If there is a opening they WILL get in!
We have screened everything! Refer vents, furnace, HWH, propane vents, bumper endcaps (like Wiscampsin mentioned). Camco sells screens for all of these and can be inexpensively had on Amazon.com
I even went the extra mile and pulled our two A/C covers off the roof (yep, they have vents too!) and protected them from the inside with screendoor screen (Secured with aluminum tape).
*cough* until I went out to hook up after 3 weeks of inactivity this spring and found a (thankfully unoccupied) birds nest in the opening underneath our kingpin hitch!
Proof positive that if there is a opening, nook or cranny they WILL get in and nest!
(NB: I fashioned a piece of foam rubber and covered it in duct tape. It now plugs the opening underneath our hitch when not hooked to the truck - yep, even at the CG!
