While at Fort Hood Texas FamCamp the guy next door knocked on my door and announced that he saw a bird building a nest in my furnace exhaust! He helped me evict my unwelcome boarder. I am very thankful that I did not wake up or maybe not wake up to a coach filled with carbon monoxide. Have installed protective screens.

I installed protective screens right after another Alpine owner told me that he saw a bird stick its head out of the exhaust vent on a nice warm day.

Camping World sells a screen kit for the 2-hole furnace exhaust in their stores and on-line catalog.

I was told years ago about heater vent screens to avoid mud dauber wasps building a 'nest'.
So I have installed them in every RV I've had.

Wasps would be a REAL problem!

This probably boarders on the "A/R" but generator and diesel engine exhausts are also prime candidates for "invasion" during long period being parked or stored.....

I suppose it's possible, but have not heard of it. Doesn't mean it never happens though.

I would think the exhaust pressure from an engine would clean things out quite well.
