SLX Baja Edition underbelly issues
We have the 145RB SLX Baja edition which has the additional corrugated heavy black plastic underbelly cover held in place with self-tap screws into the frame rails done without any attempt to prevent the entry of rodents . The regular SLX models use a single-ply plastic or heavy paper type underbelly cover which covers the insulation on the underside of the unit. So... in effect the SLX Baja editions have for all purposes two underside covers. The air space or cavity between the two layers is the depth or thickness of the entire frame rails. This space provides a perfect hide-a-way or apartment for rodents of all types. The rodents enter from any of dozens of opening or cavities between the frame and the heavy plastic corrugated cover and then they crawl into the holes sliced into the regular SLX insulation cover made for the installation and/or entry of piping or electric lines. I've removed rodent nests from the interior wiring and plumbing cabinet ( location of on board water tank and 12 volt system), after the rodents have accessed the interior. I've removed additional nests from between the black and gray holding tanks covered by the corrugated plastic. I am considering removing the entire corrugated cover so I can access all the cut out openings and poke-throughs left by the installers. Other owner experiences w/ SLX underbelly, and suggestions, or opinions are appreciated.
