Greasy bastard pack rats ate my wires

These bitch-ass pack rats ate the wires to my TPS. I put out a havaheart trap. If I catch the piece of shit I'm gonna put it through the wood chipper.

How does TW keep their wires safe from pack rats?

Where do you leave your vehicle parked? Is there something else attracting them to your truck?

In the Army Reserve Soldiers park the cars at the Drill center and some ground hogs or skunks did the same thing to a couple of the cars. Sucks sorry man.

I read somewhere about the wire insulation being soy based now and that causes the rodent issue , never really looked into it too hard though

if they're edible as what OZ says surely they'll come back for more munchies. you might consider a rodent repellent spray? i would soak the ground with it where your truck is parked.
