Sealing up holes in 2016 29.5 BHDS
So we took delivery of our 2016 Eagle HT 29.5 BHDS a few weeks ago and this past weekend, I had to really close it up. So before removing the battery, I opened the slides and all storage compartments and started to look for openings where critters could get in. This is what I found.
1. Driver side near wheels, electric brake wires coming out of a large opening, which made no sense to me why it was open so much, so I used some Gorilla Tape, closed it up, but left a small opening to get some spray foam in there. I filled it up until it was coming out a little opening I left so I knew it was getting there.
2. Small opening near the dump tank so I foamed that.
3. Basement. I removed the panels that hide the heating vents, pump, and wiring. Anywhere I found an opening, I used the foam. Also, at the 2 plumbing PVC pipes coming straight down from the bathroom, I used it around there. It looked pretty closed up, but I did there too. I will shave the excess off in the spring.
Also in the basement, drivers side inside the door looking up there is an electrical box there. I sealed that up where the wires when in.
4. Inside the RV, under the fridge where the Hot Water heater is, there is a hole for pipes to go through to the belly. I foamed there and closed the panel up.
There is a grommet in the basement on the door side where it allows wires to go through to the outside. I put some dryer sheets and steel wool in there. Also when pulling the battery there is a hole at the base of the battery box for leakage and I put some steel wool in that hole.
Hope this helps anyone with this model and anyone getting one.
