Hello everyone...I own a Premier RS11 Diesel (D&H #20-20211-1 from the 2012-Volume 1 Catalog) that has been stored in its box for the past few years. I'd like to remove the shell so I can check the condition of the smoke unit wicking material. For the record, I'm pretty experienced doing this type of work on MTH engines, but have never done so on the RS11's specifically.
The six (6) body-mount screws are obvious and I have removed them. However, there are no body-mount screws (at least that I can see!) at the very end of the long hood. It appears that there is a "tab" at that end that locks the body shell to the frame. Assuming I'm correct, what is the best method to release that tab? I'm reluctant to apply much pressure to it in fear that I may break it off. Unfortunately, the owners' manual does not show or speak to this tab.
Does anyone here have experience with this...and if so, could you share your method here, please?
