Ceeping Critters Out Of Camper

Getting ready for winter, and worried about critters making there way into the trailer over the cold snowy months.
One of the local RV centers offers a "mouse proofing" where they spray the underbelly of the rig with with a mentholyptus gel.

Anyone have any luck with this?

It's rather pricey and I wonder if I may see similar results by "painting" access points like the stabilizer jacks, jack stands, and plumbing where mice might climb up with something like Vicks Vaporub.

Any other suggestions on critter proofing is appreciated!

Plug all holes in the under cage with "000" steel wool and use painters tape to cover the vents for the furnace, range hood, & refrigerator.

That should be all you need unless you have a huge rodent problem.

Also do not forget to tape the mouse hole cover for the electrical cord! DW's sister and her husband have two trailers in woods, or very close to them, and have been having the covers opened by mice! He plugged the smaller trailer today before we left, with steel wool, like as mentioned above.
