Critter entrance

Does every Georgetown (or FR product) have the molded fiberglass tunnel to the outside with an inside opening beginning in the rear of the sewer bay? Does anyone know what the purpose of this duct is?

In any event I'm going to block it because I have a problem with small critters getting up in to the ceiling air conditioning ducts. I know this because I have frequently found little piles of white foam pellets in the A/C ducting and down on the floor under the A/C ceiling ducts. I couldn't imagine how the critters were getting in until yesterday when I found the same white foam pellets (from foam insulation sheets) in the sewer bay.

Not sure how the Georgetown is set up but could it be a that you are to run the sewer hose through it?? It would go out of the bay to the campground sewer line.

That is supposed to be the "storage" for the sewer hose. There should be a little door on the end of it that swings open and the hose is supposed to stay coiled up inside it and connected to the outlet pipe all the time. I found it to be a complete PITA so it was the first thing I removed from the rig the day we brought it home. I just feed the sewer hose up through the hole in the bottom of the bay and connect it when dumping. When done I coil the hose up in that compartment. Much easier than messing with that poorly conceived hose thingy.
