2004 Newmar Mountain Aire - Headboard Removal

Back again, we are here in Terre Haute, IN until DW retires in January. Then we start traveling these great United States, going south first.

Until then we are staying at the local KOA. DW wants to do some "remodeling" while we are here before the adventure begins. This weekends project, removing the original headboard from the mirrored wall.

Best I can tell the headboard is attached around the top only. Does anybody have experience in removing these. I know I can force it really don't want to break the mirror if I can help it.

Any thoughts?

Never mind, DW just went gorilla and pulled it off of the wall. Turns out there were four screws holding it on.

Was there anything on the front of the head board to indicate where the screws were located now that you know where they are (were)? It could help someone else remove one without going gorilla.

Just a guess, but knowing Newmar, there are likely wooden plugs.

On our 2004 MADP (like the OP's), the headboard is upholstered in fabric so wooden plugs, if any, would not be visible.

We did not see any indication of the screws from the bedside. There were four screws in two pairs. Two screws about three inches apart about 8 - 10 inches down on both sides. Meaning, about Midway between the far left and center of the headboard we're two screws about 3 inches apart. The same on the right side.

Here are a couple of pictures that show that the mirrors were not behind where the screws were. Plus you can see where the screws were. Hope this helps someone in the future.
