Insect screens

Can someone please tell me where to find insect screens for a 2017 Oliver?  I have searched the internet and do not come up with the correct sizes.  

Thanks so much.

Nan -

I assume that you are asking about the frames for the screening? 

Have you contacted Oliver Service in this regard?

I got screens for the furnace (two little round screens) and the hot water tank (big square screen) on Amazon.  I haven’t done anything to the fridge openings. I had a mud dauber nest in the air conditioner last year, when I found it there were no insects but was a bit of a pain to clean out.

Bill, I am talking about the insect screens for the vents for the water heater, refrigerator and the battery box.

 

Nan,

Oliver Service sells those screens. I saw a recently purchased Ollie and service installed the screens for the new owner.

Maybe give them a call.

Nan, when you install your screens, put a small tarp on the ground in case one of the little spring hooks flies off the little tool. It makes finding the hooks much easier. (Ask me how I know...😂😂😂)

Absolutely!

In addition:

Add either an additional spring or secure the screen with a stainless steel wire .  Both of these can be tedious to do but the springs supplied with the screen normally rust and break after three to five years of use.  (Ask me how I know...🙄

And, keep some spare hooks. Amazon sells a little kit with the attachment tool and a few hooks. Etrailer sells a pack of 8 hooks.  Camco sent me a half dozen spares for free about ten years ago, when one of my springs rusted, but camco was bought out last year, so that exceptional customer service has probably changed.

Our original camco screens are still bright and shiny after 14 seasons. (Except the one we drove over. That one required replacement. 😂)

Not that I didn't believe Seadawg - but - I have never seen the "spring hooks" sold separately.  So, HERE they are on Amazon.  Yeah!😇

I install one of the round screens on my furnace vent. I tried to install the hooks with no sucess and final gave up since the screen fits tightly by itself without the hooks.

The only trouble I forsee is having to remove the screen if I ever need to get into the area for maintenance.

Any ideas on how to remove the screen without damaging it our the flange it fits on?

Never tried. It's there to stay.

Items that I ordered came today..out of all of them, only the round one (for the heater exhaust) and the rectangular one (for the HW heater exhaust) fit...so that still leaves the refrigerator vents uncovered.  Before the ceramic coating I could just tape window screens on these vents, but now the tape will not stick at all.  So, that leaves me with a couple of spare parts to add to my collection.

Did you order from Amazon? Can't you return the ones that don't fit?

As an aside, window screening is often too small for fridge vents.  Id look for somewhat larger mesh.
