Crop circles?

Good day!

My wife and I are just starting to explore our 'new to us' 1972 Trillium 1300. I couldn't help but notice a circular pattern, off center around the ceiling vent. It came to me - that pull chain, spinning around like a stripper's tassles, as the wee fiberglass egg bounces down the road - slowly etching that circle into the ceiling over the past 48 years...

The question is: How do you know about a strippers tassles?

First thing I do on any trailer I buy is install a max or Fantastic fan. You won’t have to worry about that chain again

Try a magnet.
Same thing was happening with the pin on a chain that is used to secure the Scamp door lock from the inside. A strong magnet allows me to immobilize the pin. Maybe some day I manage to clean the "crop circle" on the rat fur. At least it is not getting worse.

Do they come in flavors? Asking for a friend.

Ever see them twirled and treated with a little Ronson lighter fluid and blazing away? The fire doesn’t last long on the chain though.
I was proud of that mustache and didn’t want it singed, it was scary for a young lad.
