Before we started full timing and going to Texas in the winter I used to place small dishes of moth balls in the rig. the mice don't like them. never had a mouse problem.

Bedding etc washed and stored in the house. No beds for the mice. All food and dishes, pots etc also inside. Refashion everything in the spring. Mouse traps, bait, definitely. Fridge empty, turned off and door propped open. Bi carb inside.
Cupboard doors and drawers open.

The usual plumbing treatment.

We used to use mothballs but I couldn't stand the stink for the first month the coach was out of storage. Now we use Dryer sheets. Pick them up and toss them away and they leave a much better odor behind which is gone in a couple days. I do toss some mothballs around under the coach after I park it for storage.
