Trailer: 19 ft Scamp 5th wheeel
Posts: 1
I just bought a 1989 19' Scamp 5th wheeel and set it on 132 beautiful acres south of here. Unfortunately, a swarm of wasps has likes the Scamp more than I do. There are all over the thing and have invaded the interior. It has an air condition on the roof. It seems like the intake portions of that would be screened. Where could they be getting through?

There could be a spot on the air conditioner where they are getting in, maybe a bent fin on the condencer coils but I would look around the the water& electrical openings and around the door real close.

Wasps can get through holes about 3/8 of an inch (about the size of a pencil).

Try watching the trailer on a warm day and see where they make their entrance and seal it.

Make sure you have screens on your furnace inlet/outlet. They are available at most RV supply stores.

This is a good idea. I have a screen that covers both inlet and outlet. However, nobody or anything should be able to get inside the trailer via this route.

I think they're coming in from Beehind....

Actually these eggs kinda look live a beehive, hmmm.
I'd agree with the fellas above, and Gerry's idea of watching it for a bit will probably tell you.

Bees will use an opening smaller than you think possible, look underneath... around the freshwater and hotwater drains for instance.
