If they need to cut out the very thin luan wood layer, they will expose the styrofoam insulation and roof framing. Easy, but more work. And, it's going to be obvious at the edges, unless they extend the work behind the cabinetry, more work, but it's easy to dismantle the cabinets.
When I took in my coach for warranty work I noticed that the repair technicians carried putty knives. I thought this was kinda odd as there is nothing in a motorhome that would call for such a tool. I asked their boss, and he mentioned that those putty knives are used for dismantling cabinets, moldings, countertops, access panels, and all the woodwork in RVs for repair, (and fishing electrical and AV cabling).
Thank you for the info
After talking to Thor you are correct.
I was able to conference call with Thor warranty and camping world.
Camping world had the ceiling panel replacement as a half hour job and easy.
Thor warranty told me it's a six hour job and that there was no need to replace the whole laune ceiling panel.
We all agreed that the best solution was to replace the vinyl paper only and leave the laune substrate.
I will post results after they get the part and complete the job.
I hope they do use there puddly knives and remove the cabinets!
Again thank you for the info and replying.
