removing a/c from 81 excella2 31ft

In order to remove the a/c ceiling shroud I first must remove an extrusion. In order to remove the extrusion it looks as though I must remove the ceiling lockers on both sides and maybe the walls too. There are no exposed rivets or screws on the extrusion. Has anyone delt with this set up?

In ours, if you remove the screws holdong the interior shroud in place, you can slide it out from over the brace that holds the curtain. Have you tried this?

Hi,

You obviously (from the photos) have a Coleman unit. Had them in both of my AS’s. The bottom cover is attached with 2 Phillips screws exactly down the centerline, near the front and rear (doesn’t really matter which way you are facing, it is symmetrical). 2 screws only. The lower unit is attached with 4 bolts with a size from another time/space dimension. Be prepared to take them off with uncovenantal measures. One of my bolts was bent at least 30 degrees. It had to be snapped off.

I have tried removing it and with that bar across the bottom there is only about a one inch drop. The shroud must be able to drop enough to clear the knob "pegs". There is no sliding it to the front or back

I now have a bloody knuckle to prove that short of cutting the thing in half it is there to stay. The extrusion must go. The pic is deceiveing, the shroud extends just beyond the bar. It must be able to drop down in order to clear the inner workings of the a/c.
