The only time I've ever had to do it was to lubricate my exhaust brake!

I have a Cummins EPA07 ISC engine and have to replace the coalescing filter located on top of the engine every 24 months, which is accessed through the bedroom floor.

My CAT 3126B has a grease zerk on the fan idler pully that needs service once a year and the exhaust brake as well. Got pretty good at removing it LOL.

We've had out coach nearly four years. I've opened that cover once...just to see what the engine looked like from there.

The OP didn't mention what model of CC he has so being able to say how many times he will have to pull up the cover is an unknown.

My '02 Intrigue has had the cover lifted once in 116,000 miles for service. I did lift it once just to see what was there

I have never opened it for maintenance however I do open it every spring when dewinterizing the coach. I check for animal nesting and for anything that looks unusual.

So with your side radiator ISL do you have access to servicing the coalescing filter without going through the bedroom?

Side radiator coach - on rare occasions.

Rear radiator coach - most of the time and make sure you have a large credit line on your CC.

It's a very good idea for you to learn how to open/colse just in case you run into trouble. Also a good isde just to "take a look" to see if all is well. Might even want to inspect belts & such/ You just might prevent future repairs. Don't let comments like Grab Your Wallet if they have to open the hatch scare you.
