Bill, I know this is an old post but did you resolve the problem of replacing the air filter?
I have a 2012 40 QBH on a Powerglide chassis and my mechanic says he cannot remove it. The exhaust pipe is in the way.

Likely differing. On my 2011 Phaeton 40 QTH on Freightliner. The air filter is on the DS. The rearmost DS compartment has a removable access panel. Working through the access panel and from underneath the air filter canister is relatively easy to change.

I think it has to do with the Powerglide chassis. There are very few 2011-2 Phaetons on Powerglide. I bought mine used in 2016 and the previous owner said that Bay Diesel had to drop the exhaust pipe the change the air filter. I was just wondering if anyone had it fixed.

No I just have my mechanic drop the exhaust when he needs to change it. About every 3 years with my usage.
