Engine Cover Removal

Can anyone help me with the process of removing the engine cover on a 05 Itasca Suncruiser, Workhorse, 8.1L?

My 2002 itasca suncruiser has a allen wrench that is toward the back of the cover in the middle of the cover. The wrench sticks through the carpet. Once turned the cover slides backwards.

Engine Cover

If yours is like mine try an 8MM Allen Wrench at the middle lower end of the carpeted engine cover. There is a carpeted covered hole that the allen wrench will fit into. Turn the wrench counter clockwise and lift up the same end and pull towards you to remove. It is awkward and slightly heavy.

Find the hole thru the carpet at the back of the cover just above floor level and maybe just a bit right of center. Insert a 5/16" Allen wrench and rotate CCW.

I found the allen and also a phillips head screw on the drivers side (dash end) but I cannot find a similar screw on the passenger side and the cover appears to be fastened in that corner.
