Good day all,

I believe that my voltage gauge is not accurate (top row, left gauge). How do I remove the gauge? It looks like a ring around the outside but that would be too easy? Any suggestions?

Thanks and as always safe travels,

Those look like standard 2-1/8" gauges and are usually (but not always) held in with a U shaped piece of metal that fastens to 1 or 2 studs on the back of the gauge. you need access to the back of the gauge to remove it. See pic

Looks like you have six screws holding that panel in place. I'd pull those out and see if you get rear access. Some gauges are clip based and some are threaded nuts.

Some of the Monaco coaches have panels that you can remove on top to access behind the gauge cluster.

If not you will have to remove all the screws holding the dash in, in my case my dash goes all the way across toward the passenger side and is about 5' long. I remove all the screws and tip the dash forward. There is a risk that the dash can crack break, mine was broke when I bought my coach and some of the screw hole locations have cracked since then.

Yes, the dash I have is also one piece and it is also cracked at the screw holes by the previous owners, I'm the 3rd owner. I attempted to access the gauge from underneath and also the the panel I installed where I removed the original monitor, no way. I have the plug in charger that identified Volts and Amps so for the time being, I'll use that. I have a couple of additional questions that I have but that we be another post.

Thanks to all who responded.

Thanks again and as always safe travels,
