Engine cover

I have 2005 30' sightseer and cat get engine cover off.

Manual says to take off beverage tray to access some wing nuts. It's just screwed to the cover....no acess to anything.

I unlocked the hex nut at the back but cannot move the cover. It seems stuck at the front.

Any suggestions?

Cheers!!

There are two self tapping screws hidden in the carpeting on the side of the cover at the front. You have to feel around to find them.

Once removed they don't need to be put back.

We had a 2004 27C and there are probably two screws buried in the carpet that hold the cover on. They were on the sides near the top and forward. Polk around or use a magnet or metal detector.

Once you get it off you may want to take the time to add some Dynamat to the cover to insulate yourself from engine noise and heat. Made a world of difference in my coach. You don't realize how tired you get from the excess engine noise and heat that comes up through the dog house until its gone.

How good can it work? After I installed it I had a friend visiting in the coach and asked him if he wanted me to start the engine so he could hear for himself. When he replied "Please do" I informed him that it already was running.

The radio was on and there were others chattering about in the coach at the time yet he did not notice that the V10 was idling while we were standing over the doghouse talking.
