How have other people removed it or have they done it inside?
Never cook inside but it is showing her age.

Not really an answer to your question, although I remember, (back in 2008 when I bought my trailer,) one of the first things I got rid of was that useless stove cover. Besides being incredibly ugly, and me being right-handed, it was always in the way while doing anything on the stove. My stove cover became a bamboo cutting board, which was much more practical. It was mounted to four short legs that straddled the top of the burner rings and was cradled in place by the legs fitting snugly at the four rounded corners of the stove. My galley has, since then, evolved into something much more practical and utilitarian. A real sink which is deep enough to actually wash a plate in and not have water going all over the counter, (and under the stove,) as well as a recessed stove that is sealed and flush mounted to the counter, like the sink is, which no longer allows water and food crumbs to get under neath it. It's all stainless, has sealed burners which actually allow me to turn the burners down to a very low simmer without blowing out, (something the old POS Dometic could never do,) and if anything gets spilled, it is easy to just wipe out. And yes, my trusty old bamboo cutting board was cut down and fits in the recess of the new stove which still provides an excellent prep area.

Below is the steps I used to repaint the cover in our 2003 SD. Painted the furnace grill and the table post and floor socket (for the table) at the same time using a Rustoleum paint that was a "hammered" brownish/bronze color

 

drill out the rivets on the hinge

 

spray pained with Rustoleum paint color of your choice

 

re-install with pop rivets


Happy Trails!

Clover..Thanks for the help to drill out pop rivets. Will do that.

Greg.. Your work is awesome, I'm sure you would never sell your Casita, if you did it should be auctioned to highest bidder. I'm certain it would unbelievable

He's a artist, isn't he! (Euphoria/Greg, I mean). I bet my boots he's designed airplanes or something...
