Help removing bottom panel from closet door

Hello

I have an Airstream 2010 sport 16 ft trailer.

I am trying to seal up leaks and add insulation to the area underneath the closet and refrigerator.

I was trying to remove the wood panel on the bottom of the closet (for better access) and was having difficulty. If anyone could offer advice, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
Kristen

Mine has pocket hole screws thru the bottom to the cabinet walls. For pictures and info Google "pocket hole".

Thank you for responding.

I was able to remove all the pocket hole screws I could see (about 10 total) that attached to both side walls, but the bottom panel (beneath the closet) will still not budge.

I notice screws holding wood planks that support the cardbord piece that forms the bottom of the closet "floor". I have not removed those yet - do you think that would help.

I will take a picture tonight and post tomorrow.

Thank you again for your help. This has been a weeklong project for me to try to figure out how to remove the bottom panel from the closet area.

I would keep removing every screw I could see. When I removed the front couch it was also held together with a couple of dozen hidden staples. To me it looked like that was how it was first put together and then the screws were added. That could be the case with the rest of the furniture.
