Insects are some of the most clever infiltrators of private space in existence. Its perhaps worse in a RV than anywhere else. That’s why a RV bug screen mod may be just what the RV tech ordered. A contributor to the forest river forums named “Night Stone” just recently completed a RV mod to install RV bug screens in all the appropriate places. All of the RV bug screen installations shown below were done on a 2013 Salem Cruise-Lite 181BHXL. They are shown off one by one below.
The units below are all manufactured by Camco, which is one of the largest, if not the largest manufacturers of aftermarket RV accessories and parts in the world. They make several sizes of many different types of RV bug screen mesh. These vents are recommended by many RV enthusiasts as they are designed to fend off wasps, mud dauber nests, birds and rodents that can wreak havoc on the different systems in your RV. Feel free to look-over the full catalog of RV bug screen mesh. Most of the Camco RV bug screens come with all the accessories to install them.
Be sure to look your RV over closely and to determine which model vent is used on your rig so you can get the appropriate vent cover.
