Ok the title is a joke but for real in the morning it sounds like a little mouse runs across my roof for 3 feet and stops. Or sometimes it sounds like a rodent runs down the front of my trailer. Its a front bedroom model, gel coat, no ladder to climb down.

It first i thought it was crows. I run outside to scare them away and there is nothing. Then i thought maybe its a squirrel or lizard. They are abundant right now. I have a surveillance camera on my roof that i turned and pointed towards the sound. I have not seen a single bird or squirrel in the last few days with that test.

It just hit me......could it be the sound of morning dew water? The sound seems to happen the second i wake up. I used to think the sound woke me. Now i wonder if im shaking the trailer when i wake up and causing water to drip?

Of course i need to go outside and look for water next time this happens. Figured it would be fun to ask here and see if others had the same issue of thinking there was a mouse in their walls. But turned out to be something else.

Well, when I heard sounds... it turned out to be grandfather rat... He was going up the wall inside, across the ceiling and down the other side. I opened a junk drawer under the refrigerator and this huge rat jumped out and then ran into the bathroom.. gee thanks! So, mine was really a varmint. Good Luck.

If you hear a faint "Yipa, yipa, yipa!"
Don't bother to try and catch it!"

My walls make noises in the am when the night time temps get below 50 or so when the sun heats it up.

I also have heard birds hopping around.

Here is one from left field. Years ago in our truck camper I woke to a sound that could have been running on the roof or small things falling on the rv or something else. It turned out to be a bunch of unused hangers in the closet that bumped together when I or my wife moved.

Sitting at my computer I see movement out of the corner of my eye. MOUSE!!!!! Sticking it's head out from under the sofa. Set out 6 traps. Caught him that night in the glue trap. Hate those things, but I grabbed the grabber stick and put the entire thing in a bag and tossed him out.
