I did not get my new cruiser 5th wheeler yet but there is something I have been wondering about. My unit will be left on a seasonal site for most of the camping season (we will only do a few short trips) when I connect the water line through the underbelly after removing the cap, what will keep critters from entering the storage compartment ?

You will have to figure out something to close the hole, or they will be in your rig for sure.
This is what I did.

Our unit is also parked at a seasonal site at the golf course. We went to the hardware store and picked up a couple of devices that pluf into the 110v outlet emmiting a sound only vermin can hear and have never had a problem. I have seen squirrels come toward the unit and about 10 feet away they will stop and turn and run away.

As I said on the other thread on this subject on the mods section by Old Farmer. I plan on taking out a wall in the basement and see if I can run the city water and black water flush through the outside wall of the 5er. Also the coax for the cable television. I just need for the weather to cooperate with me, too cold and too rainy

Pack steel wool around your hose. Critters can't chew thru. I also use the plugins as a back up.
