Look what I found in my floor heater ductwork.

This past weekend I fired up the furnace in my 268rks for the first time this year. The stench of urine was incredible. I pulled the floor ducting and found a giant mouse nest. Isnít camping fun! Click image for larger version

Interesting... I wonder if he has kin folks living elsewhere with the nest he build with pliers! I believe I'd do more investigating to this story. Lol

Those little rodents can get in almost anywhere and they sure make a mess.

All you got was the mouse's bathroom - hence the urine smell.

you certainly want to look for how they got in and plug that up, ... but for the ones that are already inside, IMO the old style mouse trap loaded with peanut butter just can't be beat, ... when you catch them with the trap, you know you've got them, when you use poison, you hope you got them, and then hope they don't go off and die inside the trailer, ... be sure some of the pb gets under the little trip lever, so they will have to be more aggressive in trying to get it from under there, ... peanut butter is the trick, ...

surprise-- surprise !!!

Forest River bumper hitch model 269, year 2010 but bought new supposedly new !!
Trouble with the furnace ! so I opened the trap door [ to reach the furnace ] :to find a mouse trap !!! which had been there for a long time.
So I never contacted Forest River to see if they sell all their trailer's with mouse traps !! or if it's an option !!! ha!-ha! by the way if anybody is interested in knowing the dealer here it is. Transcona Sales in Winnipeg !!! I would not buy a trailer from them again if they were the last one on earth. the trailer could not be new , I'm sure. but it was sold to me as new !!!!!!!!!

Check your furnace as well.
I had some take up residence there and only discovered it when the nest etc. was cremated.
