We are concerned about mice etc. a friend suggested removing all linens, blankets, towels and storing at home. Ideas? Suggestion? We live in Nebraska and temps can get -20 in the winter.

Most folks worry about the issue of mice in their coach over the winter, the first thing you should have already done is to seal any and all openings in the bottom of the coach with expanda foam, this will slow down the mice, then go inside and do the same in all the areas you can reach, (under all the sinks, beds etc.) then if you have a area under you bed for storage you can put the items in plastic bins or take home. As for food items yes every single item comes out you do not want to feed the little bastards.
Now for other things to do, vacuum the coach, take out any thing that can make bedding (toilet paper, tissues) and box then up, then put "Fresh Cab" all around your coach and hope for the best in spring.
Good luck i will cry with you (will be winterizing mine this weekend) and then just dream for Happy Camping for next year.
