Go to a pool store and buy some inflatable pool toys that are the same size as your openings. Insert the toys and inflate them. Friction will hold them in place.

Crank up the heat maybe that will drive it out. Other thoughts are a small air horn - a couple of blasts from that will drive most anything out. Not to mention scare the crap out of it (which for some is entertaining ) which also might make it think twice.....

Do they make shock collars for cats?

I thought it would work better to put the grabby side out and just stick the cat to it.

If that don't work I've seen some use suction cups on the cat's paws and stick them to the inside of the windows!

Try cat repellent sprays. You may have to try a few to find one that works with your kitten, but if it works it is an easy fix that both of you can live with. Most the repellents are (generally) not offensive to humans.
We have the same problem with our cat. Fortunately she doesn't chew anything, just curious.
Good luck!

Try blowing air under the dash with a small fan our cat hates the fan and aluminum foil worth a try and it's not harmful. Lay foil on the floor they don't like the sound it makes when you shake a sheet of it or when they step on it.

For the gentleman that said take the cat out.. umm guess what.. This is our HOME!! We live in it full time we have no house so where would you suggest we put cat in freezing temps? For those that said crate.. you CAN'T crate cats they are not dogs and that is abuse to any animal as far as I am concerned.. For those that said netting or foam my cat CHEWS everything including plastic, foam, paper. I don't need more vet bills. For the person that complained of my NOT having a picture I am so glad you messaged on topic that really helped me. Thanks for all the suggestions and help. Cat has plenty of hiding places, we have no idea why she climbs inside of dash. What we do know is whomever made these kinds of motorhomes sure didn't use brains to put this one together.

We used a thing called a Scraminal. It gives out a loud screech designed to scare the cat away from wherever you don't want the cat . It will also alert you that the cat is where you don't want her.
We got it at a pet store .

We just had her spayed figuring that that was why she was trying to get out but now we are at a loss. We can not block it off permanently as there is too big a hole and also in case we need to access under the dash but meanwhile she is pulling out or chewing our wires which is dangerous. We love this kitten and would not get rid of her but solutions would be greatly appreciated.

If you would like to call me about how it worked I would be glad to talk to you about it.

Just a suggestion . . . before becoming offended or incensed about anything offered, you might want to realize what people know and do not know about you. Maybe I'm missing something here, but I went back and reviewed the whole thread and I see nothing UNTIL what you indicate in the quote above that you live full time in your motorhome.

So, at least as related to my previous post, I'm not suggesting you put the cat out in freezing temps. So . . . ummmm . . . maybe you've jumped to conclusions. Others who have responded, to which you've taken offense, will have to defend themselves.

I hope you get your problem solved. I have no further suggestions.
