Cleaning Blades of Fantastic Fan

Hi folks,
Did a search for this topic but didn't come up with anything specific for our problem.

I am trying to clean the blades on our Fantastic Fan (after 2 weeks in a very dusty climate). I can take off the inner screen, unscrew the centre screw that holds the blade to the shaft, but when I try and pull the blades down they get caught on the housing inside the trailer. I have looked at YouTube and most videos just show people pulling the fans straight down - can't do it on the Airstream.

Do I have to get up on the roof and undo the motor mounts? Hope not.

Any suggestions, hints would be greatly appreciated.

FF blade removal

We had a 2017 23D and now a 2019 FC25 and the fan blades come right out. Remove inner screen, remove center screw, blade slides right off. I just went outside to eyeball our fans in the 2019 FC25 just to see if I could see where you might be having an issue, but no joy.

Can you get the blade loose from the shaft or is there not enough clearance?

Possibly a call to Fantastic Fan, there number is in the book that came with your AS. Have your model number handy. Maybe your fans were designed a bit different. Good luck.
