Removing panels

I have a 2004 classic AS with bedroom in back. I have two panels on each side of the bed. About 4 ft by 1 1/2 ft by about 4 inches deep covered in carpet. I want to remove them but for the likes of me I can't figure out how they are fastened to floor or wall. I had a water issue this last time out and I want to make sure I don't have water damage. If necessary I can post a picture.

Gotta be glue or screw. And the first doesn't make sense.

My '02 Classic had the same panels you are describing. There are long screws holding them in place. It's been a while since I removed mine, but I think I just ran my fingers over the carpet until I found the screws. It's not easy to find them in the carpet covering! Good luck!

I just had another thought on finding the screws hidden in the carpet covering the panels in the bedroom. Move a magnet over the carpet and hopefully it will locate those screws!!!

They were three inch screws put into the wall. Pointed I might add. Cut one side with a bolt cutter and saved the panel on the other side that was covering the wiring. That is when I discovered several wiring holes in the floor allowing water to seep into the carpet when driving in the rain, and condensation from the water heater doing it's thing with the floor. AS didn't think of making vent holes on the side cover.
