Removing the locker dividers on 2013 25 Intl.

Hi all,

I want to remove the locker divider to install an additional 12v outlet and another dual-usb outlet. This divider already contains two 120v outlets (inverter and shore) and one 12v outlet. I removed the DVD cabinet and found the divider only has two screws visible (near the bottom). I removed these screws and found the divider won't budge. I'm missing something, the question is what?



-Adam

Do you have down firing speakers in that cabinet? If so, you can likely remove the speaker and reach up behind the divider without having to remove it.

It might be wedged in place. If you can get the speakers out, try pushing gently from inside. Or hook something into the bottom back cable grommet and pull gently.

Mine stick a bit but gently prying with a plastic car trim removal tool helped get the ‘stuck’ one out. Ours had nothing mounted in it on the front streetside. Stereo head is in the rear streetside end of the upper cabinet.

We mounted our MPPT solar controller in the front face, and had to run some stiff cable behind the divider into our wardrobe closet.

Thanks. I did (briefly) look above the speaker and found it absolutely packed with wires and audio gear, it was nuts. I shuddered and screwed the speaker back in! But when I am back at the trailer, I'll check it out again.

I'm hearing the consensus is that those two screws are probably the only ones... anyone have a different experience?

I believe mine has three with one at the top. Look in the vicinity of the track. I left them threaded to use as handles to pull out the panel. It was not difficult to remove, but yours is older and may be different. I can't recall if I removed the cover plates from the electric outlets and if that made a difference.

On our 2012 International Serenity, the “locker divider” is simply a cosmetic cover placed on top of a structural plywood bulkhead that is used to help secure the cabinet to the wall.
The cover on ours came free once the screws are removed but there is the plywood behind it.

Good info!

Good stuff. I was wondering why the wall was so THICK - makes sense now that I am only trying to get the facade off. Seems like it might be tricky to wire up some new ports in here from looking at that pic, but we'll see!

Thanks,
Adam

Divider

Well, oddly enough the curbside locker divider on my 2013 Intl was not easily removable. Although I had a thin divider on the street side that could be removed, the curb side was thick plywood and wouldn't budge at all after removing the screws. Gripping the divider through the cutouts and pulling hard could shake the whole trailer, so I had to work around it! Which wasn't ideal but proved perfectly fine in the end. Completely removing the AC outlets and the stereo allowed me to route some wires, install a couple of new 12v ports (usb, power) and get my Yagi antenna wire where I needed it.

Just another data point, but thanks everyone!
