Where are we advised to put these flea collars exactly? Just in the compartment?

Flea collars go in the bottom access to the refer and across the bottom of the water heater.

The screens are on place only when parked at home.

The flea collars sound like a good idea, too.

Been there, they wont get into the coach but your furnace wont sense the correct air flow and wont light. Spent a freezing weekend in Michigan's upper peninsula with this issue. Had to pull the furnace and disassemble as far as possible and use a coat hanger to tear the nest out and vacume/blow the particles out. I use screens now, cheap, easy prevention.

Once you get rid of the existing problem, this is how to prevent it in the future.

Only if you can see them. Often times the problem isn’t apparent until the furnace doesn’t light. As stated above, complete teardown is required.
