I did it myself, if you have the spray gun and compressor it goes on easy! I coated everything except engine, muffler and brakes, I did cover everything else I could see including under slides which exposed tracks. I did wheel wells plumbing , electrical, wiring, jacks, axles you name it. Smells good and if you get it on body wipes off clean. I used a gallon and a half first time and a half that second time.

I most liked over killed but I've had ants and mice before and damn if ill let them in again! Lol

The access points are more than most think.
1. tongue jack for TTs and front jacks for 5vers
2. tires - 2 to 6
3. power cord
4. water hose
5. sewer hose - not just outside, bugs can and do come inside the hose.
6. cable tv wire
7. stabilizer jacks
8. anything leaned against trailer
9. falling from trees above - bet you haven't thought of that one. See it a lot here in Florida.

I carry ant poison and bait and set it out at first sight of any around my campsite. One of the campgrounds I frequent has an abundance of ants and I go prepared, to prevent taking any home. Has helped some...

Update

The supposed baby scorpion mentioned in my last post turned out to be a rather large brown spider. From what I can tell, it was not a Brown Recluse. Picture attached. About the size of a quarter.

I have been searching the last 3 nights with my newly-acquired from Amazon 51 LED blacklight flashlight. Came across a black cat outside, which did not glow at all in the dark. Probably freaked it out...or trashed it's eyeballs. No scorpions found yet. Maybe the temps need to be higher than 50ish.

Thanks Enokie.

Reading the threads I was trying to think back about the product highly recommended for critters/bugs and safe around pets and humans
Then I see Enokie who posted about KONK previously on one of my threads posted so you saved the day.

I did reading about this product after you mentioned it some time ago and find it highly recommended. I have not been able to find it yet in our local hardware stores so if any one knows a chain store that carries it let me know.

I have used granular moth balls sprinkled around perimeter of my RV that usually keeps ground critters away. The only other pests can be the ones with wings that try and find other ways to seek residence in or rig. Thus I need to find that KONK.
