On my Beaver, the previous owner cut a square hole (about 3ft x 3ft( in the panel and put a piano hinge down one side, so now I can open the panel and access the components behind. some of the switches and the fill hose are on this swing out panel but all that stuff is flexible and swings with the panel when I open it.

Don't forget to have your waste tank drain hose connected, because something is likely to still be in the tanks, and you will need to manually open the slide (before removing it for replacement). If you coach is like mine, the drain slide mechanism is bolted to the drain pipe with four screws.

Our coaches should be similar, except for length.

Open the storage bay door opposite the wet bay. On our coach, that storage bay contains the batteries (rear section) and a storage area (front section). In the front section there is an access panel. It's 12 inches high and 18 inches wide. That's how I get to the valves.

You can remove the white panel in the wet bay, but probably you'll find the black water valve too far away to reach from that side.

It helps to be small-bodied to work through the access hatch.

Our coach was supposedly built with rod-operated valves. By the time we got it, it had cable-operated valves. I got so frustrated with them that I rebuilt the sewer piping. Now the drain valves are directly in front of me when I open the wet bay door. It was a lot f work, but well worth doing.
