Rooftop AC Maintenance (Dust Cleaning)

Can anyone point me to previous threads on how to take apart and clean the Dometic Penguin II roof top units (which what i believe our 2014 MADP 4369 came with)? Photos are huge plus!

I searched and searched and the same thread comes up but it's not quite what i need. I was thinking there must be a good step by step on how to blow out the coils or rads and whatever else needs cleaning up top on the forum? Dometics manuals leave a lot to be desired!

I know we have to pull and wash the interior ducting foam filters, but I believe there is a regular maintenance requirement to keep the stuff up top free of dust...and man, did we encounter dust out west this summer on the road LOL...

Thanks gents!

Hey guys, can I assume that the a/C shrouds are light enough for a female to lift off? After seeing that great link I think I can do that. Would a mild solution of Dawn soap work? I use it for a lot of things besides dishes.
007, thank you again for saving the day! Hope the Mrs 007 is doing better.

What about vacuuming it up with a round brush attachment? Will that work?
