How do I remove the bottom cabinets in my kitchen?
« on: November 04, 2016, 04:47:23 PM »
Well we have had a lot of fun this week fixing the floor & wall under/behind the couch after discovering a water leak in our 2000 Holiday Rambler Vacationer.  We have just about finished with that.  Now the question is, how the heck do we remove the bottom cabinets so that we can look for water damage under there?  Bonus points for pics and/or video!

Thanks, all!

All cabinets are fastened to the floor and to the walls, so you just have to find the fasteners and that is a job of its own !

Usually have to remove the countertop(s) first. Then the bases, as Normand describes. Finding the screws is a matter of hunting and numerous contortions to get at them. One technique is to pry at them gently with a flat pry bar like the Stanley Wonderbar, and try to see where the screws are resisting movement. Just don't splinter anything by pushing too hard.

As said above, finding all of the hidden screws and staples is a job in it self.
Just be patient, and you will eventually get it all a part.
