H'mm, a few things about your pic,
The critter may have come from inside the camper. The Que was built differently than the Sunline travel trailers, so I am not 100% sure about this, but see if this fits. The yellow power cable comes out of a drilled hole in the wood of the roof opening and then turns down under into the living space side of the ceiling, along with the black power supply cable to the roof unit. A ceiling air box should be up against the inside ceiling with the control knobs on the ceiling. Did you take the inside ceiling air box down and see if mouse droppings were there?
You asked if the insulation was supposed to be in the blower wheel; the answer to that is, for sure, no. The debris on the front of the inside coil suggests other critter activity at some time in the camper's life. I agree that the critter may not have come from the outside roof area; the drain holes are small. If the critter did come in that way, how did they pull all that insulation in and not disturb it?
There is another explanation: if there are no mouse droppings anywhere, just dirt, the insulation may have been inside the blower wheel from the day the AC was installed. The color and style of the insulation do not match what Sunline used in the 2006 or 2007 model travel trailers. But, the Que was made differently, and it may have been from the Que attic.
Another more intriguing question is whether the AC unit does not look original or Sunline changed something from the brochure. Would you happen to know the brand name and, ideally, the model of that AC roof unit? It was built very differently than the Dometic Brisk Air AC Sunline had during that era. It is built a lot better in many regards. I suspect someone changed the original AC unit along the way.
I have never seen the insulation in the blower wheel before. Learn something new every day here at Sunline Owners Club!
