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.
