    Hoping someone can help here, and tell me what I am doing wrong. I have a 2000 Coleman Sedona I bought laspart t month, and I am trying to remove the AC Shroud. There is quite a bit junk inside of it (pine needles, dirt, mud dabber nests), and it could use a good cleaning removed the 4 screws on top, and the two side screws. I can lift the back up quite a bit, but the front feels stuck, I can move it a little but it won't come up more than 1/4 of an inch. Should it come a part in two pieces or one?

    The shroud WILL come apart into two pieces, but will also come off as one piece. Try sliding it forward before lifting - there is a lip in the leading edge of the AC that the shroud grabs.

    Depends on the year and model, the one on my 2008 Niagara is 2 pieces, the one on my 96 Bayport was one piece.

    I ended up getting it off today, and it came off in 1 piece. Was a huge wasp nest in it, and a lot of debris as well. I vacuumed the unit and washed and dried the shroud. It looks really good now. Couldn't get the side fins cleaned (I was worried about snapping them) as well as the rest of it.

    Glad you got it worked out - I apologize for my misinformation. I have a Mach 3 as well but it has a front and rear piece. They sure do look nice when you get them all cleaned up. They'll take a coat of paint really well too (especially if you hit them with a little acetone before hand). Last year I started the same as you - just wanted to get the cover off and give it a good clean. I ended up with this (before and after):

    Thanks for the paint idea, and yours looks really good.
