We have a Airstream TT with full belly pan and I have been over every inch underneath and can find NO holes period. No hatch, doors, cords, nothing is open that I can find. How do these pesky critters get in and how to prevent them from doing so?
TIA
John

A few years back, my wife and I observed, through our dining window, a field mouse entering and exiting a neighbors TT several times. Its entry point was via the power cable, going inside through the small cable opening on the small door where the cable is stored. I immediately did a fix on ours by wrapping a plastic shopping bag tightly around the cable and to wedge it in the hole. Of course this plastic bag has to be removed when the cable comes in but either way, it is only a 10 second chore.
Could this possibly be your problem?

Thanks for the reply. The cord is enclosed inside a steel compartment but I will double check the entry point from there to inside. The cord is not extended during storage but who knows. Pesky darn critters.

Mice can fit throught very small holes. Could they be getting in via one of the storage doors? How about the fridge grill on the side of the trailer? The water heater or furnace grills? Could they be climbing the side and coming in the fridge vent? Just look for their droppings for ideas.

I've covered most of our external grills and openings with a small weave hardware cloth. No problems with them since I did this.

Good Luck!
