We recently bought a used travel trailer that had been sitting for a while (how long I'm not sure) and the underpart is covered with spider webs. I had my grandson power spray it about 1 1/2 weeks ago and it looks as bad as it did before. I also have to knock down webs whenever I enter the coach! Any suggestions to alleviate this problem??

Couple of cans of Raid spider spray. Spray everywhere underneath or don't bother.

followed by a weekend of closed windows and no persons.
throw in a few pounds of MOTH BALLS and cakes let it sit in the sun with the a/c off
that would include putting them in the lower basement areas and in the undercarriage coverings.
spiders are not going to leave fast and food is their priority
spray the webs real good...BIFEN poison from a farm center works very good as well

This is also spider web season! Just prior to writing this I did my DAILY chore of brooming away the spider webs from everything outside!

Get you some Demon WP
It can be used inside and out. You can find it at most feed stores or hardware stores. It will eliminate your spider problem.
