I have been using Fresh Cab. Available on Amazon (link) and I also found it in our local Farm Supply store.

Traps and bait stations. Bait stations allow them nto take some back to their nest and kill the rest. Have heard that balsam fir oil(ingredient in fresh cab), peppermint oil, and spearmint works. Who knows for sure.

X3 Fresh cab - I had mouse issues none since. My coach is stored on our ranch (in a building) surrounded by cattle, cattle feed and hay. Refresh (add new) packs about every 2-3 months.

I picked up some Cab Fresh this year. Also use Mouse Free RV spray on the underside. You can also use bait with vitamin D3, which will kill them and not something that eats them.

A 5 gallon bucket with about 2 to 3 inches of water in the bottom. Pop or beer can with a wire strung through it and suspended in the center of the bucket by wrapping it around the bale. Smear peanut butter on the can and put a ramp from the ground up to the can. Mice go up the ramp and jump onto can to get peanut butter can spins and mice fall into water and drown.

We tried Irish Spring chips all over.....
They ATE IT.
They used dryer sheets for nesting material.
Now we are trying Cab Fresh.

Cab Fresh for us plus sticky glue traps. Have had mice before but not since adding the Cab Fresh pouches. Put out six in our 43' rig. Glue traps are back up in case one does get in.

Fresh cab for years, never had a single mouse. Tractor Supply carries them. Also cotton balls with peppermint oil will work. I use both

We didn't use chips. Put an entire bar under each cabinet, just pulled out the drawer and threw it in. Worked fine for us.
