Not really a CC issue, I have a Country Coach 2007 Allure 470 Coach, 42ft Siskiyou Summit, quad slide that I park out side on a Pad(50 amp) over the winter. Llast winter experienced rodents chewing on all the chassis lines (Elec, Air, Hyd, etc).

The bite marks indicate some mice and something bigger than mice. First time for this and I have no evidence of rodents inside the coach. The cracked acorns kind of give the culprit away

Has anyone had this before and if so what is the cure?

Yes this can be a real expensive problem. Some people use dryer sheets or cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil and spread around the inside of the coach and in the bays. Others use electronic devices to control pests. I personally use the dryer sheets when the coach goes into storage for the winter.

Sounds like tree rats ( squirrel ) I have used Hot sauce, keep a eye on your wiring, its made with soybeans and they love it. Good luck, it can be a big problem.
