New to forum but not rvs

My wife and I have had some type of recreational equipment since 1973--bumper pull trailers, tents, and pop-up trailers. October of 2011 we purchased a Monaco Monarch 33' motor home. Tweaking it has been quite a chore but hopefully we finally have the kinks worked out. Now we've discovered that either squirrels or rats have chewed the insulation under the motor cover that's between the driver's and passenger's seats. Suggestions on how to prevent that?

As long as I had outside cat's squirrels never bothered vehicles,cats got old and died and now I have to leave my hoods up.Squirrels have made nest in engine compartment and they eat any wires they can find.We do have a stray cat been around lately so I'm feeding him hopeing that he will come by more often.

My wife has had we should get a cat since our other one passed away several months ago. I wasn't aware that cats would help with the squirrels. I bought some animal repellent granules, put it in my wife's knee-high hose, and placed 3 of them in strategic places hoping that will help.
