GHO, now that you remind me I knew that most birds don't have much sense of smell. No I have not tried that for birds but for other varmints which why it came to mind quickly.

Had some build a nest in mine about a month ago. Opened the slide and the eggs broke. Quite the smelly mess! Clorox clean up and tossed the nest and they haven't been back since.

Will have to come up with something that I can install on the slide ends that covers the opening when closed yet allows for the slide topper to roll up and roll out. Did some searching and didn't find anything. Not sure what else to do besides just keep taking the nests out.

You might try a little rubber or plastic snake or alligator attached to your tt slide. Sometimes the birds will think its a predator laying in wait and they will leave. Might be worth a try.

Maybe a predator on the top of the ladder?

I have the same problem with nesting in my pin. A rubber snake seems to have stopped that. Hope i remember to remove the snake when i sell the trailer. :-)

The past 2 weeks I haven't encountered any nests so maybe the nest issue is over.

If the birds are damaging the rig, then you must weigh the cost of repairs against the cost of the fine if you shoot them - and get caught. There's also the fun factor to consider.
