2015 34t bounder

How do you get the battery cover out on a 2015 bounder? I have it lose but can't get it out of the hole.

If you are talking about removing the step covers to get to the battery compartment, mine was very difficult also. The first time I went to check the batteries I had to first remove the black wood fascia from the front of the step which was held on by a single screw that was barely covered by the rubber bull nose on the step above. Once that was off the step cover could be removed by tilting it up and sliding it out with great difficulty. To simplify the job I cut approximately 1/8" from both sides of the step cover to allow a little more clearance. The other problem I had was some of the battery cables were routed over the caps necessitating their removal to get the caps off. Since I like to check the water levels frequently I purchased two Pro-Fill Battery Watering Systems and routed the filler hose out the bottom so I could water the batteries without removing the steps every time. Changed a one hour job to a five minute job.

2015 Bounder battery cover removal

Likewise on the removal being difficult. Mine scarred the sides of step box but I was headed for Fleetwood service center the next week and had them make the trim repairs. I have replaced the slotted screws with hex head so I could use a nut driver versus fussing with the slot and limited screwdriver access.

Good idea replacing the slotted screws. I thought I would be the only one having a few choice words trying to take them out. And the removable stair piece definitely needs a trim. Right now I cannot remove it from the stair well. I tilt it back. I would like to be able to remove them from the well when I will need to replace them. And yes the wires lying (or is it laying?) on top of the batteries is not the safest design. That's a project to work on this winter.
