Removing a Mouse felt trim panel

Hi,
I need to remove a piece of felt trim (white strip in picture) that is right over the (sliding and fixed) screen door on the inside of the AI. I do have plastic trim tools but don't want to start prying away and wind up breaking something.
Does anyone know how these are attached? I tried to gently pull and to gently pry but it did not give. It may require more force or I may be just doing it wrong.
Any hints or tips on getting this off would be much appreciated!

We have a 2014.5 that didn’t have that particular panel, so ymmv.

We’ve removed several panels from ours that were mounted on the MB plastic trim. All of them were attached with christmas trees.

Our trim panel on the sliding door was held be a few screws with covers over the head and by a few christmas tree plugs.

There no obvious screws in this Airstream installed trim. I will assume it is fastened by christmas trees fasteners and pry away.

I think it may slide forward to remove. The mouse fur across the over-cab cabinet on my 2014.5 slid toward the sliding door to remove. It had slots with a larger hole at one end.

they were plastic xmas tree fasteners. I really had to pull on it, way more than one would expect.
