Does anyone know how to remove the engine air intake grill on the side of the motorhome? I thought it was attached by allen screws but it almost looks like rivets. I don't want to damage anything so I thought I would ask first.

Welcome to FMCA!
My air intake grill is screwed in place on my older unit.
Think this is a case where a picture or two could be worth 1000 words, so if you can attach a photo or two.

Unfortunately this site has a 500kb limit for attachments. My pictures are 2mb. The more I look the more I am convinced they are rivets. They are round with a small round center piece. No way to to unscrew, etc. There is no accessing from behind as the section is sealed from below.
Appreciate your time...

If they are rivets, shouldn't be an issue to drill them out and re-rivet it.

Why do you need to take the grill off?

Eddie, from you description it sure sound like its riveted in place.
I have to remove mine from time to time to repaint the grill. Never been able to get a seal on the back surface to keep it from rusting and spreading to the front area.
