Chewed Turbo Hose (Little pissed off)

Was working on my webasto yesterday cutting some wires here and there and crimping. I left the cut stuff that dropped under the coach.
Went out today and noticed a bunch of what looked like my wire scrapes under coach.
After further investigation someone chewed up my brand new turbo hose and left me a present on top of my engine
New turbo


Chewed hose


The present

Holy that was a free buffet for them, and a souvernir for you . Last year our toad engine wires were chewed that disabled the power steering. They really like the taste of soy bean

Doesn't look like a pussum chewed the hose as they have sharp pointy teeth and the poop doesn't look like rat or rabbit

Sorry to see this happen... I feel for you!!!

It reminds me of coming in and finding my innocent teenager at the ripe age of 17, with a few of her friends, mixing fine scotch with Dr Pepper!!! This too, really p_ssed me off!!!

Hope you don't find that the nibbling went any further then what you've found...

Best,
Smitty

Stayed at advance rv in Houston for six months a year. They had , and still may have a raccoon problem. After several nights of droppings on rear engine I installed an electric fence around rig. Turned on system when we went to sleep and off first thing in morning. First couple of nights could hear raccoons scream when they touched line. After that they learned to stay away. Kind of a pain to install but if rig is in same location for extended periods of time this is cheaper than fixing chewed through lines. Good luck.

Enjoy the journey

These are becoming available on the black market... Download the APP 'Laser App's-R-Us'. Now, you may need to check your available CCC, before installing.

Maybe a woven steel sheath could go over your turbo line and protect it from future rodents? I'm not sure if heat from the sheath would harm the line, but it would suck to have it happen twice w/out some prevention.
