Under belly cover

Hi I am new to the forum and it seems like there are a lot of knowledgeable people here. I have already learned a few good tips! Has anyone ever removed the under belly cover on a Fifth wheel. I have a 2006 325BHS and I have a sag in one area and I want to get a look underneath the trailer. Thanks in advance for your response and I look forward to sharing with you all.

Welcome to the JOF, jayeagle12. I don't own a 5'er so I can't answer your question but I am sure someone will chime in.

If it is like our travel trailer the cover is just screwed on. If it has a sag it could be full of water so I would check it out.

Mine is sagging all over but I used an ice pick and punched some holes and found no water. Looks like they sorta wrapped it around external pipes and what not and didn't really make proper cut/fits. Then they filled the excess with spray foam. I have been in the fiver since October and I am going to take it in for some warranty issues when i get back to WV.

I removed a section on my 5th wheel to replace a valve on the black water tank last year. Putting the cover back on was not easy. Hard time lining up screws with original holes. And there were a lot of screws. No clue on what the sag is, but I would suggest following the advice of the folks above. Good Luck

Before pulling the cover, make marks on the cover aligning with marks on adjacent covers to help aligning it back up when replacing.
