Anybody ever pull the overhead vents for cleaning? They get kind of cruddy after a while and just wiping them down just doesn't get all.

If they are like the ones on the Adventurer we have and do remove them every 6 months. They have four screws in each vent...
The Misses soaks them in the sink and uses a small toothbrush to get in between the pivot points... The floor vents for the Gas Furnace we removed them when we bought the Coach, bought some screening and cut to fit when the vent was put back in... Catches a lot of stuff before it gets in the duct work...

No visible screws on these vents. I'm going to have to see if there is actually a cover plate with screw attachements underneath. I just hope these things aren't glued in.

My bet is they snap in like on the Mountain Air. If Winnebago used glue they would have falling out by now!

I was going to call Winnie but with the long weekend I thought I would put it up here. I'll check with them next long stop, just not to mess them up.

Hey Trek, that was cute.

How would one go about cleaning the ducts?
Lots of dingy crud can accumulate, including mold spores.
