AirWard Van's RV-10 - Baggage Compartment Access Cover Kit - Machine Screws
AirWard has developed a Kit to access the area under the Baggage Compartment Floor for Inspection, Installation/removal, of the two Entry/Exit Steps without having to remove the complete Baggage Compartment Floor. Due to the common problem of the Entry/Exit Steps, or Support Structures, cracking with repeated entry and exit of the aircraft, it is recommended that these Entry/Exit Steps be removed during Periodic Inspection for a though inspection of both the Entry/Exit Steps and the Support Structures.
The two Inspection Panels have an opening of 5" x 3 13/16" and placed on the Baggage Compartment floor over the area where the Entry/Exit Step Attach Bolts are located. This allows plenty of space for your hand to remove the bolts and nuts and inspect the area under the Baggage Compartment.
The Kit consists of the following:
2 - Reinforcing (Doubler) Plates - 7 1/8" x 6 1/8" - .040 Aluminum;
2 - Cover Plates - 6 1/8" x 5 1/8" - .040 Aluminum;
16 - K1000-08 - #8 Two Lug Anchor Nuts;
16 - AN526C832R6 Screw, Machine - #8 - 3/8" OL - Truss Head;
70 - AN426AD3-3.5 Rivet, Solid Countersunk;
