Covered AC, refrigerator & water heater for less than $10.00. Took the screen off the old trailer for the furnace.

I just finished putting screens on the refrigerator outside panel. They just mount in all three slots and ty-wrap in. I think camco has them.

I just bought the screens for the furnace. Am thinking of making my own for the fridge and water heater for the inside of the panels. These ones are so expensive for some reason.

Now I am wondering about not only the A/C unit but what about the fridge vent on the roof? Anyone have trouble with the fridge roof one? Nobody seems to make one for that. Or perhaps there is already one on it??

We get nasty wasps around here that build paper nests under things. Like the big one in a roof vent on our house when I was building it. I was 20' up on scaffolding and I decided to poke it off with a long stick. Really bad idea...... I hate wasps.

Manufacturers recommend against doing this. They restrict the airflow too much. In fact, it says this in your owners manual for your appliances.

Have been putting screenwire on AC,refrig & waterheaters since 1976 on 9 different trailers/5vers and have never had any problems with the performance of any of the units. I cover the area between the compressor and the evaporator on the ac under the cover and it works just fine. I do not cover the intake vent slots in the covers or the outside of the evaporator coils. I just forgot to do it on the 08 Flagstaff 831RLSS and ended up with a major vibration due to mud dobbers building a big nest on one of the blades of the fan. About an hrs job in the hot sun removing the blade and cleaning it. Won't happen again.
