Bug Screens

Wondering if anyone has ever been able to actually install the screens they sell to cover vents? I'm not talking about the roof vents...the small screens they sell to keeps wasps, etc. out. That tool is ridiculous to maneuver...am I alone in this? 😁😉

Yes I have installed several in my rigs. On one I broke the tool. Took a piece of solid copper wire and fished it through the grill of the furnace. then pushed it through the screen and twisted it to keep the screen in place. Worked great, looked bad, but no bugs made it into the furnace!

I have successfully installed the refer screen . The furnace screen is impossible to install with their silly tool so I made a couple of aluminum brackets that hold it on.

Thanks, I saw someone else did that and tried, but was unsuccessful. I eventually got all the screens on...just wish they were all as easy as the ones for the fridge vents! Those springs and that tool were giving me nosebleeds! Lol

Anyone bought the screens for a Solera? I don't know which vents have available screens and where you can buy them.

Appreciate any help I can Get.

Thanks,

Pete
