Squirel issues

I am new to the site. We just bought a 2013 Dynamax Trilogy 35RE T3. We are planning on full time camping for a while. We set up at a park that has too many squirels. Two days there the eat the wires on propane mounted tank and some lights we had hanging outside. Any sugestions on how to keep them away. Can't use gun. Any help would be appreciated.

Squirrels eating the wires!

Wow, I had the same problem with a John DEER mower tractor with squirrels
eating the wires. Wrap with tin foil, use lots of moth balls near any wiring. The odor of the moth balls usually will keep the tree rats away, otherwise get
a good shotgun!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had issues like that with raccoons. Wrapping the propane lines in tin foil seemed to help. We ultimately got a new grill with doors to the propane area.

I'm with Daisy- you're in a mobile house, can you relocate?

Looks like this will work.
Perhaps some in a cloth bag hung near the tank...
