Hi there!

Just your average baby DIY-er here. I live in a 2012 Vanderbilt Mobile home and I'm ripping down my very disgusting plastic tub surround but I have run into an issue where I can't get one side of the surround off of the wall that contains the tub faucet. The surround is trapped behind this standard straight pipe setup. It looks like a closed pipe system put in place purposefully to prevent DIY-ers from raising property value. But I could be just be a little dumb and just not know my plumbing 101.

Am I going to have to CUT these off and then replace them before I can install my new surround?
