I also found that putting the vinyl wheel covers on reduced but did not eliminate mice. The above solution works well and is easy to do anywhere.

I am careful to make sure the cord for the trickle chargers does not touch the ground.
That's the kind of idea I was looking for. Do you put the flashing flat and park the tires on it or wrap it around the wheel so it's vertical? Last year they climbed up the inside of my vinyl tire covers and chewed up the soft lining.

I just make the flashing big enough to have several inches of flashing completely around the tire. When we park it at home on a concrete pad I tape the pads in place and DW guides me to the right spot (she always does).
