Rodent died in my Heater ducts?

We have a 2014 Bayhill 320RS 5th wheel camper.

During our last camping trip in March 2016, we turned on our propane furnace because the night got very cold. After a few minutes a terrible and nauseating smell of burnt flesh came from the bedroom heating vent. It smelled as if some animal got into the heater and died there.
The heater appears to be located somewhere under the bathroom floor but there is no access. Must we remove the wall from inside the storage area to get to the heater?
Can anyone give me advise as to how to remove the remains and the smell?
