Onan Oil Change

I am getting ready to do an oil change on my Onan generator. I have an 2005 Alpine coach 36FDDS and it appears to me that I must remove the bracket from below the generator that holds the generator exhaust pipe in order to get to the oil filter access door. Does anyone know another way to the oil filter without removing the exhaust pipe bracket? My son did the last oil change and he skiing in Colorado, so it's up to me. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated!

Thanks!!!

Yours may be slightly different but I remove the exhaust flange at the engine to give more room to work.

You should be able to remove the green side panel and gain access.

Nope--you have to remove the bracket to get the door open--dont think you can get the door off the hinges....

I also remove the two screws from the inspection cover and the entire cover comes off providing access to the Fuel and Oil Filters.
