Critters

Anyone have critters chew through the insulation on your 50amp cord? How do you stop it? I keep my 5er shore line plugged in when at home and have this issue.

I don't know what critters you're dealing with? I know rats will nibble at cords and cables till their teeth get black from the sparks. In Europe it was a problem with underground power cables, then they added stuff to it what wasn't as tasteful. It might help to keep the cord of the ground and put a trap close to it met that Magic stuff in it. Or plug one of those electronic devices in near the power cable. I live near forest and with those electronic devices the critters stay away (home, shop and TT). You have to distract those destructive critters. Good Luck!

I think it's chipmunks and squirrels.

A friend had over $6,000 worth of damage to their TT thanks to a squirrel.
