We had a bunch of red squirrels gnawing wires under the hood of the camp truck when we worked in SD. Law enforcement ranger that parked his truck at the CG told me so shoot them with a pellet rifle if I had one. Figure that!
I had gray squirrels gnaw the radiator hose off a tractor I had at the shed here in N Georgia. I hope the little vermin got a nice drink.

Parked the TT under a tree for a couple of months only to come back and find all the wiring underneath chewed to pieces. Cost a fortune to fix that but that wasn't the worse. The things proceeded to chew up all the wiring in the car engine area - caught one when I started to get into the car so I know it was squirrels. Done overnight to the tune of $1800 to repair. It is a hazard of living in the countryside I guess. But, I have taken care of the problem - pellet gun took out several, barn cats and outside dogs took care of the rest. No more squirrel problems. If one comes around it quickly leaves.

I had squirrels Chew the wirring and high pressure fuel lines on top of my MH fuel tank. When I started it the fuel sprayed all over the under side of the chassis. It could have burned the MH and every one around me to the ground.
