A dryer sheet in every cupboard, drawer, between cushions, and outside cabinets. We have never had a problem and they will last four or five months.

Here's the website: www.mouse-free.com

Manufacturer recommends spraying the undercarriage 1X/year if you move your RV, as it can be washed off by driving it thru rain, etc. If stationary, they recommend 1X every 3 years.
This stuff looks awesome, its expensive as all get out, but if it works...
We use DeCon and moth balls, gross and smell and dangerous... This stuff, if it works like it says it should, i'd pay for it...

If it works I wouldn't mind trying it.

Mice had damaged some wiring in my current MH before I bought it. I know we have field mice in the trees bordering our property so I am a bit concerned.

Get the electric rodent repeller. It requires 110 v but the mice will leave the area as soon as you plug it in. I use them in my house, shop, kids play house and RV with complete success. I got mine at Fred Meyer, but I am sure Walmart has them too.

I also bought an electric rodent/bug repeller. The 110 volt was actually a 9 volt transformer, so I cut the wires, added a cigarette lighter plug, and run it on 12 volts when in storage. I have used it for about 15 years with no problems with critters. The repeller uses almost no power and has run continuously for as long as 2 months between MH trips with no starting problems from low battery.

Great idea.

mice

I have found that a bucket with antifreeze in it works very good. Put a cover with a hole in it (so they can drop in) and it will protect it from any stray pets around. Use a small board leaning against the bucket for them to climb to the top, once inside the can't get out and we know what antifreeze does to little critters.

The chap that owns the storage yard where I keep the coach told me what he does. He makes a little wooden box with a hole in it. Inside he puts the 'bar' type food and sets them outside, underneath whatever he is protecting. He even puts one by his airplane and since using these devices has never had a mouse enter. I am going to make a couple of these and put under the coach for next year.

I know this sounds a little funny, but besides putting bounce sheets in all your compartments & crevices, put a worn down battery in your smoke or CO detector and let it beep away to keep the rodents out (if you store it or will be off site for a while).
