18 x 18 side table

I have an 08 34' Alpne. I wish to remove the 18x18 cabinet behind the copilot seat in order to put in a computer desk. I have removed 7 screws in the back and the cabinet still will not come loose. What else is holding the cabinet in place? Any suggestions?

I had the same thing in my Holiday Rambler and found that the bottom of the cabinet was thin wood that had to be unstapled and there were screws underneath it.

Maybe that will work.

Usually screws through the bottom shelf into the floor. If your cabinet has the fuzzy fabric on the bottom shelf they will be a little harder to see. Sometimes there is a bead of silicone between the cabinet top and the wall.

I have removed my side table and found that the bottom "fuzzy" covered panel will actually lift up using a small putty knife or screwdriver. Underneath you will find additional screws into the side wall and floor. That should allow you to remove it.

On our 2002 MDDS I moved ours back about 3" so that the passenger seat would recliner and rotate properly. I took 2" out of the depth to allow more room. Also, added another 110v outlet and 12v outlets on both sides of cabinet.
We use it for the laptop and it works very well.

Update on the 18" cube cabinet. Thank you all for the comments. I removed it successfully. I don't know what Alpine thought was going to happen but it had 17 - 2" screws and 2 - 3" screws. Anyway, I now have a compute desk. Thanks All.

And the beginnings of a hardware store, apparently.
