If you don't like the pesticide kind of wasp spray, WD-40 will kill them just as fast.

listen to the ole biscuit. If they are inside the camper, they should (i said should) not be building outside in the condenser unit. Might be interesting to find the avenue of how they are getting in the camper.

Set out one of those sugar-water traps. Won't take long to lure them in.

I had a wasp nest in the eve of the house, all I could see was a small hole. I set up a shop vac with a long hose. As the wasps exited the hole, they would get sucked into the shop vac. As the ones in the field returned to the nest and went to enter the hole, they wold get sucked into the shop vac. After a couple days, there's no one left bringing food the the ones in the nest and they die off. If you don't have clear access to spray the actual nest, this is the way to get rid of them. ( if you just seal up the hole, they just chew a new opening and it might be through the sheetrock in the living room).

Had a nest of yellow jackets in the siding once. Hosed the entrance hole down with Raid, and they found their way into the basement. Hundreds of them...

Put Pine Sol in a garden sprayer ( I mix it 50-50 with water but you can go full strength). Learned this from a roofer. It works great plus you do not have to get close.

get the rv very cold, wasps hate the cold. they will move on. but going to co$t you.
never kill them off inside any wall. as it rots, and attracts roaches, thus more rot.
i like the vacuum deal.

Whatever you do, do NOT try spraying them with Off or any other insect repellent. Yes, voice of painful childhood experience.
