Windsport 29M Battery

Hello,
2018 Windsport 29M. Looking under the engine hood and thinking about the future. How does one remove the engine battery from this RV? Seems really wedged in there and hard to envision removing the backside nut for the bracket that holds it down ( short of going in through the dash under the passenger deck). Any experience? Guidance?
Thanks.

That is exactly how your remove the battery. Remove the desk top there should be a cut out to remove or cut your own.

I have a Hurricane 29M and my battery is pretty accessible through the front. A long extension fits down on the bolt and while tight, the battery comes out. No desk top cut out in my coach.
