Had mice in our 5th wheel Crusader too. Spent a lot of time with the expanding foam and the spray can of car body undercoating to close up all the holes in the frame for slide rails etc. Also installed screen material to cover some that I could not use the foam on. Have been lucky and I stopped to mouse problem. Had to also use steel wool in the bottom corners of the slides in under the seals.

Baking Soda

We're camping in so. Illinois and the host told us to use baking soda sprinkled under the sinks and drawers. Said the little critters can't belch or fart so when they groom themselves, they get a good dose of soda and leave for water. Said he hasn't had a problem since then!! Guess they blow themselves up!! Anyone else use it?

I'd still rather keep them out of the unit than let them in and use something that might work to chase them out. They are so messy and defecate wherever there manage to get to.

We even tried Fresh Cab and it didn't work. Maybe we have some sort of super mouse on the farm!

Had no luck with Bounce. The mice even dragged the poison blocks onto the Bounce sheets to eat them.

The last couple of years I pull the trailer onto ramps I built to get it higher in the air. I park it out in the open, and use 12 packets of Fresh Cab placed throughout the unit. Steel wool in possible entry areas. I store the trailer covered.

So far, so good!

The most important part I believe is not to have ANY trace of food in the camper.

That, and plug up any place they can get in---easier said than done in most rv's.
