Furnace Preventative Maintenance

I have been accomplishing the preventative maintenance on my 2013 Sanibel 3500 and have a question as to what others are doing for preventative maintenance on the furnace. I vacuum all ducts as far as I can access with a vacuum cleaner. I pulled the wall in the storage compartment and cleaned all the dust around the area and check all supports. I cannot find access to the burner, ignition components, or combustion chamber. I have check all access points from the storage compartment and under the stairs. Anyone out there have any info on this?? Furnace is operating properly and I don't notice any soot buildup at the exhaust port on the side of the 5th wheel.

If you don't already have it- install bug screens on the outside exhaust vent
and forget it!
Sounds like you're good to me!
