Hello and . We are glad to have you join us and we look forward to reading of your adventures and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy the website and forums. Good luck, stay safe and keep us posted.
The chassis manufacturer dictates the air filter make model and placement most of the time. You might want to move your posting to that specific forum or at least let us know what chassis the coach is on. Enjoy!

My 3126 is on a Freightliner XC chassis. With that being said, how to remove it.

loosen the big hose clamp in the inlet end and slide the inlet flexible pipe out of the way. Loosen the big hose clamp on the outlet side (motor side) and slide the elbow pipe off the filter. Loosen and un-clip the two bands that hold the filter in the filter rack. These two bands are like a latch on a ceder chest or old tool box (sorry for no better description)
Drag that big sucker out....all there is to it.

It looks bigger and badder than it really is
