'06 Bounder 39Z Heater core R&R

I can't find an RV dealer or heavy truck repair facility to make this repair. Fleetwood was kind enough to send some diagrams of the dash construction, but no detail of the sequence for removal of the varIous components.
1. This is mid-entry model. There are 2 kick panels (vertical vinyl covered) starting from the right of the driver's seat around to the right sidewall. Does all of this need to be removed to get to the black box that contains the heater core?
If so does the metal frame need to be removed to get the panels off (i. e. Are the panels attached to this metal frame?) Is this metal frame the "dog house"? I can find no screws under the carpet that might hold the panels in place.
2. Once the panels are removed, it looks like the black box would have to be pulled back to clear the copper pipes on the core and then raised in order to release the retainers holding the core in the box and then pulled out. Must the top of the dash be removed in order to do all of this?
Any help in this would be appreciated. At one point yesterday I did consider dynamite.
