The Spring Fling was great! Wonderful people, perfect weather, and lots of doggies for my Zoe to meet. Thanks so much Gerry for all the work you do to organize this event. It's really nice to have a rally up here in N.E. so we can see other fiberglass trailers and trade tips and tricks. I won window awnings for my Casita! Thank you so much for that!. They're beautiful. Now I just have to install them.

Nothing but great feedback from all you Spring Flingers and already thinking on 2022.
Some of you missed this year but we'll be seeing you next year.
Let's hope we can get back to the standard Pot-Luck dinner as I think some of the people didn't attend the dinner due to the food selection.
At least with Pot-Luck you can cook what you know you will eat.
Glad you all had a great time.
Gerry

It was nice to see you at the Rally Linda, wish things were more normal and we all could have had supper and the shine and show but all in all it was a good time.

Got it!

Well, got "her". See post #73 in this thread for background.
The Casita is parked in the driveway between trips. The lawn tractor was parked next to it while I remedied a breakdown. This morning I smelled the distinct odor of rodent as I worked on the tractor. There was no odor when I worked on it yesterday afternoon. That's not a surprise as we have many critters around. After about 1/2 hour it dawned on me that the smell might be from the Casita less than 3 feet away.
In the same under seat storage in which I found the beginnings of that food cache or nest was the mouse in the jaws of death I had left set.
Now, I'm hoping it's the same critter both times, but recognize that the trace odor from weeks ago, weak enough that I couldn't detect, might well have enticed a more attuned member of that same species in. So I'm leaving the traps re-baited and at the ready.

hey Bonnie, hears hoping that you got the invader but maybe finding how they got in there, in the first place may be a good idea.
they make that "Great Stuff" that is rodent proof now and a mouse can fit through a hole about as big as your finger so get all little spots and fill them.
I found this job is easiest by crawling under the camper and looking up to see any holes around pipes.

two users, one shared account

I (Jon MB ) am quite confident that the entry point had been the electric cable outlet cover. The clearance between the 30 amp shore power cable and the pivoting 'dog door' within the larger cord access cover has, again, been closed off with painter's tape while the camper is plugged while parked at home. This had not been re-sealed between our last return until the demise of the intruder.

I see you have a Casita, do you have the rubber seal that goes on the power cord to seal it to the hatch door. I've heard these may not fit the newer Casitas, but does fit our '96. You could make one from a piece of rubber. AP Products 008-644 Bugshield Hatch Door Seal. I think this hatch door is what you are referring to ??

Bug & Critter Guard for Electric Hatch Door

Last year when I was departing a campground and getting ready to stow my electric cord, a mud dauber flew out of the compartment when I opened the door.

After I returned home, investigating for a solution to "close the gap" around the cord, I found the "Shore Power Bug Guard" on Little House Customs which appears to be the same item as the AP Products 008-644 Bugshield Hatch Door Seal.

Noting the caution on Little House Customs that the bug guard only fits cord openings that are 1ľ" in width and that it doesn't fit cord openings that are 1Ĺ", I had to look for something else for my 2007 Casita Spirit Deluxe. Coming up short, I had to make my own.

After pivoting the hatch door shield up/away, I slip the my home made guard into place on the hatch door, position the cord in the opening and close the hatch door.
