From what I've heard, a ring of grease on the power cord prevents ants from making their way to the camper too. If it works like it did with my jacks, it's a quick and inexpensive solution.

parking in the grass is a nightmare. This always attraced ants to mine, no matter how clean. They were not scavenging for food. Sometimes they are attracted to the DC electricity.
The biggest problem I had was the ants would crawl into the engine relay switches, and pack in as many of their friends as could fit, they would then corrode the relay with their watery dead bodies or they would get stuck between the contacts and render the relay useless. I was able to clean some, but replacing them at $10-20 each became too much, so I moved to a pay lot and saved money on relays.
This is just one ant story.
Stay off the grass or use a lot of anti-ant stuff around the tires.
