2005 Fleetwood Discovery 39S Gen Slide question

I have a 2005 Discovery 39S and I just received it a few weeks ago. I want to service the Onan 7500 but wonder how would I know if the generator set is on a slide? Thanks to anyone who can help with this question.

I just traded in our 2005 39s. The Gen was not on a slide.

Well Sir,
Not knowing your coach, and it's front end design, it's hard to give an accurate answer. Our coach, an '04 Itasca Horizon with the C-7 330HP CAT has a generator on a slide. But, it's real easy to tell because, the front end of the coach, has separations in the fiberglass, unlike the Meridians and Journey's of the same year which, have no separations.

The separations are for when the correct handles are released, and a pin is pulled, the generator will slide forward, fiberglass front piece and all. In the picture below, you'll see the vertical separations in the front fiberglass cap. You'll also see the recessions for the hidden handles too. Do you have anything like you see in the picture. Again, I know yours is a Discovery and ours is a Itasca so, there will be body differences.
Scott

All is well with the world. I got up under and took care of business, didn't miss anything. Thank you all for your input!
