Term'x catalytic heater

I have a Therm'x catalytic heater in my trailer and the mounting screws to the wall have become loose. I removed the front grill and the lower plate, but I need to remove the pad to get to the mounding screws. I have searched everywhere for information regarding this, but have found nothing helpful. I know that these units were added to many trailers. Can anyone help me get this pad removed?

Well, wish I could help you but mine fell off the wall and I had to make a new frame for it and remount it to the wall. I had evidently loosened it when I unhooked the gas line to put in the new floor. I have a 78 Argosy. The new sturdier frame is mounted back to the wall with larger screws and makes the whole assembly more rugged. I know this is not any help to you, but it is my experience with the wall heater. Perhaps it's not supposed to come apart, but come off as one unit.

The one that was in my 74 and the one in my 97 are made with a hole for the screw to slip into and then lower the heater onto the slots that are connected to the hole. Attempt to lift the heater straight up about 3/8 inch and pull it away from the wall. Hoping that is the way yours is mounted also.

You're right. Now that I remember it hangs on the wall like some of the clocks you buy. Just lift up and pull out. I had forgotten that, sorry. But I was right about it coming off in one piece.

decanada & Juel, Thank you! I disconnected the propane line and lifted that sucker right off the wall. Tightened the loose screws and put it back. Thanks again!
