One more solution to this mice problem is buying the stainless steel scrubbing pads (Not SOS) you can get at the 99 cent stores. Stuff them in those holes, (including vehicle frame)

Did that on my Airstream I use to have. Even the rats hate it cause the steel cuts up their insides !

......just saying

You are so right Safari that I just add some BullDog steel pad. Thanks.

Ok, I think I solved the problem for good. Even with screen and bulldog steel wool, I caught 3more mouses !!! I must specify I live in a wooded area, lots of mices !

BUT, finally found where they were getting in. TADAM ! By the opening around the shower P-Trap of the shower. I stuffed it with steel wool, no more mices , none for the last 2weeks, hourra !

Leaving tomorrow morning for Florida with no aliens aboard !

Pedrodasdas, can you just summarize for us "S" model owners, where you found the problems voids, in addition to the shower P trap, for those critters to enter. Thanks

There are only two major opening you need to stuff with steel wool.

The water pipe entry behind the hose compartment and the upper portion of the shower p-trap.

They are both located in the service bay where you plug your electricity and water.

Take a look at Tommyb pictures and mine.

We found mouse dropping under the sinks and in drawers. No sign in the living area (thank goodness). I don't see any droppings in the water/sewer service compartment. I am currently pulling the panels in the rear storage to see if I can locate an entry point.

Now that some time has passed, do any of you feel your efforts paid off or have any new insights?

Thanks

I haven't seen any since I had the problem last Winter. I did see something in motorhome magazine where they rented a smoke machine and charged the motorhome with that fake smoke they use at Halloween. Once the MH is charged with the smoke they started looking for the smoke coming out of openings, then just close up the openings. Sounds like a idea any way.

I've heard throwing some moth ball underneath your RV will keep rodents away. I haven't ever tried it.

Same for me, no more mouse since we block the sewer pipe around with steel wool. In fact, we did got one more, catch it then notice the steel wool has shifted with travel. We put it back in place and secure it. Smoke trick from Hkreck, I love it !

I know it works on snakes, had a couple under a step once, put some moth balls down there and those snakes couldn't get out of there fast enough.
