bird nests in air conditioner

I keep getting birds building nests in my air conditioner. Does anyone know of a cover of some type to keep birds out. I've got a 16' Bambi, 2015 with a Dominico (SP?) air conditioner. Looks like there's a opening on the side of the unit that's about 4x12 that's totally exposed where they are entering.

If there is a 4x12 opening large enough for a bird to get into, the shroud (the AC's plastic cover) has been damaged.
It is easily replaced. Only 4 screws hold it on.

Google "Dometic shroud"

Screen wire over the opening. It sounds like you might already be missing a screen or filter of some sort. Can you post a picture of what you are talking about?

Got the bird problem figured out. There are four openings on the bottom of the shroud large enough for a bird to get into. We took the shroud off, attached screen to the inside of the shroud and put it back on. Problem solved. No broken or missing pieces.

I had enough bird nest material in the air conditioner to fill a 5 gallon bucket.
