Are you talking the fresh air vent or the exhaust vent?
If it is the exhaust vent I would remove them the best you can from the outside then fire up the furnace to see if it works properly.

Had the same problem on another rv I owner. Got real exciting when I fired up the furnace! First thing I do now, with any RV I get is purchase a screen to cover the exhaust vent to prevent critters getting in and making a home.

the fresh air exhaust is one through vent . though it does go through the heat exchanger . i would break out the mud . then use air to try and blow the debris out . you may get lucky

Yes, as High Desert posted you need to get the screens for the exhaust vent.
