Question for all you Class A Owners

How is the engine repaired in a Class A? The coach is built around the engine.

THere is a 'dog house' on the inside of the coach that can be removed to access the engine. I don't know what it would all entail to have to actually pull the motor in one of these, but I also haven't heard anyone experiencing a catastrophic failure either.

You would have to work really hard to ware out or destroy a Ford V 10. They are about as bulletproof as anything is nowadays.

An older one that saw on a Workhorse chassis had the entire front cap removed and the engine pulled from the front.

From IRV2:

Our dealership always used a garage for engine changes. They would jack up the front, remove the suspension, and drop the engine out the bottom. They said it was by far the easiest way.
