uninstalling cabinets

1999 monaco mckenzie 29' travel trailer.
I am trying to take the cabinets out because of water damage and I have taken every screw I can find on the inside of the trailer. I am wondering how to get them out without destorying them. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if the cabinets in my coach are built the same as yours, but..

The interior walls of the cabinets in my coach are false walls. They are very precision fitted, and simply pushed into place. With patience, thin screwdrivers, knives, etc, I can very carefully remove the interior walls of the cabinets. This exposes the actual framework of the cabinet which is full of lots of screws fastening the cabinet to the wall.

Hope this helps.

You aren't going to see the majority of the screws with the cabinet floors and cabinet interior sidewalls in place. Those are installed after the cabinets are fastened to the walls, ceiling and each other....
