My manual indicates that I should start the engine twice per month to keep engine lubricated but if I do that there will possibly be a condensation issue. Cant win for losing, which way do I go?

For the mice here is a system used by cabin owners in NH..take a 5 gal bucket and put about 3-5 inches of rv non toxic anti freeze in it...take an 10 or 12 Gage wire and put it through the top to bottom of a soda can and suspend it from the edge of the top to the other edge of the top of the bucket, if you will it will look like the wire a trapeze artist walks on with a soda can in the middle, suspended over the anti freeze. Make sure the can can spin and put some peanut butter on the can as bait.

What happens is the mouse walks the wire to get to the bait on the can. The can spins and the mouse falls into the antifreeze and swims till he drowns. It is crude but effective. And it will fish all winter with no attention needed. The mice die and they stay in the bucket. I use in the house basement, and yes i have cats, and in the basement of the coach and one in the main floor of the coach. Put a plank as a ramp to the edge of the bucket so the mice can get to it easy..it works as I had mice one year and put them in coach and none since..

Just get some cotton balls, and sprinkle a few drops of peppermint oil on them. Stuff in all the entry holes, around the tires. Where that oil is, the mice won't be.
