Slow, are talking about the rubber gasket seal on the underside of the hood, that closes around the cowling that holds the rectangular air filter when the engine hood is closed. Those little buggers ate that!

I've been lucky with the dryer sheets. I put one in each compartment, one under the hood, and scatter 6 more through out the camper. I also use them in my motorcycles when I store them, one near the airbox and on the seat. Mice can cause a lot of damage, and make a huge mess if left in the RV for the cold months.

Well, happy to read I'm not the only one with this problem. Caught 15 mices so far but none in the last 2weeks.
Found the nest under the bathroom sink after I unscrew the heat ventilation grill.
I really don't know what they are looking for as they is nothing in the MH. It is in storage in y backward due to my doctor advice not to go South this winter, cardiac valve remplacement needed !!!

For the mouse problem, my wife and I are waiting for the new moon to search for the entry. Big powerful flashlight inside and me crawling under to look for the light.

Will let you know if we find something !

PS: peanut butter is really the BEST to catch mices.

What kind of trap caught 15 mice?. Also, if your bringing the peanut butter into your rv, that will be a constant draw, until you deplete the area population sufficiently in this storage season around your rv.

Thanks for all the great advice! I have stuffed brass cleaning pads into all possible openings under the kitchen and bathroom sinks and I've placed cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil in all cabinets. Also put bait packs and shaved Irish Spring soap in engine compartment. So far so good. What is the white powder I see on the ground around motorhomes in the campground? Does it deter mice or just insects?

Check out predatorpee.com I use the Bobcat and Fox pee and pour it in the little 3 oz containers they sell and hang them under my TT and have not had one in 2 years.

The trap is new model from Victor, made of plastic with a close lid area where to put the peanut butter, the easiest to armed. When the mouse try to lift the lid, Kaplung !

Don't worry about the draw, the amount of PB is really small and you better believe none of the catchee where in shape to go tell the others

That's the problem with storage lots even if your RV is clean and free of food someone else's may not be and that attracts the rottens, so they go from one RV to the other checking things out. If I had my Solera at a lot I'd want to check it weekly to be sure things are alright.
