Sealing up the water bay
Tip of the day. While inspecting the water bay on my 320RS I discovered a problem. The bay door when closed does not seal against the water bay. This creates a perfect space for critters (mice, ect) to gain entry to the inside of your rig, especially if you are in a wooded camping area. The space is 3/4" wide, plenty of room for "Mickey" to slide by.
This has happened to me twice in previous RV's. The entry is always the same. The rodent will crawl up a water or sewer hose, gain entry into the water bay, then right on in to everywhere else in your rig.
While I was working in that area already, I made a simple brace to stop the critters cold. Using a piece of 1X3, I cut it the height of the water bay. A few notches in each end, and secure to the front edge of the water bay with a few screws from the inside. Just make your cuts to match the lip of the bay door frame, and when mounting it, be sure to close the bay door as not to interfere with the normal latching position of the door.
Easy stuff, and it may save you some "furry" headaches!
