mesh size

does anyone know the correct size mesh size for screen to use on refrigerator/water heater vents. the regular steel window screen looks like it would clog to easily and the screens they make for rain gutters looks to large for small spiders.

I used regular aluminum house screening for our fridge vents. I take the covers off and hose them down to clean them. Never had a problem with them clogging up. Probably not the best.

They make screens to fit most of furnaces and water heaters. Here is a link to Camping World's offering, but I'm sure you can find them elsewhere on the web:

Search - furnace screen - Camping World

Plus, they are usually sold in any RV Parts place.

Spiders can fit easily through any screen and usually not a worry. Wasps, especially mud daubers, love the smell of propane. They like to fly through the open holes and build their nests in your furnace or water heater.

I have never seen a pre-made screen for refrigerators, but you may be able to fashion one from one of the other screens.

Use regular window screen here for fridge/water heater and furnace. Cut to size I need and hot glued it to the back.

I see that Camco offers a set of screens for rv refrigerators. You can Google it and find them on Amazon
