I fabricated a stainless steel mesh screen to keep wasps and birds out of the propane storage area. The Lance camper I have has a large opening under the propane tanks. It’s large enough for birds to build a nest, so I wanted to keep the birds and even wasps out.

Propane Bug Protection

I bought some stainless steel perforated metal to provide good ventilation while keeping the birds and bugs out. It has worked out great!

It took me 2-hours to complete this modification and cost me $25.  In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
