Get at roof ac air filter

Hi All--

This is for a 2007 CC Intrigue. Has anyone taken the ceiling apart to get at the roof AC air filters? I saw it done once but can't remember the sequence. Attached is a picture of the ceiling.

Thanks for any help.

The padded section is held by snaps.They overlap the chrome.

Thanks--do you snap off the padding before you deal with the wood trim?

Re: Accessing the roof top AC filters. We have an 06 Intrigue with a similar ceiling. We recently stopped at Eric Olstrom's shop in Tucson and asked him how we access the filters. He showed us that you pull out the wood strips first before unsnapping the ceiling panels. We did not take it apart then, but he cautioned that you need two people prepared to support 40-50 lbs once the snaps are free or you are likely to drop it if doing alone. We have still not removed them, but would love to hear from someone who has!

On our 2008 Affinity #6890 the fabric panels directly under the A/C units unsnap to access the filters and condensate drains. The wood is not removed at all.

I have watched a tech take this apart once before and I don't recall any really heavy panels as you describe. Amazing that this is so complicated.

Similar but not exactly the same.

Dont deal at all with the wood trim. Only the thicker fabric covered panels. They have snaps and possibly the same latches as your rear closet.

How to remove the Ceiling to get at AC filter

OK--finally figured this out. In a 2007 CC Intrigue 45 feet, the front AC is above the second section from the front. To take off the section, first remove the forward soft panel by gently prying off. This will reveal several screws. Now, pry off the rearward wood trim section. This will reveal two more screws. Remove all screws while holding up the panel. It weighs about 14-18 pounds best guess. Have a helper if possible. After all screws are out, slide panel towards the front of the coach. There is a flat tongue style metal piece that will slide out at the rear of the section and you can then completely remove the panel. See picture. Access all three AC's in the same manner.

And if you are replacing the roof AC, make sure you get a new condensation pump with the new AC unit. The original one will not fit. Thanks to all.

Thanks for sharing the procedure in detail. Whoever has one with similar set up (i.e. 06 and up for Intrigue, and 05 and up for Magna and Affinity) might want to file it away for future reference.
