Access to engine

We have a '16 34QS and I can't find access to the top of the engine. I've removed two screws and can't find others...I know they are there...somewhere in the closet or next to the bed. Any ideas?

My layout is different... but maybe the same design "philosophy" applies...

After removing the screws I have to slide the hatch rearward about an inch and THEN the aft edge lifts up. There's a lip that holds the front edge in.

Maybe this helps.

Only 2 screws in my RB. But getting it unstuck the 1st time was a bitch.
Tile floor BTW.

My Palazzo probably has an access under my bed platform, though I've never had any reason to actually see - maybe I will now ; ) (mine is carpeted, though, nice)

There's some maintenance required eventually, a filter to change on top from what I'm told. Yes, ours is carpeted with only the two screws holding it down so I'm anxious to find a way to slide the cover after removing them.

decided to finally look for mine today, after 4 1/2 years and over 92,000 enjoyable miles, although I've HEARD it many times...

below the front-facing master bed platform,
under the carpeted storage area...
remove 5 screws and the plywood access piece...
to 'see' the engine... wow, I DO have one!

it's dusty, but it still works.

[this may be one of the few diesel coach floorplans that don't have the typical 'step up' near the rear of the coach, or in the rear bath or rear closet, as our headboard is at the rear of the coach, and the bed is essentially right over the engine.]
