Water heater/furnace, maintenance, Northpoint 315rlts

I have a 2017 Northpoint 315RLTS and would like to change the heating element and do some basic maintenance on the furnace including cleaning. Is there any trick to getting to them? They are both behind the outside wall and it looks like I have to take the entire water heater panel (wiring/gas) loose to take out the water heater and then somehow get the furnace out which is above the water heater. Does anyone know a better or easier way. This seems like a horrible design in the Northpoints. I like to do yearly maintainance and I am way overdue on these 2 units.

you need to go into the basement and remove the wall in order to remove your furnace!

Thanks, I was afraid of that. And even after you remove the wall you still have all the hoses from the Nautilus system in the way. Real bad design from Jayco.l

Yes, be very careful of the water bay hoses and connections.... every time I had to work on our water of the water connections for the Nautilus wet bay would start leaking...
