When you want to sell it, the turkeys usually pay more than it is worth. They do serve a purpose. I was once a turkey, but I married a native girl (they wear down jackets, not grass skirts) and have been allowed to stay.

Actually my turkey problem stoped. I saw him out there standing about 4 feet away from the trailer just looking around then he went away. I guess he tired of beating his head against a wall.

Turkey problem

Reading through this thread reminded me of how we never know precisely how wildlife may react to our Airstreams. I believe that it was after the 1998 WBCCI International Rally in Boise, Idaho when I made a side trip to Yellowstone National Park and I first encountered a wildlife situation involving an Airstream. I had taken a Gray Line tour out of West Yellowstone, and we encountered a wait of over 45 minutes. When we approached the source of the delay, it was a mirror polished Airstream motorhome that had been charged by a large, male bison who saw his reflection in the motorhome. On a different Gray Line tour the next day, the news was that the Airstream had to be towed from the scene with what a local shop had estimated to be in excess of $10,000 in damage.

We use the motion activated sprinklers for turkeys, muskovi ducks and Canada Geese. The geese are the worse so we often send out our retrievers.

Yep…my childhood best-friend and fellow eagle-scout moved up there after acquiring his forestry-degree… he’s your neighbor just above Montrose…. he married a local girl and has melded into the Thirteeners about 30 years ago… happy he is…

I was in Santa Barbara RV park, a brand new baby blue Honda Accord drove up. within 5 minutes a wild Turkey showed up and destroyed the paint job. This poor car did not have a real license plate yet. The owner was pissed! Demanded the park owner pay for the paint job, The owner said I dont control wild turkeys, call the county.......Sheriff's showed up and everything. I think a sign saved the owner of the Park, right when you drive in "Beware of the Wild Turkeys"

I've had bird problems like the OP. Everything from turkeys to cardinals. I've found sheets of common waxed paper taped over the shiny spots being attacked solved the problem. Only really needed in the periods leading up to mating season.

Wrap the bottom 3' in something non-reflective, anything. Otherwise the toms will continually dent your AS.

In many areas it is not legal to kill wild turkeys outside of hunting season.
