Furnace Vent/Exhaust Cover

When winterizing the TT, does anyone cover the furnace vent/exhaust ports? I would imagine critters cold get in there and nest. If you do cover the ports what do you use to seal it up?
Thanks

A lot of people put the screens over the furnace vents. The good thing about them, is you can leave them on all the time.

Place a Camco mud dauber screen over the furnace ports (amazon $9.79) and you will not have to worry. there is no real need to seal up the furnace.

Don't forget those big vents on the Refrigerator ...

When we dis-assembled the previous TC, we found literally thousands of ladybugs, Japanese beetles, box elder bugs etc. who had unsuccessfully tried to Winter in there over the years.

A post in another section of the forum here, shows the Camco screens we installed:

The mud dauber vent cover is a good choice. I have never used anything to cover them up, and have never had any problems. It will depend on where you live more than anything.

In Idaho it is very common for wasps to make nests in the furnace, water heater, fridge and hood vents.
