Atwood Furnace Bug Screen

I have a 2016 FC with the Atwood furnace. I have not been able to find the wasp/bug screen to fit this anywhere. Also could use one on the water heater vent door. Anyone know where to find these?

Thanks!

Dave

Try calling Colonial Airstream parts department. When we bought our 2014 FC from them, I asked their parts staff what is a recommended accessory for a newbie with a new trailer - and they suggested the wasp/bug screens. Which we bought.

I ordered mine from Camping World online. I've also found these on Amazon. Just make sure you know the configuration of your furnace as there are two or three different screens for the various models of furnace.

Google and Amazon are your best friends for darn near anything,

I see from other posts the question has been answered....What I don't understand is why doesn't Airstream put these on new trailers automatically? I can halfway understand why my vintage trailer didn't have one but there is no excuse for the trailer manufacturer not to put these on every trailer that goes out their door.

Atwood does not recommend them. They say they may reduce air flow. But I have them and have had no problems.

In Canada they are getting hard to find; as some 'dimwit' at C.S.A. (Canadian Standards Associated. ) has a slagged them for 'restricting airflow' and causing poor combustion.
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 thought these screens were off-the-shelf items at any RV dealer or even Walmart.

^^^^ Corporate policy is always a "non-answer" = Standard Operating Procedure.

Many car manufacturers don't recommend tire chains either.

Go figure.

A stupid question.
I don't have one, I never had a wasp or a bug either come in through there that couldn't come in through the door. So why would I need one ?

The purpose of the screens is to keep dirt daubers or yellow jackets or red wasps from building nests in your furnace or water heater exhaust and preventing them from working properly.
