Exclamation How do I clean refer vent

I have a '77 argosy and need to clean the refrigerator vent. I do not think it has been done in the past 33 years. The vent on the roof is riveted on and there does not seem to be much access from the bottom. Has anyone got an idea of how best to approach this??

The best way IMHO is to remove the refrigerator. Then you can clean and adjust the burner and vacuum the coils on the back of the refrigerator and clean the hot air vent from the bottom. Also the space where the refrigerator was will be full of dust etc.

Yes taking the refer out then get the Vacume cleaner on it. There are probably 4 screws in the front, the gas line, a 110 plug, and tape the 12 volt wires so they don't blow a fuse, if there are any.
