Roof drain holes

I am the new owner of a 2018, 4018 DS. I have found the two front drain holes totally plugged up. With water sitting on top and no place to go but over the side.I was told you can use the air compressor and shoot air up from drain tube to clear them. Would like to ask what do other people do? Appreciate any ideas.

I have never tried from the bottom I always go at it from the top. I use the handy dandy tool I copied from someone on this forum attached to a garden hose.

During our factory pick-up I asked about this. Our tech had an air line with an inline pressure regulator. Set at 60psi, he said to go from the bottom up.

Thank you all I will try from the bottom with water as I do not yet have a ladder tall enough to get on the roof.
