Mice

Park unit at horse ranch and have had a bit of a mice problem. Tried Irish Spring and moth balls but traps seems to be the best. Have done an under inspection and for the license me can’t figure how they get in. Any ideas?

I haven't tried it myself but a lot of people report that they have good luck with Fresh Cab.

I crawled under the rig for days after we first bought the 24R. There was a fist sized hole only partially filled with expending foam just behind the rear wheels, driver's side. When you look at it, it seems fine. But reach up and explore with your fingers and there are large gaps! One was so big I had to put in wire first for the rodent proof expanding foam to hold. I found 4 such gaps wherever there was hole in the floor where wires or pipes entered.

We still get occasional mice, but this winter after using traps for 2 winters and still getting mice, we used peppermint oil on rags. The rig was stored at a friend's farm, and we had "0" mice over the winter. I was impressed.

Glad to see this thread. No mice in mine but I saw one in my garage this morning so I need to be proactive.

Mice up here eat Irish Spring and cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil. Bounce sheets they leave alone. This past winter no mice, new SOB trailer seems to be sealed up better than the Rockwood. Could be just lucky so not counting my chickens quit yet.

The other thing I tried was to use a high intensity light under the rig at night and crawl around inside looking for light. That helped to locate some of the spots.

We are dry camping near Moab. There in the door was the cutest big eared mouse. I hate to say, but we have rat poison in the mh already so we put it out. I really hate for a hawk or other predator to eat poison. However he’s alive and well, saw him just one minute ago rooting around in my back pack. Wish I were fast enough to get a photo. We’ll obviously have to get some traps and try Fresh Cab.
