Forest River A/C Housing

I need to remove my a/c housing to check on the roof seal. I have removed the 4 bolts holding the housing to the cooling unit but I can't seem to detach the 2 pieces of the housing.

There are small built-in push-down holders or "clips" but these do not seem to release the front and back sections. It can't be lifted straight up because of the front nose design that holds the front section in place....

I wonder if they are glued together or maybe i am just babying these holders for fear of breaking something....

Any suggestions? Garry

What a/c unit do you have ? Year?

My 2011 13.5k has at least 10 screws holding cover on.

It's a 2010 Mini-Lite; 4 screws only and these came out easily. It's the two sections of the housing that won't come apart, thanks for your speedy reply though! Garry

If it is like my Coleman, I just took the 4 bolts out then lifted it up backend first then slid the cover forward and it came right off. You have to work at it abit but it does come off pretty easliy.

Aren't there some screws along each side? Mine has several but I'm still not sure what model AC you have. Try downloading the installation manual.

Is it ok to get on the roof of a rockwood roo 17? I have to work on my ac unit because the fan has seized but I am not sure if the roof will hold me.
