If your coach is like mine and has the closet in the rear with sliding doors you will have to remove the doors and take up the cross member at the bottom with the door track. It is a pain the first time and we have since modified it so removal is easier. On our coach the screws that hold down the extra panel were buried in the carpet and hard to find. With the main hatch removed reach up under the small panel and feel for the screws. They are long and you should be able to feel them extending down into the engine area. Sadly, even with that additional hatch removed access to the fan area and rear of the radiator are still difficult.
We found that when replacing our exhaust manifold gaskets and coolant hoses that it helps to have a board to lay across the hatch opening. You can rest your chest on the board and that frees up both hands to reach down to work. Another tip is to purchase a canvas painters drop cloth and lay it out over the engine hatch opening. Then take a knife or scissors and cut out the area where the hatch is. Leave about two or three extra inches of canvas to fall down around the opening. That will keep the bedroom floor from getting soiled and help your marriage.
Just reread your post and to get to the turbo and portion of the exhaust manifold that connects to the turbo you do not need to remove that extra hatch. On our coach the turbo is in plain view when the main hatch is open. In the photo you can see the turbo just in front of my right foot. In the far right you can see the closet cross member with door track that is over the extra engine hatch. When that hatch is removed a portion of the rubber hatch seal for the main hatch is also removed.
