Penguin II cooling coil clean

We have 2015 22FB. Last weekend we stayed in a camp ground with a lot of cotton wood trees. We ran the AC all weekend. The cotton fuzz was everywhere. I am afraid the AC coil is full of the stuff. I tried to remove the 4 large head Philip head screws that appear to hold the cover on. They would not move with my Philips screw driver. It just slipped out. Any sugestions?

I have a 2010 22 Sport. I just replaced the A/C shroud because it had a large crack in it. The screws were pretty tight but i just leaned on the screwdriver until they gave up the fight! You might try another screwdriver with better bite so as not to strip the screw heads.

Thanks Mrucr! That gave me a idea. I used my 14 volt drill that has several torque settings for screws. Worked up the settings till they broke loose.
