Bathroom / shower exhaust fan

Is it possible to remove the screens on the fans for cleaning.

Yes. Remove handle which is secured by screws, then pull them. Dead insects will land on your face, so wear glasses and keep your mouth shut. Old tooth brush will help get lint, etc.

it was kinda of tight getting the screws to the handle loose, we normally drag an air hose into the trailer and open the vent and blow the screens clean.

This advice unfortunately does not work for those of us with the ducted air system. Because of the lowered ceiling you cannot get to the screws to remove the handle! You either have to get to the screen from the roof by removing the vent cover and then vacuuming it out, or follow Foiled Again's advice using compressed air. If you are ever unlucky enough to break the handle you actually have to remove the fan from the roof to replace the handle!

I use a can of computer air. It is a lot easier than dragging an air hose into the trailer.

I bought one of these: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

which I use instead of canned or compressed air. I even use it to blow off my glasses after washing them. One of the great handy devices of the times.
