Bug/rodent/water block for Valterra Electric Cord Doors

I generally do not endorse products but rather than reconfiguring the electrical cord door on my Parkliner, as others have done, I found this in a trailer magazine.

Climate Bug Shield - No More Bugs In Your Camper! - Home

It was simple to install and should keep critters out of the camper and is easy to remove while on the road.

I also have a cable for the tv connection behind this door and I do not think both wires can fit through the hole so I'll add a cable tv connection to the side of the camper.

Sorry I could not figure out how to post a picture... mine is only a low quality cell phone one anyway.

We tried to make reservations in Myrtle Beach in October at Ocean Lakes but they were nearly full! I did not have the exact dates locked down for us but tried a number of combinations with limited success. Have any of you found this time of year to be super busy? There must be lots of people with time to camp.

Happy Camping

Lee and Katie

That is an awesome little "must have" accessory to keep vermin out of the trailer! Tired of the duct tape.
And cheap too!

I just stuff a couple of Walmart plastic bags around the cord. Probably less expensive and I'm recycling!

If you have the square door for the electric cord and want to support a small business owner who supports all molded towables, Larry Gamble has the same thing for the same price. You'll find it about 1/3 down this page: Little House Customs

I made one with a small hole for when I plug in at home. I leave the plug and extension cord outlet inside the trailer with only the orange extension cord coming out.

It appears that there is a gap below my bug deterent however there is not as it sits on the frame of the door.

I made another with a biggrer hole for the large 30amp cord when connected at campgrounds.

We use some soft rope caulk. Can use the same piece a few times until it gets dirty. Seals the hole completely.
