    3788 vinyl covered side panel removal question

    Has anyone removed the side panel in the galley? I need to install a propane leak detector in the panel and route the wire through the cabinet below to the galley floor. It looks like several screws hold it in place. Could it be just that easy?

    I have taken the opposite sides panel off. It was held by the screws. For me it was a bear to remove as its tightly wedged in there. Lots of “giggeling” if that’s a word to get it out. Assuming same for galley side.

      Yes, giggling is a word, but you were probably doing more jiggling and cursing than laughing. (sorry....couldn't resist).

        Thanks. I was puzzled that there are screws along the top but not the bottom. I will venture forth when I return to the boat now that I am better psyched.

          On my 3870 I removed the drawers and fed the wire through from the stb helm.

            My 3888 vinyl panels had a few screws, some of those plastic car interior ribbed rivets (you just pull the panel off if your brave enough to try it) and some had some glue in addition to the screws. I seemed to be factory but I'm the 3rd owner.
