Air filter removel

I recently purchased a 1998 Bounder MH. I have been catching up with maintenance,but I can't figurer out how to open the air breather box to remove the filter. It is a p30 chevy chassis with a fuel injected 454. It has a long inlet tube that runs from the intake to just to the right of the radiator were it inters a black box. I would guess that the filter is in this. From there it continues on to just behind the grill. I think this last part of the intake is a silencer. Do any of you know how to get into the filter box? Thanks for your help.

Replacing a air fillter on a chev. 454.

Now thats great that you should ask because I just got through replacing mine.
I have a 1997 36' Dolphin M.H. with a 454 fortect engine.
To open up the area where the fillter is located is just where you said it was you may have to get under the fender and if you look up to the top of the box you will see three metal pup ups, once you un snap those the back of the box will open up and you will have accest to the fillter.
Now I don't know if it a paper fillter or a metal one.
I have a Banks system on my M.H. so which ever one you have you will be able to replace it.
If its a Banks you will need to buy a K & E RECHARGER KIT.
because you can always use it all you have to do is clean it and the directions in the E & K package will exsplain it to you.
Just a thought.

Terry, thanks for your response. I was afraid that the clips may be on the top. I can't see the the top of the box because it is so close to the engine compartment. Hopefully I can get a finger up there to flip the clips. I will probable buy the Banks air intake system instead of replacing just the filter.
