Insect screen for 2012 Jayflight 26bh

I am having trouble trying to figure out which screen to get for my furnace, I purchased this one today as the dealer told me this is the one I need, only to find out it does not fit, upon investigation I found out I have a Atwood hydroflame furnace, looking these up on the internet they match up to these screens which is not what my exhaust looks like, the picture on the package for the one I bought looks like what I have, the picture for the one for the hydroflame does not look like my exhaust, any help would be appreciated.

I just went out and looked at mine (although it is a 2009)...and I think it is this model -

Camco Hydroflame

It is a single round cover over the vent.

Hi jacko147, I have the same trailer and really struggled to get the correct one. After purchasing and returning 2 the 3rd one fit.

Camco 42144

Based on the description seems wrong, hence the third one I tried, but trust me it fits. You do need to squeeze it just right to get the 4 corners into the screen but it works.

These are the only ones I see that would work, thanks for the replies!

As long as your at it install some screening on the inside of the water heater and fridge vents too. Nothing special, regular aluminum screening from the hardware store sold by the foot will do just fine. I did have to do a little creative bending/folding to get the screen to fit the fridge vents just right and hot glued them into place. DW thinks I'm nuts but I didn't want any nests built anywhere so I hot glued a little square if screen on the inside of my bumper plugs too.

That, my friend, is dedication!

I did the refrigerator using these, they worked perfect, easy to install. I forgot about the hot water heater until I got nearly all the way home from the dealer, I will be purchasing those when I return the furnace cover.

Wow it must have been late when I typed the massage last night, what i typed sounds pretty incoherent...at least the part number I typed is correct.

As for the fridge vents and water heater vent you can buy bulk screen and glue/zip tie it in place, or you can use the manufactured screens I used. The manufactured ones were just easier for me and not crazy expensive.

Water heater = Camco 42145
Fridge = Camco 42148
