Remove black cover

Hi
Hopefully not a totally stupid question.
How do I remove the black cover marked in the photo?
Thanks
Gunnar

I would say that you will have to remove the "beltline" or "rubrail" or whatever it is called--the piece of trim that covers the line of rivets that connect that black plastic to the exterior skin of the trailer.

Why are you needing to remove that panel? If it's to get to something under the trailer it's common to remove the flat belly pan, not the curved section. What's your end goal?

I am afraid of removing the belly pan. I just wanted to get rid of a black water tank which is installed in the subfloor (maybe see my other post if possible).
Thanks for any suggestions.

The belly pan will be easier to remove than the curved sections, and if my trailer is anything like yours you are not going to get the tank out by removing only the side curved sections.

To remove the curved sections you've got to get the belt line trim out of the way to get to the rivets underneath. Someone who's done it on a trailer like yours will hopefully chime in and post some more specific information.
