Has anyone removed wall mirrors?

I have 2 mirrors over the credenza on the end of the pantry/microwave cabinet. They are mounted on the textured white wallboard. I believe that they may be mounted with some sort of double-sided tape. There have been some complaints on the forum in the distant past about similar mirrors falling off.

Has anyone removed these mirrors? If so, can it be done without badly marring the wallboard behind them.

We now have the flat-panel TV on the credenza, but it has become the favorite lounging place for the cat and it is very hard to see through her. I would like to permanantly mount the TV higher, but there is insufficient wall space with both mirrors in place.

I feel bad replying to you based on everything you have done on your trailer but here goes anyway. Obviously, everything changes with each model year (if not month to month) but I looked at a 2006 28' Classic before I cheaped out and bought the Safari. In that unit, the mirrors were held in place by a very small metal or plastic channel above and below the mirror. Since I knew they would have to go, I tried sliding the mirrors. They moved with a little effort. That is about all I know.

Wish mine were that simple. On mine, there is no evidence of any external support. That's why I guessed maybe double-sided tape. A/S must have made a change from 2005 to 2006.

redecorating due to cats?

all of the cats we have do the redecorating for us! just ask my wife about her flower arraingements in the house!

you might try a hacksaw blade with the end taped up to prevent scratching the wall board. once the mirror is off a heat gun used gently might remove the remainder of the adheasive tape.

Might you risk 7 years bad luck, the cat is not black is it John? Break the mirror you want to move and then you will see how it is attached. Or is that just plain foolishness?

John---We have an 06 30' classic with "those" mirrors. I removed ours shortly after we took delivery. 2 reasons--we wanted to put a picture there --didn't particularly like the look. Ours were mounted in a channel top and botton which had a slight crimp on each end. I opened the crimp and with a little effort the mirrors slid out leaving the channels. They were attached with what looked like 2 sided tape and the bottom rail had staples additionally. I carefully pulled on one end and removed the rails. A little WD40 dribbled on the tape helps loosen the tape and toothpaste filled the staple holes.
