Sometimes it's near impossible to keep birds/animals from messing up our RV's so that being said keep it waxed more than ever.

Thanks for the ideas. I like and will try the zip tie idea. Seems good to me because it's something you can put on and leave on.

Had the same problem years ago. What finally worked was tying a couple of plastic grocery bags to the top of the ladder while the rig was in storage. They flapped around in the slightest breeze and seemed to annoy the birds enough so they went elsewhere for their BM's.

We had terrible problem with birds this year on our boat.[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

After spending an entire day cleaning it, we went to the local hardware store and bought bird tape that the orchardists use and that did the trick. I'll use it on the MH if a problem develops, but so far the birds are staying away from it.[ATTACH]Click image for larger version

The tape is red on one side and silver on the other. It's very light and the slightest breeze flaps it around. I bought a 10' PVC pipe and strung a small diameter rope from the PVC to the front of the boat and tied each strip to the rope with fishing line. It looks like I'm in a parade but it works great.
