But, dryer sheets do work. I placed them in my garage to keep kangaroos out. Never have seen one yet_.

Have kept a couple of traps set near points of suspected entrance and have caught an occasional mouse looking for shelter from the winter cold. Added Fresh Cab this past winter at the same locations along with the traps, and the traps remained empty. The conclusion is Fresh Cab apparently works. Still a skeptic. Will keep the traps set as backup just in case it's a fluke.

I've found dryer sheets in the RV shredded for mouse nest material- I've also found the D-con boxes chewed up into little bits.

Do you remember the army of little metal mouse robots Boris Baddenoff created in the old Rocky and Bullwinkle episodes?? That's the kind we have, I think.

Ah, yes, the metal munching moon mice. Mayhap magnets?

Oil of peppermint has worked for us. Put a few drops on cotton balls and spread throughout the coach.
