Newbe here, just where do you put this stuff. Under sinks, cargo holes, around tires, engine compartment??? Would spraying Peppermint oil/stuff around/under coach help?

Think putting 4x4 piece under each tire in outdoor storage would keep the out, hard to climb the tire if don't like to walk on it, along with Fresh Cab or something like that.

Need to locate where the mice are coming in. Mine was coming in around the steering column. I packed it with steel wool and I have not found any new mice droppings.

Ah yes, the infamous Adirondack Mouse Trap as I have heard it called. Works great...no need to re-bait...just empty it every couple of months. Great call.

I only put the sticky traps where I have access to them and check them occasionally. Never had a problem except one night I could hear a small rat trying to get free and kept hearing the rattle sound threw it out with the rat during the night and by morning they both had disappeared and figured that a racoon had him for a midnight snack.

Unless you have an on-board swimming pool/Jacuzzi or a major water leak they won't die IN your coach.

The d-Con poison forces them to search out water as they are dehydrating from the inside out.

If you use sticky traps or any other type of traps, YES, they will start to smell up the coach when they die. That's why I prefer d-Con, they feed and go away.

If the steel wool packing can get any access to water, even high humidity, it will rust and become a real mess. You can buy aluminum wool which would function the same way will be a lot less messy in the long run!

I used poison in my stick house crawl space once and found decomposing mice in the attic, that's when I quit believing that they always search out water and die

This has worked great for me, but I noticed that I stop getting mice after a few are in the bucket with water.

I have started using peanut oil instead of water and more than a few inches too.
My thought it will help cover the odor of death which turns later mice away.
