Sparky, Glad that your first trip was enjoyable. Keeping ants (or other creepy crawlers ) out can be difficult when you have little ones or pets or both. We (now that we are just two adults) use bug spray on all things that touch the ground wires, hoses, stabilizers and lead to entry points on the trailer. When we had little people we used Vaseline on wires and hoses as a deterrent but still used bug spray on landing gear and jacks.
I hope this is what you were looking for, Hank
