Air Filter Winnebago Sightseer 29 w/ Triton V10

Hello - I suspect once I get an answer I'll feel like a fool, but at least I'll have an answer.

I want to change the air filter on my RV, but I'm having difficulty opening the air filter housing. See image. Thoughts?

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.

Seriously? Do you see the 3 metal latches? Lift them up, unhook the metal hook devise and lift off the plastic box that encloses the element. It goes back together the same way.

Yes, I'm aware of the three metal latches and yes I unhooked them. Feeling around in the back, I didn't find the same latches.

There aren't any on the back side most likely. There will be some tabs that fit into notches. Once you get the cover off you will see what I mean about tabs and notches. It can sometimes be difficult to get the cover back on because it must seal around the entire cover so you need to push the cover back in and click the latches back.

My bet is that the gasket in the upper cover is stuck to the lower half. Make sure all the latches are open and just push and pull. It will then pop loose. Then you'll be able to see how the cover comees all the way off.

Answer on the air filter question

Here's what I found - Release the three latches. Loosen the hose clamp connected to the upper housing. With a little work, the housing will come up enough to remove the old filter and install the new one. And if anyone is wondering, it took an STP SA10071 filter. About $30. Case closed.

Thanks.
