Thanks so much everyone. I think we've got the WH figured out. Now I've got a new question for you. Going to buy mud dobber screens and not sure what works on our unit. I measured the water heater vent at 6 3/4 x 8 3/4 and the furnace vent at 7 1/4 x 3 1/4. When I look on line the measurements aren't the same. Also, when I went to camping world they told me they didn't know what to use for my unit.

Check the manufacturer of the hot water heater and the furnace. You should be able to find screens that way. Good luck. Welcome to the XLR family and Happy Camping

I made my own with aluminum screen... Taped to the inside. Furnace screen a bit trickier; have to take it apart.

If you post a pic of your furnace vents, that would let everyone know what you have and be able to recommend the right screen(s). Some of the furnace vents are in a rectangular base, and some of them are two circular openings, so there are different types of screens.

X2...use alum screen with alum tape for all openings including ac vents on top of roof, not only does it work great and look good but a lot less expensive than aftermarket screens

Kind'a crude on the inside, but OK outside. I made screen covers for the fridge but would rather gave a good after market covers.

We're going to try making our own screens. Great idea. I'll let you know how it works.

The storage compartment does conflict with the bedroom slide. I'm still going to try installing something. I won't have this door open except for when I'm hooking up or un-hooking and the slide will be in. I'm thinking the T-style would be best since it will give me more space from the camper side.

I've looked everywhere for the sub woofer that is supposed to come standard on our unit and we do not have one. I've contacted the dealer again and Forest River. Can someone send me a pic so I can get an idea of its size. Thank you.
