Please do not use poison. As part of the process of killing them, it makes them thirsty. They leave the RV in search of water and can be eaten by birds of prey or the family cat which will eventually kill them as well.

Or, they go off and die, only to be eaten by an owl, or some other bird that I would rather not see dead on the side of the road because they ate a poisoned rodent.

I use cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil (NOT extract as someone warned about in an earlier comment) and placed in an old margarine tub, dryer sheets, and Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent packs ( https://www.amazon.com/Earth-Natural...mice+repellent ).

Haven't had a rodent problem and don't have to kill them (or cats, birds, etc. that eat mice).

Thanks for all the suggestions. I think I found where they're coming in from the drain pipe below the bathroom sink. I stuffed the opening with steel wool as well as the opening from the water lines located behind the toilet and going into the vanity. We also placed different packets of natural rodent repellent purchased at our local RV dealer that they recommended. See how all of this works. Thanks for everyone's input!

Bounce

We also use bounce inside and place moth balls all around the tires. So far so good.

I don't see that as a problem . they eat it , it makes them thirsty they head outside and die . done deal . i've used it under my house for yrs and yrs never a smelly dead mouse in or under house . I've got my unit sealed so well a tick can't get in . But where i'm camped there are plenty of deer mice running around the abandoned mole holes . I put decon out for them . in a trap like device so no dogs or cats can get into it . after a few days i don't see the little buggers running around . and have not seen a dead bird, dog , cat etc

Let the cat loose. Once the cat's scent is all over the trailer, mice will look for cat-free accommodations.

REF: Mice

We use bounce dryer sheets throughout the trailer. We store our 5th Wheel Trailer at our permanent site in a wooded area and have never had any issues with mice. We always remove any potential food sources obviously, but the dryer sheets have worked like a charm for us for several years.
