How to get plumbing out of inner skin

I have a 68' Tradewind, I am removing everything and the inner skin to re-wire and re-insulate. I have a pvc pipe that goes up the wall(curved) and then exits through the skin to a vent outside. How do i remove this without cutting the pipe (if possible)

Here's a link to see what i'm talking about. http://f2.pg.photos.yahoo.com/jeepinaudiophile

Question ????

jeepin,
no picture at the link you posted. But it is no big deal to cut a "plastic" pipe and then when you are ready to replace it just use a coupler and the correct type of glue.

Mine was flexible enough to bend and get out, it only went through the roof a couple of inches.

In my (older) model, the vent pipe was polyethylene. Bends a lot easier to fit the curve of the roof. Would you consider replacing the PVC with polyethylene?

it may already be the polyethylene... it's pretty thin and seemingly flexible... Did it just pull downward out of the vent, or do i have to take the vent off from the outside and disassemble it from there?

I pulled down and it came out. OTOH, it would not be a bad idea to replace the gasket under the vent, they are one of the big leak sources. Take your choice.

woohoo!!! thanks all, argosy, you were right, it just pulled out... I had to cut it low on the straight so i could attatch it later then it just twisted and wiggled right out. 3 minutes later, i had the top panel of the inner skin off and out of the trailer. I can't believe how the mice get EVERYWHERE... I love this forum, thanks for all your suggestions.
