Something is holding them in. I'm almost afraid to see behind them.

I took everything down I'll compose the order in which I did it and probably send pictures. Took about an hour and a half. Was able to put everything back in perfect order. Did replace the horizontal Decorative panel. This was on a 2003. 30 foot land yacht motorhome.

Just a quick note. We have two decorative sides that must be removed to remove the cabinet. Sorry I forgot you did not mention taking down the curtains. They must be removed. The metal curtain rods must be removed also. You mentioned loosening the wooden cabinets. We have two speakers that must be removed also. I will have to check my notes but I as I recall something had to be removed that supported one of the cabinets on the passenger side. This was to be able to shift the cabinet in order to get one and out and remove the entire cabinet. I'll have to get my notes sorry can't remember. pff
