Hinge on the dashboard

2000 AERBUS 3550 BSL. The dash has a Hinge . Removed the screw on the passenger side. Cannot find a screw on the drivers side. Is there a latch or other mechanism under the dash?

Years ago I had a 2003 40' Rexhall Rose Air and it too had a hinge (which by the way was a great idea) I found securing screws on the lower left side of the dash under and left of the steering column. I just left those screws out when I was done doing things under the dash and it didn't cause any rattles or problems. Made it much easier to raise the dash in the future.

I don't know how it is in those later rigs, but in my '95 Aerbus you must the vol around the steering column, then remove the little cable for shift position indicator, or you will break the cable when you lift the dash. FORD 460 F53 chassis

Ours just has 2 screws. 1 driver's side and 1 passenger. It's just that easy.

I have a RExhall 2000 vision and I can not find the screws that must be unscrewed in order to raise the dash. Can anyone tell me exactly where they are?

FIRST: If you look under your dash on the driver side you will see an "L" bracket that has a single screw that attaches the dash to the RV sidewall (driver side).

SECOND: On the right side (passenger side) of the instrument cluster upholstery, remove (pop it off) the upholstery button with a small flat blade screwdriver, and under that button is a screw, remove that screw.

That's it, lift the dash, prop it up with a dowl. Be mindful of not disconnecting any electrical connections. You will likely pull out the radio antenna so remember to plug it back in when you are finished.

Good luck.

It appears that if I just unsnap the upholstery doo-dad under the steering column, that the dash just lifts up - no screws. What a relief! I was able to repair the mouse eaten wires! Richard

This exactly, I just finished cleaning up the god aweful mess the viper install folks made prior to us buying it. Also found out that the little toggle switch with the red light did nothing, as it wasn't even hooked up. it now controls the radio ha. No longer need the key in the aux position to have tunes.

The gear shifter is in the way

When lifting the dash, do you need to drop the shift arm down to low gear or anything? 2004 Rexhall Vision F53..

Yes on my 2000 Rexair I have to un-snap the snaps by the steering wheel and tilt the wheel and pull down the gear shifter. As soon as you raise the dash put it back in park. Prop up with dowel rod. Watch not to unplug anything.
