Mosquito problem

Have a A122S 2016. Went to the Everglades in Jan and the mosquitoes came in on both front side panels where the seal stopped at the hold down levels above the door and above window at stove. Any help to fix.

I use pipe insulation foam between side panels and roof from inside after camper is opened up. I also cut a piece of foam to fit at the peaks which is the most vulnerable area in my camper. I also sometimes use a truck bed cargo bar inside to snug side panels to roof edges to make sure factory weatherstripping seals as it is supposed to. The cargo bar also doubles as a place to hang things.

Is the pipe foam the K-flex and what size are you using? thanks

I don't know if it is K-flex or not but it is black foam insulation for one inch pipe. It has a slit along entire length that slips over pipe. I purchased it at home depot for around $1.50 for 6ft. length. The outer diameter is about 2 inches and fits snuggly between top of side wall and roof panels and also at top where roof panels come together. Hope this helps!

Swimming pool noodles will work well also depending on diameter.
