i just recently purchased a 1995 holiday rambler vacationer W/460. Like i needed something to work on a 61. anyway, attemped to change A/F after changing engine oil, filter, genny oil filter and A/f.
could not get the filter out as half was in the doghouse and the other half under the hood.it appeared to be a right tight squeeze. does anyone have any experience at this or just go to a forf dealer? thanks

Mine is the same ('97 Bounder) It's easier if you have a manual so you can see which bolts/screws hold the thing in, but you basically need to remove the air hoses and the top of the filter cage to get at the filter. You will skin a few knuckles removing the four or more screws while laying flat on top of the engine through the doghouse. good luck.

I think I'm remembering that two of the screws are reached from out front.

thanks for your input. you were right. i had to disconnect the two big air lines on top of the intake that go into the end of the housing as well as two more going into the side of the housing. also had to disconnect two hoses going to heater.
quite a job just to change air filter.
