Keeping Mice Out When Stored

We just bought our first RV and it will go into storage this Friday. I have been trying to find the best ways to keep mice out. What are some ways that have worked for you? It will be in a pole barn that the owner said he would put out some poison around the perimeter of the building, but I don't want to take any chances. Thanks!!!

Rodent repellent


I'm a little too truthful, I guess.

Moth balls seem to work well, both in and around your unit.

Get essential oil of peppermint ( not peppermint oil for cooking). put 2-3 cotton balls in an old cup or glass and add 5- drops of the peppermint oil on the cotton balls. This keeps mice and spiders out and makes the RV smell fresh. I have used this method in my last 3 RVs and never had a mouse. You may have to refresh the oil once every 6-8 wks.

I've been looking but haven't found any of the Victor pest chasers that are battery operated. I won't have use of electricity in my storage facility. Just wondering.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Start with sealing up any places they can get in.

X3 Fresh Cab. And yes, make sure things are sealed. This year we sprayed Mouse Free under our camper and a family's camper next to ours. Won't know how it worked till next Spring since campground is closed. Heard good things though. If my family's camper, a pop-up, has no mice, then we have found something since they have mice every year.
