In my 2004 35u, pick up the bed and there is a cover in the wood that lifts up about an 18inch square cover. Mine takes a 20x14 Vet Man

I fixed mine so I do not have to move bed or lift it. I made the side vents on bed so the can be slid open. Just lay accross the bed and open vent take out old filter and put in new one. Reason was I hated to emty the under bed storage.

OK folks here's a suggestion. BEFORE you remove your filters to change them, get a rag or some type of duster and go over the open grill work (large chicken wire) on the side of the bed or where ever the opening is. The opening(s) (sometimes plural) is(are) usually located on the inlet side of the AC. You will notice that the wire itself traps a lot of dust. Before you dislodge the dust run your AC or put it in the "ON" mode and then dust off the wire. The filter will trap the dust particles as they come off AND THEN change the filter. You could also clean the wire with a vacuum but hey whatever works for you is OK by me. One other suggestion, spray the wire with Lysol, that'll freshen up the wire surface and who knows might "whack" some germs or something like that!

Since you're living in such a small and tight environment that pushes a lot of air use the highest MIRV rated filter you can. I usually try to by 3M Filtrete types or better if I can find them.

On our 38G there are "2" 14x20 filters, make sure you check your system for dual filters. I have one under the bed and the other is located under the closet floor along the back wall.

DriVer Your right I found another one one the other side of the bed. It is a 10x20. That sure is a lot of lost space under there. I'll also check in the closet. That would be for the heat? Is it in behind the grill.

Correct on two filters, one is "AC" other is "Heat".

RVDriver,

I have two filters under the bed for AC. I have not found a filter for LP heat. I have a grill under the makeup table, but no filter behind it. Should I?
Thanks

This 2 filter thing must be on newer and bigger Mh's. Only have the one under the bed. On the 35U closet slides out with bed. Very thin floor in closet.

I've only been able to find one filter in my 2004 Journey 39W - below the chest of drawers under the TV in the bedroom. Anyone with a 39W or 39K found another? The manual isn't too clear and right now mine is at the dealer for repairs (took it in May 11 - still waiting for floor tiles). If there is another filter I'd sure like to change it.

Thanks

It's funny that just today a friend came by the rig and asked if I was aware that there are 2 filters in the AC/heat system. I told him no of course. He said that another friend was cleaning her closet carpets with a shop vac and pulled up an until then unknown access panel. The finger hole was well disgused by the carpet. She owns an Adventurer 38 type. He owns a 37type and he found his based on her find. Well he was warning ALL Winnebago owners in the campground and now we all are looking for extra filters. I have an '05 38R Adventure. I tore the bedroom and closet apart but could only find the under bed filter. I wonder if I missed something? My owners manual talks about filters in the plural. As I write this 2 more closet filters have been "found". One on a rig bought in 2002. YUCK!!. I can't help but wonder how many more of us out there don't know about the closet filter or why Winnebago dosen't make them more visable. Anyway, The boss is away visiting the kids today and as I stated earlier I just slightly rearranged the bedroom and closet.......... Usually though I run a lot faster scared than she does mad. Wish me luck!!!!

I think both filters are in the same space. Its a large opening under there. Maybe both the heat and AC are both returned thru here. Maybe no because I also have what I think is a return under the make up desk. I haven't looked behind the grill or in the closet yet. Getting ready to leave for out west Mon. Will look tomorrow and post what I find.

I also have an '05 38r, a SUncruiser and I only have one filter. That one is located under the bed.
