We have been having a rodent problem in the dioghouse on our rig. I had some gopher poison, so I made a tray to set on the engine and filled it with the poison. they have emptied the tray 3 times and still come back. Tried bounce sheets tucked in around the intake manifold where they were building nests. They pulled the sheets out and went ahead with their nest building. today I added generous amounts of D-Con. I will check in a couple days to see if I have accomplished anything.

One of the easiest ways that mice find their way into your trailer is the electrical cord. The cord makes a ramp for the little critters to enter. If I leave the cord plugged in while in storage, I place 3 balls of steel wool around the cord inside the storage compartment lid. They won't chew the steel wool.

I have never had a mouse in this rig, but we did have one building a nest in our last rig in the drawer under the bed. I add fresh D-Con mouse bait in October each year in the 5vr basement. I have dryer sheets every where in the rig and of course fresh ant traps at least twice a year. This is the fifth year with the 5vr and we have not had a serious pest problem. Ants one time but now I carry ant poison and look for ant hills each time we hook up in a new campground.

One place to look for intrusion is the refrigerator roof vent. Many have a poor excuse for screening under the cover. I have only had intrusion one time and that was where they came in. This is especially vulnerable if you are under trees.
