MH-LOW-POINT-DRAINS

Mice and rodents will often find winter refuge in engine and AC generator compartments. Check all openings as well as the tops of engines, air-cleaner housings and so on for signs of an infestation. Here, there was so much nesting and chewed wiring that the generator had to be removed for cleaning and repair.
Battery maintenance is essential. Once the batteries are reinstalled (if they’ve been removed), check the electrolyte level and fill with distilled water, if applicable. Seal the terminal with battery-terminal spray to prevent corrosion. If there’s rust on the battery trays or in the compartment, consider removing the batteries and repainting the compartment.
