interior panel or exterior panel?

Exterior, usually just remove four screws, one in each corner, then work the cover off. Sometimes there is a tube within a tube that needs to be slid out.

Interior, you'll have to wait for someone familiar with that particular RV. There's usually not much that can be accessed from the inside. Most components are accessed from the outside.

Accessing my furnace

If its an old Atwood furnace, I believe the access panels were sealed with an RTV sealant to keep water out. Im guessing youd have to pry very, very carefully to get it open.
Hopefully someone with a Cameo will chime in soon.

On edit, this is what I was thinking about. Take a look at pg 5 of this manual. Hope it helps.

There has to be backside access where the ducting was connected. But specific for your model. Find it on the outside, then start peeling back the layers on the inside.....

I helped a friend work on his 2008 Cameo. We access the furnace from the front storage compartment, by removing the rear basement walls.

Furnace has to exhaust to the outside so it must be on an outside wall. On mine and all I have worked on, remove 8 screws holding the cover on. Remove gas line. Disconnect 12 v olt wiring. Remove one screw in center and slide out. The duct work is attached to the shell of the unit. No need to pull it out.
