Do not waste time with moth balls and the like

What else needs to be done...I will cover it once the cover arrives and she will stay with me at my office, so I do plan to get out there every other week to start her up, and move everything around...

any other things that I need to do, moth balls, mice traps, I saw something about dryer sheets....I have no idea what to do next, and of course when I bought it, the manuals are missing, we are waiting for them to arrive.

thanks in advance

P.S. I think I have knicknamed her "cruisin in the slow lane"
First thing Congrats on your nice coach it is nice to see someone really want to care for their coach, as for mice the best thing to do is purchase peppermint oil and get some cotton balls and some plastic gloves, or just purchase from (How to Use Fresh Cab | earthkind) of look on amazon for freash cab also, but you need to put them in basement locations and any lower cabinets that mice can get into. Also you should take a very minutes and open all you basement cabinets and look "up" and have a can or two of expandable foam with you and plug up and and all holes lets from building the coach to slow down there ways in.
After all that as you stated you7 will be checking on your baby so just keep and eye out and if needed put for fresh cab out during the winter.
Happy Camping and pray with all the other campers who want spring faster then it will be.

Check cabinets for that last soft drink, spaghetti sauce or anything that might freeze and explode!
