Panel Damage at furnace exhaust

So i'm getting large amounts of scratches to the panel on account of the furnace exhaust cover I believe. I think it slides around while towing.

Regardless, it of how/why it seems to have damaged the clearcoat and is either badly scratched and/or badly scratched and exacerbating filiform corrosion.

My question is can I remove the furnace exhaust cover? I mean, i assume it's really only there to keep people from burning themselves, right?

looks like this...

You could only keep it on while storing/parked. Mud dabbers love building a nest in opens like that.

Ive just noticed the exact same problem. I installed the screen to manage mud dabblers, but now think it should be installed only when my AS is in storage. Of course now the damage is done to this area. The real question is this damage filiform and if so can it be cleaned or other wise fixed?

That's a bug screen, it's only meant to keep bugs out. It'll get just as hot as the furnace outlet, so you can get burned by it, as well.
