I don't know what type of MH you have or if it is the same as mine. I have a catch very close to the carpet in the front center. It is very hard to find the hole due to the carpet on the dog house. I turn the catch with an allen wrench. Once the latch is released the dog house just lifts off. Mine is a 98 Winnebago.

Hi,

I have a 97 Bounder, and perhaps they changed things over the years.

Under the small cabinet on the doghouse, I remove both drawers, then there are two wing nuts to remove, and it comes off. Remember what drawer is top and bottom.

Two latches allow the doghouse to flip up, and the front hinges do come apart. On mine, there are some fairly difficult to see clips to remove, then the pins will slide out to the side. This allows complete removal of the cover.

I would cover the hole with a large blanket and perhaps some plywood, to keep out racoons and such, and prevent snow from blowing in.

Then you can take the cover indoors to work on it anytime.

A friend of mine decided to replace the somewhat fireproof engine doghouse insulation on his older class C with something new. Well it was not fireproof, or even fire resistant, though the fire went out quickly when we sprayed water on it! Later we installed air ductwork insulation with metal spacers near where the exhaust manifold was closest to the doghouse.

So hopefully the insulation that you are looking at is designed to be put under the hood. I tested a small peice of insulation with a BBQ starter, and it would not light up after the flame was applied for about 15 seconds. The new insulation I used was 1-1/2" air duct insulation that is UL rated for flame spread and self-extingushing ability.

I did the same thing with insulation on my 2006 Bounder. Remove the screws and the doghouse lifts off. I also insulated inside the panel below the dash on the passenger side. It does make a difference and the noise level is lower.
