We had mice in our 5er the first winter we lived up here. They made a HUGE mess in the front and back basements and in the cabinet under the kitchen sink. YUCK!

We carry a product in our store called Mouse Away

You simply spray it into a paper bag (lunch bag size) and twist-tie it shut. Place it in the areas where the mice are. I placed one in the front basement and one in the back and re-sprayed the bag once per month. NO MICE this past winter!

I have tried the bounce sheets, moth balls, charcoal briquettes, poison. You name it I tried it and I still get mice in my unit over the winter. We have gone under the trailer to try and find the hole to no avail. I am a seasonal camper, what else can I do? TIA

Has anyone heard of using cayenne pepper to keep varmints away. I saw it on an infomercial trying to sell a book on natural remedies of that sort.

Well I've tried virtually everything suggested and nothing has worked.
As much as I didn't want to I set out poison. We'll see if that will work.
I know they are getting in through the holes in the frame for the slides. Can't plug those.
I find it hard to believe that the little buggers acn climb the sides of 285/75-16 tire. Maybe I should vaseline the tire sidewalls? I wonder if vaseline would be harmfull to the rubber?

I've had good luck using the poison, apparently after they eat it they start dehydrating and leave the rig in search of water. Never had a dead one in the rig and have not seen any sign of them getting in.

I put the poison in a paper plate inside the rig and also in the storage compartment each fall when I winterize.
