Plethora: Good word, but just like a "discouraging word", seldom heard. It must be on the shy side.

Resurrection? Release? Change and Metamorphosis? (I think I just sprained my thumb!) Understandable, if I understand the reference. (I didn't see the movie, btw.)

Colleen - no rv experience - but you are on to two of them - sealing openings and peppermint oil. I read some of the threads - here and quick google. Figure you have same info... hopefully someone here has solution other than rent-a-cat.... I know rent-a-owl and rent-a-snake are competitors.

Thanks Steve.......no cats here I am super allergic to them, but a rental cat I would have tried. lol

We had a wiring harness chewed and replaced. I put irish spring soap slices in the drawers and cubbies and any compartments and cotton balls with pepperment oil on them (extract will evaporate too quickly) and re-dosed them monthly last winter. no mice, but then, we have 2 outside cats also....and the RV stays in our back parking area where cats live.

I went and got Irish Spring today too, thanks Marty. I have lots of essential oil in peppermint and spearmint so doing both since last night and it smells good in here.

Give them deep fried Limburger Cheese and wait for their cholesterol to skyrocket. Works on us so why not them.

Cutting, did I say it was cool here today? Well it got over it. As you can tell this old farmer is burned out early. Left the young bucks raking and round bailing, most likely well into the dark. Cutting tractor don't have good lights. Hehe! Long past stacking bales anymore!

That is the one thing I don't miss now that the horses are gone! Our neighbour cut and baled our field for us, but it never failed that he and the haywagon arrived at the barn on the hottest day of the summer for us to unload and stack!
