Window Valance Removal; 37' TropiCal

We have a 2005 TropiCal T370 Diesel Pusher. We're going to replace our Day-Night shades with MCD's, and would like to update the valances as well. I just started removing the valance on the small window in the Lounge slide aft of the dinette. I've removed the screws from the mounting brackets, and can find no other mounting screws but the valance appears to be also fastened from the top on the right hand side to the overhead cupboard. Does the floor of the overhead cupboard remove? It's the only thing I can figure that would give access to some other mounting screws.

The screws are their, going up, just hard to find. You might try a small magnet to find them. Tough working in tight spaces especially if you have bifocal glasses..

Thanks to y'all! I was hoping that would be the case. I'll just have to look a little harder. I do have those danged bifocals. Hope I don't tip over.

Yes, usually 3 screws through the valence header from behind the blind up into the overhead cabinet. I use a ratchet screw-driver and a 8" extension. Most of mine were regular Phillips head deck screws, but I did find a couple of *#&$ square slot screws in the mix. The first time, I just felt along the header to find the screws. Some were sunk into the fabric wrap and barely visible.
