I agree with the copper/brass wool to stuff. I'd also add some oasis (the green foam that florists use) soaked with peppermint essential oil. They hate the smell and avoid it.

A round plastic insert like suggested in a previous post would be the simplest and easiest if made out of a coffee can lid, etc. inserted inside the compartment. Even the top portion of a plastic soda or water bottle would work.

Get a bottle of essential oil of peppermint. Put a few drops on a cotton ball or two and place them in an old juice glass or ash tray and put one in front and one in back. I have had mice in my garage for years, but none in my RV that is parked next to the garage. You need essential oil, not peppermint used for cooking, Also do not get it on floor or cabinets as it will damage them.
