Moryde pin box

While working on my cap insulation prodject, which I will do a write up on it another day. I noticed that there is a gap in the pin box which allows access to the inside of the underbelly cap. I have filled mine and sealed it. I took my endoscope through another hole in the pin box to view the inside of the under nose and saw what I believe is a mud-wasp home. As well as there is a space with no insulation. Not sure if these are there for venting or something. But I have sealed mine up to keep critters out and maybe from dying in my nose cap smelling the rig up.

Ryan,
Very interesting--never given that area a thought. Darn, another item on the list...

My cap hung down there and I screwed it up tight with hex head driller screws.

If that is the area over top of the hitch, looking from the rear, mine was open as well. When I had the insulation blown in, I stuffed fiberglass batting into the area. If you have insulation blown in, you can remove the two hitch lights and blow some in there, as well. Also, where the front fiberglass curves down under the front storage/battery compartments at the bottom (underneath), there was a ~2 inch gap, all the way across, between the cap and the frame; and no it was not screwed or glued. I used almost 2 cans of expansion foam to fill that area.

Thanks for the heads up. I will check that area also.

If I could afford it, I'd remove the front cap and overhang panels and have it all spray foamed. Redo the closet layout to increase storage and spray it.
