interior engine cover 2013 Vista 30T

While driving today in a very high wind, the interior engine cover between the 2 front seats lifted up and began bouncing. The carpet behind it was inflating like a balloon.

Can't find on the Winnebago drawings what keeps this cover fastened down. Assume there are latches underneath, one or two. Perhaps all the driving over potholes for the last 5 months giggled them loose or they just fell off. Engine still too hot from today's ride to get under there and look.

Anyone have any ideas how this cover is secured and what I might do, short of putting two concrete blocks on the cover to hold it down until I get home from this cross-country trek?

Thanks for your ideas and suggestions.

I think there's an allen head bolt hiding in the carpet, dead center at the rear of the cover. It sounds like that bolt may have worked itself out. I think I read it in the Vista 26HE thread but it's 30 pages long.

Offset 3 inches or so from dead center in some Winnies... it can be hard to find in the carpet.

I pulled my engine cover to preemptively repair a potential water hose failure. I found there is a screw on both sides of the front of the cover and a hex latch at the rear. Hope the pics help.
