plastic like sawdust '02 Itasca

We have had our 2002 Itasca motorhome for about four years. In the last two years I have found a plastic like sawdust on top of the fresh water tank. I have searched everywhere for the source but can't find it. Just recently I also found this in the medicine cabinet and appears to be coming from the hole where the wires come out of the ceiling. Just wondering if anyone else has seen a problem like this, thanks Bob

The builder never vacuumed the cuttings from drilling holes, look under your draw spaces on floor in a cabinet or under shower if you have a vent near floor may find same thing.
Mfg just cutting costs.

I had sawdust, aluminum pieces and misc. other junk, appear after every trip in my last 5er; that I bought new. Always thought that the appearance would slow , but somehow it didn't. Current MH, 10 years old when purchased, still has stuff show up every year. Dropped the roof vent trim, and found 1/4" of stuff built up there. Can't wait to see what comes out of the furnace ducts this year.

I had a similar plastic sawdust clogging one of my air conditioners. It was from ants that were eating the styrofoam insulation to make pathways in it. This plastic sawdust was also under refrigerator and behind refrigerator. Cleaned up the residue and got rid of ants. No more plastic sawdust. Hope this helps.

This is a common problem cause by an infestation of the dreaded platices termitics.

I hear they love plumbing lines and holding tanks. They have four teeth are almost invisible unless you have had at least 2 cocktails.

While running a coax cable for the new bedroom TV I removed some of the drawers from the dresser and found a rather large push up bra and two ladies strap tee shirts. That was fun explaining to DW.

No we did not buy the MH new
