Actually the draft air will help keep dry the sewer canister, plus water normally does not flow up!! and yes, he is a very funny guy, I believe he is Canadian?

Jim,

Have you ever used a straw to sip a milkshake? Liquid does flow up.
A buddy wanted Escape to install an opening rear window and Reace said no. The draft would suck water and dust into the interior.

Red wouldn't worry about it. When he saw little brown fountains he'd just say, "maybe that wasn't such a good idea after all" and duct tape them up.

I never use duct tape without thinking of Red Green

I think those holes will also let water in, what with drafting at the rear of the trailer.
I don't drill them, because the factory provides them. Yes, strategically located drain holes are normal in motor vehicles; bad undercoating jobs sometimes plug them and cause rust problems. Escape provides this type of hole as well, to drain any water which might collect under the floor panels within low sections of the moulded fiberglass (details vary by model).

Jim,

Did you consider installing fans in the slinky holder to increase air flow?

Here is a quick picture of what a mouse did to our front stone guard. We did five day camping trip and I left the stone guards on the trailer for the five days and mouse most of the decided he liked the taste of foam at least he didn't chew through the vinyl. I noticed the chew marks when I got home and started cleaning the trailer.
