Well I never even thought to look for these.....................I taped up the furnace vents, WH vents and fridge vents when I winterized to keep the damned stinkbugs out. These sites cost me money again! But the stinkbugs are a pain in the *****.

We've had them on all of our trailers for years. They stayed on with no problems going down the road.

I would never be without them and never had a problem towing with them. My popup one year a mouse found the heater vents and thought it would be a good place to store corn from the corn field and that summer on a cool night we had roasted corn in my heater.

Works great and cheap. ACE gave me the screen for free
I was going to do this but was concerned about blocking exhaust flow and burning the material up. So these are not issues with using screen? I think it's a great idea. I hate those screens but I hate critters in my appliances more.

[QUOTE=hbidlack;1146735]We just picked up our new Coachmen Clipper 17fq, and are getting it ready. One of the suggestions we followed was to buy the small circular screen covers for the furnace vents, to keep critters out. They connect by small springs that hook onto the vent with an included tool.
My question -- do I leave the screens on all the time, even when towing? Or do I only put them on when we get to the camp area, and take them off before we travel back home?



Once you put them on with that included tool, you won't be too anxious to do the job again any too soon and will be glad you can leave them on. Spoken by a senior citizen with bifocals.

I tossed the tool that came with them and used Hemostats instead. Made it a little easier.. Also wire ties work well on the places you can remove and heat is not an issue.
