I did what I could to keep critters out of my last camper too, including screens on the inside of my bumper caps with hot glue.

For the fridge I used a couple of tacks to help hold the corners (hot glue probably would have been fine I suppose)

Only other really odd place I've had them attempt to build, is inside of a gray tank vent pipe on the roof. Has only happened on 1 out of 8 rigs. Talk about irritating hearing that buzzing inside the walls. On that rig, I did pull the vent tops and screen the top, but, have never had that happen again, so haven't screened any more vents.


Have also had them build in between the inner / outer wiper seals, but not much you can do there. In that case, I just had fun with the electric fly swatter every time they came back with more mud. Eventually got them all.


I can second what Force / Tom did on the water heater. Had I not had spare screens laying around to fit our WH, I would have done that with the aluminum screen and heat tape.


Some go as far as screening the inside of the AC shroud on the roof. They can do a number on the fan, coils or anything else up there. Being we live in ours, the blower gets run every night, so they steer clear of it.

Camping world has the screens for the new atwood water heaters.

You referring to the new atwood furnaces or water heaters? I know sometime last year they hadn't put the new furnace screens on the market yet.

I didn't see it at camping world online, but here's the link on Camco's site:
Flying Insect Screen for Atwood AFMD Models - Camco
Should say for Atwood AFMD models, P/N 42155. A quick google search pulls up a few vendors for them.

P/N 42155, assuming your furnace looks like this, referring to the chrome vent to the right.

I was at the dealership back in December and noticed that they had the Camco 42155 in stock, price was cheaper with tax than online so I snatched one up for my 2016 26BH.

It surrounds the entire vent housing that is exposed on the outside the TT, however, the bottom of the vent housing is tight to the lower trim on the fiberglass siding models (I am not sure about the aluminum siding), so the bottom of the screen is lifted away from the fiberglass about an 1/4". Doesn't seem like it will be a big deal, but it's not perfect. It is held in place with a spring. I am not sure that I will travel with it on, don't want it to move around and rub the fiberglass siding or paint on the trim.

Maybe some sort of narrow foam strips with the sticky back between the edge of screen and the fiberglass will take up the space and not allow it to move around??

Below are some pictures of the fit.

When I picked up my new camper, I asked the dealer to install all insect vent. Check with your dealer and they will help you.

That's kinda frustrating there, Duke_26. The 42155 fit perfectly on my 23RLSW, but I don't have the added challenge of that trim seam right below the vent. Also, I just added Camco 42149 screens for the vent louvers on my Dometic refrigerator. Installation was easy, took about 15 minutes.

Yes, it is a little frustrating. I was thinking about this last night and thought that maybe some of that flexible edging on the edge of the screen just on the section above the trim would take up the gap and help keep the metal screen from damaging the TT siding/trim?

I also put the refrigerator screens in the same day, worked perfectly.

Thinking I might add a piece of aluminum screen on the inside of the water heater door with some heat tape to take care of those vent openings, I saw this posted in another thread and thought it was a good idea.
