Glad I spent the time to find this thread - I was just about to post a completely new one 'cause I couldn't find the info I was looking for: just to clarify the removal of the stove (stove top or whole thing?) in order to replace the counter top:
Is this also what one would do when replacing just a portion of the counter due to water damage? I was considering just whacking out the damaged part, adjacent to the backsplash (would post a picture but she's at the trailer doctor at the moment). Is this suggested or would it be prudent to just replace the entire countertop? Anyone have pix of the removal process, by the way?
