Travel Supreme

I have a 2000 travel supreme 33RL SS and would like to put a generator in the front storage area. Does anyone know where I can find a structural diagram where the steel supports are located in the compartment

The belly is enclosed. Is it difficult to remove belly panel

That would likely be difficult considering how long T.S. has been closed. Easiest solution would be to cut a piece of 3/4 inch plywood, exterior grade the side of the compartment and let it distribute the weight of the genny over the entire compartment, thus guaranteeing that you have the support you need. You might have to use two pieces to get them in then connect them. Just a bought.

Have you looked at your underbelly? Should just be screws holding it up.
That or just cut a flap in it and then tape it back up when done.

You are going to need to uncover the belly area no matter what--the gen will need venting area to bring in/exhaust cooling air. Not talking about exhaust gases--that is separate issue and will also need to exit thru the bellypan.

yes. the area under the generator must be open to vent. Additionally, the interior walls and top of the cabinet must be lined with metal, and the cabinet door should be vented to let air in or out.

As far as the underbelly, it is generally screwed into place and any seams covered with a caulking material.
