O'l refrig has to go

Okay, the OL fridge has to go. I drilled the old rivets but there has to be something more holding this thing in because it won't budge. Any ideas or solutions?

There is usually two spots where its screwed in. The frame screws (inside the RV) and the frame base screws outside just outside the access door. Good Luck!

I have part of the solution

I found that the rivets were still holding the unit in, so I used a screwdriver as I did not have a chisel handy and got some out. However in the morning I will use a slightly larger drill bit so as to remove the rivet altogether. Thanks for the input.

I have to remove my failed fridge as well. There are 4 screws/rivets (2 on each side) inside the trailer attaching the fridge's inner face frame to the front of the kitchen cabinet. Mine were covered with plastic caps that blended in with the frame color. There are 2 screws outside behind the lower vent attaching the corners of the fridge's bottom frame to the floor of the fridge compartment.

Well, got it out this morning. Used a larger drill bit and did all the rivets. Had to drill some fiberglass that had rivets as well behind the frig afterward the unit just slipped out. Shut down the gas and cut the lines. Smooth as butter.
