With the retreat of warm weather in Florida lately and no need for air conditioning in the coach, I decided this weekend I would clean the so called a/c filter material in the ceiling return vents before the 80 degree temps return.

It is no problem for the vents throughout the majority of the roof ceiling, but in the main bathroom hall area there is a round vent which I was unable to remove. Took out the screws where the filter is, but I cannot remove the plastic housing around the vent where the filter is contained. Are any of you familiar with how I might get to this small filter?

Thanks in advance.

If it is like mine you have to pull hard in the middle of the louvered part and it will separate from the outer housing. The filter material has a whole in the middle.

Some maybe hard to pull out I have found if while you pull also turn the lovered vent and they have popped out for me, infact I do it now the same way for all of them. Every season as you clean them they will be easier to get out.

Chuck, do not remove the screws around the parameter of the housing. Get your fingers positioned on the grill fins so you can pull sraight down but with a little wiggle if necessary. They snap pretty hard. First time is scary.
