Removing rear lower fascade?

2000 ultimate advantage

How hard is it to remove the rear fiberglass bumper? Simply unbolt, or more to it?

Trying to get to the ac vent to seal leaks…

Where my A/C ductwork was leaking I could place metal duct tape over the leaks with a 3' dowel rod. It isn't pretty, but doesn't leak.
I had to remove the metal plate attached at the right of the motor access door and coolant overflow bottle.

I've read old posts were they were able to loosen the rear cap but leave the top seal intact, pull it open enough for a slim person to slide up between cap and back wall to re-tape the ductwork.
I doubt that would work if the ductwork is broken/leaking near the top though. Somewhere back years ago a member posted pictures of removing the rear cap and patching the ductwork. As it remember the cap was very heavy and hard to handle using multiple people.

My rv has a separate upper cap, and lower valence. Lower valence is about 3 feet tall. Plan was to take off the lower valence/bumper, and reach up as high as I can. Was curious how involved taking that lower valence off was…

That cap comes off pretty easily. the hardes part on my rig (06 joirney) was that i had to loosen up the panels on each side of the coach that are just ahead (foward) of the back lower cap. ther are about four screws that hold the outer edge in place ' I had the same project a few years back aand i used a combination of spray foam and aluminum duct tape. keep at it untill you do not feel any cold air escaping. Pay particular attention to the connection of the elbow where it connects to the air conditioner.
