Has Anyone had this problem?

I have earwigs in the A/C compartment. It appears that the little critters got into the H2O drain tube behind the wheel and worked their way up the tube to the A/C. Now I need to find a way to make sure they are out of the A/C and my trailer and then keep them out. Any ideas out there?
Thanks
jjustice

Blow out the drain tube with some compressed air? from the top down, maybe a shot of raid into the bottom of the tube (I wouldn't cover the tube end with screening as it may clog), those are the first two things that come to mind...

I would call Kirk and ask for his advice in dealing with those things!

Any place that is dark and holds moisture is home to earwigs. I am always amazed how many get into private water supply wells that are not equipped with vermin proof caps. Who knows maye a campground or two still has one of those old style well caps

The advice about clearing your drain tube is a good idea. Turn the AC power off , then pull down your AC lower unit and clean it out, may as well do the filters while you're at it. You can check the duct but probably will not fin anything there. Be sure to check for condensate leaks. Earwigs do not stay in areas that are only occasionally moist, something may be holding moisture.
