No snakes allowed. Burn it........My wife would never set foot in our MH again if I found a snake skin inside. On the positive side, the snake will have to eat sometime and will leave the same way he came in when he gets hungry again. You could also take a trip to a cold place and freeze the bugger out....

Found this post: RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Class A Motorhomes: Snakes in RV
Checked my AC inlet and sure enough, no screen. That's my next project.

That shed skin could have been there from years ago. Also snakes have to have food to survive which are mice, etc. Mice do damage, snakes don't and they eat mice

That snake was probably long gone before you even sat down to start this thread.

However, being married to a gal who is deathly afraid of snakes, I an certainly understand your dilemma.

After you find it, an i do stress after, they sell snake away products = moth balls, put some around rv snakes will not go past it, but if one is inside that 'circle" they will not leave,
ps. im with ya on that as my dw heard of it, the rv would be up for sale before i got back to house (she'd already have it on market with 4sale sign).

Put a mouse in the rig and lock the door. Check on it every few days. If it's still there the snake is gone. If not, hire a moongoose.

I would have more damage to repair from the "judge" than it is worth.

Sorry MH has to go. I hate snakes and if it were still in there and I were driving when it came out I would leave the wife in the MH going down the road. That's only because I know I could beat hear out of there.
