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

Dealer charged $400 to clean out the dirt daubers.
My 2016 FC25 rear twin furnace looks completely different from your photo. I wonder how many different models they use?

Thanks!

The manual provided with the trailer says Atwood "hydro flame" AFM series then provides five different model numbers (D16-D35) Have no idea which one I have. Nothing on the outside of unit. Guess I would have to remove all the screws to get to the inside for further identification.

Just measure the minimum size rectangle needed to cover the vents and then pick the best screen option from their dimensions online.

That is pretty ridiculous. The screen I had put on the intake/exhaust of mine has at least 10 times the open area of the air intake itself. It was put on after dirt dobbers or something built a nest inside the intake where it couldn't be seen and caused the side of the trailer to be smoked up. As a safety concern, there is more danger from a malfunction caused by the bugs than the screen. Also, if Atwood can't design their furnaces to operate properly with something to exclude bugs they aren't very smart.

I went to the local hardware store today and bought some aluminum screen for $0.99. I cut it to fit the slotted area on the water heater door and the furnace door. I then took some pf the aluminum strands to tie the screen to the slots. This all took less than 30 minutes.
