remodeling nuwa hitchhiker cabinet and having trouble! help!

well, my husband and I are in the middle of a simple remodeling. we figure maybe painting the walls and staining the blonde-ish cabinets and new furniture might help, but I'm trying to remove this ceiling/wall cabinet that just won't come off! I have looked all around it and it looks like I have got all the screws out. I'm wondering if there could be screws on the outside, that I can't see or missed, but I've put a blade through the edges of the cabinet and nothing, no screws that I can feel or see. so could it be glued? anyone ever had an issue like this? I just want it off the wall. so any help would be awesome! thanks!

Look under the top of the unit to make sure that screws were not installed into the ceiling to help support it. One thing that you might want to do is to go to You Tube and see if you can find a factory tour video and see how they put the cabinets together. Some, not all, attach the cabinets to the outer wall via screws from the outside. Also, the cabinet may be attached on the side to the cabinet next to it. Glue might have been used also.

The 1/8 inch thick paneling that covers the bottom of the cabinet may have been installed AFTER the cabinet was installed. So, you may need to pop it off as there may be screws hidden underneath.

If you think it screwed to the cabinet next to it, remove the door and look under the hinge for a screw

Call NuWa. They can help. Yes, they are still in business but not producing RVs. They should be able to tell you how the cabinets were installed.
