Northern Illinois winters

Normally when we shut down for the season, I take the battery home to trickle charge.
Now I have thoughts of leaving the battery and the camper plug into shore power.
Then get some sort of sound-wave plug in to scare away mice. Dont know how well the sound plug-ins work but this would be part of an arsenal to combat them.

Any who, 1) Im weighing the pro's and cons of leaving the battery plug in.?
And 2 anyone had any luck with those mouse sound wave plug-ins ?

I leave mine plugged in all winter long.

Does your columbus have a wfco converter?

Ms amy swears by the Electronic mouse gadgets.
I see no mice and I don't have to set traps!

I'd have to look, it plugs into the wall and the directions suggest it emits a ultrasonic noise.
It's made by victor.

Ty we love the Columbus thus far, even tho I've been ribbed by a certain someone about turning into a snooty white collar boy, I just remind him he drive a dodges so we're not all perfect.

Never had problems storing my unit at home, just at the campground.

Pick up a 4 pack of them yesterday and plugged them in the camper. According to my meter they draw 0 amps, so it much of a load on the wfco.

Is it optional to leave the battery hooked up? Or can I take it home? Dont want it to freeze (I know the wfco will trickle charge it.

Removed one dead mouse yesterday. Last 4 weeks of the season I been catching mice in traps and seeing mice droppings.
Threw mothballs under the camper, on frame and in outside storage area. Scented mouse repellent packs , bounce sheets and steel-wool in every gap.

As far as the dodge boy goes....well he is a Cubs fan so I can give him a pass.

If you haven't found a place yet, Last week we booked at a County Park in Melbourne Fl. They had a lot of spots, don't know how long you can stay. We are only staying overnight and then down to Florida City for 2 mos. But plan on spending a week there in March on the way back home.
