Before you do anything look around your camper and see where it's getting in. Once you have discovered a hole or two, then entice the squirrel out with peanuts (unsalted) and they love a little wad of peanut butter as well. Stand back and before you know it the little pest will come out. Scoot it off and then start repairing your camper. I had them in the insulation on my patio roof. Another good way is to get a squirrel trap. It doesn't harm the squirrel. Put a wad of peanut butter inside the cage and it's almost 100% effective. Once you have caught the squirrel drive a mile or two down the road by trees and let it go. Start repairing your camper. Tips: See if there is any damage to any wiring you may have in your camper (not likely.) Fill up the holes. Shouldn't have anymore problems after that. When storing your camper put a plastic tarp over it and each 4 corners of the tarp weigh down with large plastic milk jugs half full of water. Keeps any wind from blowing it off, keeps rain off it and also keep branches, etc., off it.

Why does a carpeted floor feel different to your bare feel than a bare floor feels on a cold morning?

Quite simply, the terms of temperature...has insulation. While the floor has insulation under it, you do not walk on it. A carpet is OVER the floor and insulation and has a pad (insulation) between it and the floor. So essentially you are walking on pre-warmed flooring. It's a big difference.

Should you insulate under the floor warming system?

In most cases, the insulation that is already in your floor will be adequate. If there is no insulation under your frame floor, we do recommend adding it.For Concrete floors, always recommend Cork insulation. Concrete slabs absorb part of the heat generated by the floor warming system so less heat is transferred to the flooring. Heat always moves toward colder surfaces, so it goes both up & down when the floor warming system is in direct contact with a slab. But, adding a simple layer of cork between the slab & floor heating provides a "thermal break" reducing the flow of heat into the slab and allowing MORE HEAT transfer into the flooring. Installing insulation on top of slab translates into more heat, faster response times and less energy used; a wise investment. There are a few other insulation materials available, but Cork is the best choice, since it is a natural product and a renewable resource, unlike other insulating products.

Yes, it is possible to milk a squirrel. However, make sure that the squirrel is a female, because male squirrel milk is highly poisonous. Place it under high heat in order to relax the squirrel. A good recommendation would be a microwave. After that, make sure that the squirrel is unconscious and then proceed to milk it. Good Luck!
