Removing Instrument Dash Cluster--2005 Bounder Class A

Hello! I need to remove my instrument panel out of my 2005 Bounder to have the gauges rebuilt. Both the fuel and temp gauges have been acting up this past year, especially when it is cold.
--What all is involved to remove the instrument panel?
--Any recommendations for companies that rebuild these units/trade in for refurbished?

Wanted to get some tips before I just dive in.
Thank you, Mark

Typically, you just remove some screws and pull it out. There should be connectors that pull off the back. With that said, I believe Fleetwood used Actia dashes on the Workhorse chassis. In those years they were problematic.

If yours is a Workhorse Chassis, here's a link......

Thank you. Yes, it's a Actia dash on a workhorse chassis. OK...There are only 3 screws visible (module has 7 holes), so I assume that's all the use to mount the panel. I was hoping that I didn't have to remove the dash cover to expose more mounting screws. I guess I'll know right away after I remove the three screws. Wiring is so ugly underneath...hopefully the panels tilts to get to the harness through the opening in the dash.

Once you get the cluster out, send it to Ultra. They will fix it better than new. See here: www.urvp.com

From your photo, it looks like the three screws allow you to remove a cover plate, allowing access to the screws that actually hold it in place.
