Birds on top of slide, under topper

My trailer is parked in my drive and I just noticed bird dodo, all down the side of the slideout. [slideout is in, for the winter] Evidently the little birdies are perching on the top edge of the slide, under the slide awning!!!! Anyone else have this problem? What could I do to keep the birds out?

Why didn't they go South, with all the rest of the 'Snowbirds'????

You might try hanging some bird deterrent tape around your rig. It's a mylar tape, very thin, lite, and red on one side and silver on the other. It waves in the breeze and the reflection of the red and silver tape seems to keep the birds off. I'm using to keep a woodpecker away that caused extensive damage to my roof.

Too cold and windy today to get the ladder out to measure. I'm kinda thinking of maybe getting a swimming pool noodle and sliding it in, between the awning and the top of the slide.....but where would I be able to buy a 'noodle' in the winter, in Northeast Ohio!!!

I have always loved your sense of humor.....but, not so much right now!!!

Not scheduled to go back to Florida til sometime in Jan or Feb....by then, those darn birdies could have a condo built, large enough for all their buddies and their buddies buddies!!

If you could attach a plastic Owl on the roof of the RV that will probably keep the small birds away.

I understand the cold and wind.

If it is not too big blow up a balloon big enough to fit, wrap the balloon in aluminum foil and stuff it in the hole.

check your local K-Mart, they may have some stocked in their back room. I went down to ask them to check and found two in the back room. I use them to cover my wipers and a short piece to go over generator exhaust where it sticks out from the RV body.

If you cannot find a pool noodle you could use some Styrofoam. You might be able to pick up some scrap Styrofoam at a building site.
