Dometic RM 1350 Refrigerator

Does the refrigerator need to be completely pulled out in order to clean the burner flue tube and flue baffle?

No it can be blown out with compressed air from the outside access panel.

The manual for the Dometic RM 1350 states to pull the flue baffle out use a flue brush, clean the flue from the top. Blow- ing compressed air into the flue will not properly clean soot and scale out of the flue tube. When I remove the upper vent cover, there is a piece of plywood, I guess, is used as a baffle covering a lot of the opening. With a mirror, I can see the top of the baffle where it would be pulled from. My thinking is to remove the upper vent frame, but am not sure if I would be able to move the plywood out of the way. I am hoping that someone that has a Sanibel of a unit installed in a slide can give me some tips on how to properly access and clean the flue.
