Refrigerator vent and bugs / Mud daubers

We have Mud Daubers where we live and keep our trailer. I have already put the screen protector on the heater outlet and installed screen on the vent pipes for the 2 water tanks. Looking around at other areas I see what looks like a very inviting spot for Daubers and any other bugs to come in where the lower refrigerator vent is. I notice on this thread what looks like screen on this vent panel. Was this custom or installed factory? Anybody else done this? Are there kits available, or just roll your own?

Also looking at the vent area for water heater. It looks somewhat more protected but still might do something there. Anyone?

Thanks

There are kits available. I think camco makes them. We have them on Fridge, water heater and furnace. Held on with springs. Work great.

All the insect screen protection items you're looking for are available at Camping World. Make sure you know what brand of heater, furnace, fridge you have when shopping.

- screen - Camping World

Ha, I should have figured Campers World would have it. Thanks all. I'm stopping by Campers World tomorrow. If not in stock I'll hit the internets.

For the refrigerator and the water heater I just took alum screen wire and alum taped it on the inside of the covers. It's still holding tight after 18 months.

For the frig vents we took plastic canvas and cut it out and tied it to the vent with fishing line. $3 at walmart. Of course you could not do this for your furnace or water heater.
