Thanks for the idea! In my 5er there is shelf space above the overhead cabinets. Been trying to think of something I could put up there that wouldn't fall and break when traveling, Hats just might be a winner!

Will work for me. Space is about 5 feet long, a foot deep and 6 inches high. It has decorative spindles in front about 3 inches high. Almost anything you might put up there would slide around, fall out and break. Area might hold a dozen hats. Can't break and probably wouldn't fall off. Shouldn't take more than a year to fill it up if I buy one from each place I go.

The screen was just a standard screen that looked like one from a window. The screen was clean and the WH was also clean and blown out with air hose. The Atwood WH is different when comparing to a furnace or frig. They are just venting but the water heater is depending on the air to create a flow of air to manage the flame. I still check the WH each time before I turn it on for any obstructions. I have witnessed a diesel pickup overheat with a bug screen attached. A screen will restrict more air flow than you would think. The Atwood WH has many expensive parts around the flame tube and it really needs to be watched carefully. Mine works great but I would not have a screen on it.

Could do the hw the same way just to be safe I think metal screening is just a little bit smaller.

Jim
Thats a lot of work to not buy a Camco fridge screen from Walmart on line for 10 or so dollars.

same with the water heater and the furnace.

i think less than 35 total $

custom fit with reinforced edges. i installed ours in less that 5 minutes and added a few extra tie wraps for extra.

no silicone to peel off my jeans DW just bought for me,
no taping
no drilling

clean install and best of all they shipped right to the door. - for free.

more time for me to enjoy camping

While camping with our old RV I watched a wasp fly into the furnace vent and sure enough a paper nest was under construction. Got rid of them and not another problem.
When we bought the new camper I installed the furnace screens. I started the install while I had the furnace running - I hadn't realized exactly how much heat comes out that port and shut it down pronto.

no doubt...

but for me to drive my truck to HD (20 minutes each way) and spend 20 minutes in the store locating the screening, buying wire cutters, silicone and a caulking gun, then drive home would cost me more in aggrivation and gas than having the product delivered to my door for a perfect fit the first time.

not to mention the 13% sales tax on top of the items purchased... and HD may not have the proper wire gauge or mesh style in stock so it could mean more store hunting for it increasing the costs.

Looked for a Dewalt buffer last week... "We carry Dewalt tools but not that one"

At 40$ an hour (my paid wage) for my time to hunt for things it was a cost effective way to get fast and correct results.

main thing is there are several methods to arrive at the same or similar end state.

for me Camco screens were the correct decision, while for others it may be buying and cutting screens and dosing them with silicone until the tube is dry.
both ways work and look grate

I had to put them on the fridge vent, had a football sized hornet growing in there in 1 week! I cover all the vents over the winter....on the inside.
