How to access the engine air filter

Hi, I have a 2008 Astoria with the Cummings 340HP engine. My indicator says it's time (mileage wise) to replace the engine air fliter. How do I access it? Is it the under the bedroom floor panel? If so, is the panel easy to undo and put back? Do I need to seal the panel with Silicon seal? If not under the bedroom floor then where would it be?

Steve

Thanks for the info. I see the cylinder. The Damon CS personnel emailed me that the access is through the last compartment on the driver's side, the one that the electrical cord is stored. I understand that it is difficult to change because of the tight space. (Not engineered for maintenance.) I'll see how difficult it really is, I like challenges.

Thanks for your reply, and I do follow a lot of your postings.
