Doghouse removal

Trying to remove the doghouse from a 2005 Voyage 38J. I found the rear latch. Where are the 2 screws in the front. I can't seem to find them under the carpet. My eyes ain't what they used to be. Thanks

Try using a magnet to find the screws.

I'm on the road. I pass a harbor freight tomorrow, I guess I can stop in. Gives me an excuse to spend more money.

My 2005 Winnebago / Itasca only has one hex-nut access (large hex wrench required), then lifts up and then pulls out from the front-sides of the engine bay. No other screws or latches on my Workhorse chassis. -RT

Almost if not all come from the factory with a self tapping screw on each side close to the dash. If you bought yours new, maybe the screws were missed at the factory.

I have the rear latch that takes a 5/16th allen wrench as well as the 2 screws at the front. Not sure if the screws are original or not. They have different washers on them.
Hope you get it open.

My next question for the group lol. I just bought this rv. While checking it out I discovered that the house batteries were replaced but only 1 was tied in. I found the jumper cables in one of the drawers. What's the proper way to tie the 2 together so I don't fry everything?

I'm guessing they are 12 volt batteries, so just hook the cables positive to positive and the other cable negative to negative. Good idea to charge them up well before you head out. A 15 0r 20 amp outlet will be fine as long as you don't use the AC or any other heavy loads.
Good idea to load test the batteries after they are fully charged. The one that wasn't hooked up may be bad.
