Black flies entering trailer

I have a Rockwood 2012 8280WS. I had it parked at the farm for a month and would have 50-100 flies infiltrate the interior in a day. I think they were in the ceiling as I would find them in the lite fixtures, speakers, drawers and cupboards. I plugged propane vents, roof vent. Didn't matter if the slides were open or closed. Anyone else having this problem and any suggestions?

Stop parking it at the farm!

Check the roof for cracks.

I would try one of these.

Are they full sized or are they smaller than the normal house fly? If smaller, they are probably drain flys that breed in your P traps. See Amico JQX-12F 2Z DC 12V 30A DPDT General Purpose Power Relay 8 Pin : : Automotive

No they are the larger black flies. They must be in the ceiling as they get in the lights and even the speakers. They pop out where there is a hole for wiring and I suspect the air conditioning vents. I had no problems with mosquitos getting in.
