Been trying to figure out a solution for a bugnet under the awning of my 21NE. Any suggestions? The bugs out here in northern Maine are insatiable

Thanks! And are the long, narrow Camco screens in your photo for the refrigerator vent?

For the water heater (I was doing an Atwood, but same thing would apply to the Suburban) I bought a small roll of #8 mesh (8 squares per inch) stainless steel mesh, commonly used by bee keepers.

I very carefully cut a piece to fit on the inside, as snug as possible, and attached it using .020" stainless aircraft safety wire.

Fridge vent screens are brand specific, if you have a Dometic, you have a Dometic vent and they are sized and shaped different than a Norcold. Dometic has a very rounded end to the vent slots while Norcold is very square with a slightly rounded corner. Most of the screens you buy come with only a few tiny wire ties. For better fit, I again used .020 safety wire, however, I also ordered small black Ty-wraps. Black is weather resistant and won't crack and break like white ones will.

Furnace screens can be found that fit on the inside of the "door" and merely slip into place, though I did wire mine in the corners.
