Generator Drain Plug Cover Clearance Issue

2018 Alante 26X
Getting ready to change my generator oil when I noticed the the access hole in the frame doesn't appear to be big enough to remove the generator oil drain cover. Looks like there isn't enough clearance in the frame hole to get the screws out?
See JPEG picture attached
Anybody have this problem?
Thanks for reading

Looks like somebody had them out. One is phillips and one looks like it uses a Robertson bit.

Optical Illusion, both are Robertson bit.
I bought used with 3400 miles on it and 28 hours on the Genny. I don't think the oil has been chained.

If they were original I think they would be green and I don't remember ONAN using Robertson screws, mine were phillips. You should also only need to remove one and spin the cover.
