Good luck. Mice at through my wifes Jaguar wiring harness and it cost us $2,000 to replace it. They love to eat the wires. I would spray any wires you can find under the unit with WD-40 so they won't eat them.

I have 2 jags now and my old 84 XJS bit the valve seat bullet years ago. Wish mice would have carried that one away before I put so much into it but loved them all. With redundancies built into so many things on jags surprised it didn't have a transfer switch to a second mouse proof wiring harness. LOL but feel your pain.

Best way to stop the problem reoccurring is to have an effective baiting program running at all times. Baits in nearby areas around or under buildings and alongside and on top of the rv wheels will keep the local population down without running too much risk of having them die in inaccessible locations (which is better than having chewed wiring anyway). Baits should be placed inside lengths of drainpipe so pets can't eat them.

standard mouse trap with peanut butter works...step it up a notch and put your baited mouse trap inside an empty peanut butter jar..provided the jar is large enough to allow the trap to snap I have found that the added aroma of the peanut butter jar does the trick...I caught 9 mice in 9 days and after that they were all gone

Mice, squirrels and other rodents love wires and nesting areas.

I have found they HATE Moth Balls. Snakes hate them too.

It only takes a few as their ability to smell is better than ours.
I also use them in my shed and around the outside of the house and attic.
