Question New member needs help

I signed up here for lots of reasons. But I have an urgent need. I just took ownership of a 79 Winnebago Brave. I need to get the engine cover off. If you know how to get it out easily, or where I could look in forums or post in the the correct categories, etc, please let me know.
Glad to be here. I look forward to chatting and sharing with you all.
Thanks a lot.

Welcome to iRV2, we’re really glad to have you here as a new member and are looking forward to reading your posts about your RVing experiences and adventures. You’ll find a great bunch of folks on this site who are very knowledgeable of RVing, the rigs we use, and the places we go in them.

Some of the folks who post in the Winnebago Industries Owner's Forum or the Vintage RV's forum may be able to help you with the engine cover. They’re eager to help and share their knowledge and experiences with others and should be along shortly with an answer.

Again, welcome to iRV2, we’re glad you joined.

Thanks alot. I finally figured it out. the double seat on the passenger side actually spins around a full 90 degrees when it is pulled ALL the way in the right direction and tugged on just a little at the back to coax it the rest of the way around. Voila, the engine cover comes right out.
Now to solve my non-start issue that I caused by hooking up the battery backwards ....
