We use a Black & Decker Ultrasonic Pest Repeller and have had no problem. We live in the country with lots of squirrels.

The new soy based car wiring insulation is very tasty to critters. Becoming a real problem.

Didn't know that. Good to know.

Maybe keeping a bucket full of nuts will keep them from eating the cables. What a nightmare it would be to go out and find that your cables are all chewed up. We have tons of squirrels, but the coach sits on a pad on the side of the house and haven't had a problem as of yet. I always setup mouse traps in the winter but haven't caught one yet. We have lots trees and they are probably happy with that.

Thanks for all the replies. I am trying a multi level approach and see what happens. I do try and shoot them (I live in the county and have had limited success). I am doing the following:

1. A product called Repel All (at Tractor Supply) - the Amazon reviews are 24 five stars and 24 one stars!! So, thought I would give it a try around the RV and vehicles.
2. The "Fresh Cab" (also at Tractor Supply) - it has mostly good reviews. I put a couple of pouches under the hood in all vehicles.

Time will tell. I have had $1,000 damage to one vehicle a few years ago and $3000 to an F-250 recently. $100 deductible on my insurance or it would have been as cheap to build a garage I suppose!

After letting the coach sit for several months, I had ground squirrels in the ceiling insulation. Tried leaving the radio on very loud for 24 hours because the speakers are in the ceiling. I guess they like country music because they were still there. I then borrowed a coyote call device from a friend who hunts them. Turning it on definately made them nervous, heard scampering up there. After a day I think they are gone. But, I still can't find their access.

Our membership campground we go to has the same issues. A few of my friends had damage on their RV's and toad. We have been trying everything but it's a battle for sure. If your going to be parked awhile like in storage my idea would be to buy some habanero hot sauce , thin it down , strain it and use a garden type sprayer and spray everything underneath etc. I haven't tried this but it was a brainstorm. It would hurt or damage anything and fade away or wash off driving in the rain. Until then I use poison pellets made for varmints and sprinkle them around under the RV, I count how many I put down in each group so I can tell if they are eating it or not.

That also works on fences to keep horses from eating the fence, just mix some habenero sauce in the paint
