Furnace- Suburban NT-30K disassembly

I have the unit out and would like to troubleshoot it, but I cant figure out how to disassemble the F-er. The outside case is welded at the seams. There is a bulkhead metal wall in the middle of the unit and it seems things are screwed to this?
Anyone remember how they got theirs apart?

Remove the elbow and any fittings that stick through the metal cover. I think you remove a sheet metal screw or two on the side facing the inside of the trailer. You can usually pull the entire guts out from the outer metal cover. You need to also unplug the electrical wires from the right side. This can even be done with it in the trailer and bolted down if you are good.

Thanks Perry.
That part I got. I had the unit out on a table.
Its getting the insides out of that enclosure
that I have problems with. There seems to be
no obvious way of getting it apart.

Im starting to get an urge to put my hands
around the designers neck and start asking
him questions directly. lol
Its like they don't want anything serviced.
