Atwood Furnace Bug Screen

The wasps are attracted to the smell of propane. Happens mainly in storage. It's a common problem in Ca.

They build nests inside the appliance that makes them to malfunction or burn improperly

It's not about keeping wasps and dirt daubers out of the trailer.
It's about keeping them out of your water heater and furnace.

My 2016 furnace is different from your 2015, though similar. The exhaust vent is centered in the shiny part and no louvers above as in yours. The dealer recommended these screens and we have dirt daubers here in NW Georgia. Dealer in FL did not have them in stock so went to Camping World and they said the did not have them for the 2016 Atwood.

Frankly Frank, sorry to be so stupid. I have read some of your comments before and please don't feel like you need to answer any of my ignorant questions in the future.

Thanks to everyone else. Much appreciated!

Dave

I also need to get the heater vent screen from Amazon. But, here's what I did for the water heater and two fridge doors. I bought a small roll of metal screening from the local hardware store, cut to fit each door, and glued to the inside of each door with clear silicone.

Just by looking at the screens one can see that 'that' is so much 'Hooey'!
I have them on my Cloud (s), and previous Hi'Lo, and no problems at all.

Another case of a 'no nothing' throwing his weight around ' to no good purpose.��
I do not know where you got that information about CSA but in Quebec you can find them everywhere

That works!.

Clear silicone is also used in the CRJ jet to fasten temp sensor wire to the front wing spar.
I've used it to fasten large mesh window screen to my Maxx-Airrs and inside the Air conditioner housing to keep birds and bugs out.

The C in CSA stands for Canada and last time I checked Quebec was still part of Canada. Unless you can come up with valid information from CSA I have to think that your assertion is hooey as you say so well.

And as for getting your information from Ontarioans you might want to multiply your sources and check your facts before presenting an urban legend as a fact.

I have a 2016 Flying Cloud 28 and cannot find anything that even looks close to fitting the furnace and the manual is no help at all.

These are really nice and well made and fit the water heater perfectly http://www.mud-dauber.com/screens.htm (W100 for 6 gallon). However their M200 is supposed to fit the furnace but doesn't come close.

Anybody know where to go to get one that will fit?

Dealer charged $400 to clean out the dirt daubers.
