Removing the bathroom cabinet

Hi all,

A while back I had a critter in the attic of my 3610RL, which chewed through the cable for the fan.

I have a temp cable in use but it’s visible on the wall from the switch.

I thought about removing the bathroom cabinet to possibly help with fishing the cable through the ceiling and to the wall mounted switch, amongst several other cables.

When I tried fishing the cable, it got jammed within the other cables which are hidden in the wall.

One BIG concern is this...if I remove the cabinet from the wall, will the mounting hardware re- tighten so the cabinet is securely against the wall.

Suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks

If the mounting holes went into solid structure like aluminum wall studs, then yes. If just into the 1/8" wakeboard, then you need to use thin .ca glue in each of the mounting holes and let it dry. This makes the holes and surrounding wood really strong.

My fantastic fan has a 5 inch plastic shroud that can be removed and provides easy access to the roof attic area. If possible, I would attach the new cable to the old after removing the wire nuts and pull the new through while removing the old. It's usually the wire nuts that get hung up, or another line is jumped to it.

The problem with removing the cabinets is that they are not like 6 sided home cabinets. They are typically only 2 - 4 sided. They fall apart when removed.

Thanks for all responses

McRod....I tried using a wire fish tool without success. The end of the fish tool kept hitting wall studs, etc.

I may just have to use adhesive wire guides and attach to bathroom ceiling. I am definitely NOT going to pay over $300.00 to an RV repair shop to have panels removed and wire replaced��
