How do you access the engine in a class a motor home with a Ford v-10 engine with a doghouse in the cab between the driver and passenger seat?

Either from below, or thru the wheel wells, or from above by removing the doghouse.

There should be several bolts on each side of the doghouse that secure it. They may be hard to find in the carpeting.

Remember carefully how you removed the doghouse. They are harder to reinstall.

About all that's done without pulling the doghouse is routine maintenance. Even from under mine work, learn to pull the doghouse. After it's done a couple times you won't be afraid of pulling it. Watch the bolts holding it down they MAYBE different lengths so need back in the same holes, only if different. Lining it backups really not an issue, a Phillips screw driver will help aligning it two's better one on each side. Get a bolt started and more to the other side, same routine. With two started the rest should drop in. (Prior Ford/Lincoln/Mercury mechanic - yes it's been awhile but mechanics don't change)
