1995 Holiday Rambler Imperial exterior vent identification

Hey all. New to the forum and just have a quick question for anyone out there that may be able to answer it. On the rear passenger side of our RV (photo attached) there is a square vent cover and we are trying to figure out what that vent is for. Got a wasp nest in there and dont know what the next step is to get rid of them and dont want to spray insecticide into something that might be negatively affected by the spray!

Let us know!

I believe that is the inlet for your engine air filter. That's what it is on mine.

Thanks for that, Vera and Ken, that is what we thought at first as well, but it looks like we have a FARR filter canister that sits inside the lower passenger side radiator compartment and we cant find any ducting that would bring the air from that vent to the filter.

Aside from that we are not too sure how to get the wasps nest out of the vent without losing any of the paper particles or insects into the air filter if that is the air filter intake! There arent any fasteners on the vent cover itself that can be removed to get the cover off and get the nests out.

We definitely need more experienced RV'ers than us on this one because we are sure that this isn't the first time wasps have built their nests in someones RV vent!

My air filter is held on with 2 large metal strap clamps. Remove your Farr filter. You can then pressure wash or use air pressure to blow the wasps nest out. Let it dry and then replace your air filter.

Ours is held in place by the same straps. Thank you for the advice. We've got a few days cold snap where we are so the insects themselves are disappearing and it'll just be the nest to contend with. Well do just that over the few days after the snap lifts and before the winter hits. Thank you again for all the help!

Don't go crazy kill them use whatever to fish it out maybe a suitable brush that can be bought in every shape and size ,then dampen it followed by shop vac. Let the filter do it's job , there's much worse abrasive material blowing down the road than a paper nest.
