Replacing countertop

We are going to replace the countertop in our 2012 International Serenity 23FB. How hard is it to remove the stove, sink and faucet? Any tips will be appreciated.

If itís like the FC nothing is hard, just donít force anything, thereís probably another screw you didnít find. The metal band that holds the top to the sidewall is hard to get to. Instead of removing the top from the band I ended up removing the band from the wall and leaving the band attached until I could get the top out. After I made the new top I reattached the band to the new top and could then reattach to the wall. That make ant sense?

Remove the sink first, makes getting to some of the screws much easier.

Many thanks for the help... it really was easy using the old one for a template.

That made perfect sense!
I have removed all the screws from the band going into the wall but there are 3 large rivets left to remove. The part of the rivet that you can see is about a half inch across. Have not seen rivets like this before. Did you have to remove those.
Iím wondering if they are holding up something up I canít see inside the wall.

If you are asking about ours it is concrete-looking laminate from Ikea. It was very inexpensive and still looks like the day we installed it! Pretty lightweight, too!
