Reports vary on that score. Some folks swear by them. Some folks swear at them instead.

I've never used one, but I've also never hit a deer. My dad never used one, but did hit a deer. Once. I don't personally know of anybody who has been in a second deer/vehicle collision whether they used a deer whistle or not. I'm sure there are some drivers who are deer magnets, but I don't know any.

So maybe it would be better just to go ahead and hit a deer and get it over with, because the chances of it happening again are vanishingly small.

Think I'll check w/ my body shop mgr the next time I see him. I've always been a little skeptical of them.

I have no personal experience with deer whistles but a couple of game wardens told me they were ineffective and in their opinion lulled drivers into a false sense of confidence.

You have to remove the recessed storage area that has bungie straps when the cargo door is open. There is a stopper on later year models that prevents the door from opening all the way. That made it a bit harder to remove but it can be done with a short Phillips. I believe it was 8-10 screws that had to be taken out to get to the relay.

Here's the location. Obviously it's behind the door.

Guess I'll be busy in am.
The relays are behind the recessed storage area?

Yep. Getting the panel off/on was the worst part.

Our used sprinter came with a reimo patio room. When it was up at star parties it was great to keep equipment out of the dust and out of site..lots of room and looked impressive bit it was huge to store (got to store telescopes and mucho equipment) and it was a pain to put up. Like your description everything was a little off. Hardest part was how to attach it to the roof. Think it was meant to have rain gutters on the vehicle. For sale. $200. Just too much hassle to put up.

Hey, I'd love to know where I can get cover for my two burner stove. Mine didn't come with one and I don't see ready made add ons. May have to make one. I wanted a cover for the sink but I use a hospital plastic tub (smaller than I can find anywhere and fits inside the sink and saves water) and inside that I store my dish drainer and other loose kitchen items when we are driving so don't think the sink cover would be useful. But would like the stove top cover.

Also,'I agree about the storage. When packed it's stuffed. Wouldn't help to have the space collapse.
