Last summer on a trip out West, something fairly ambitious got in my Silverback somehow -- my usual dryer sheets didn't help me for some reason.
In addition to pillaging food items in a lower kitchen drawer, it managed to cut all the wiring between the front of the trailer and the tail lights. No lights at all. And to make troubleshooting more interesting, the wires were chopped through in different places, meaning that repairs had to be made in multiple locations.

The rascal even carried a granola bar, which the repair guy found tucked away in the insulation -- intact and ready to be eaten at a later date, I guess.

Think it was Curly from "Three Stooges"

Oh for preventative steps for mice I posted "No Trespassing" signs on all 4 corners of my TT last fall and I had no critters

Nix the moth balls

I have classic cars and one time made the mistake of mice proofing with moth balls. Never again. My cars smelled like Aunt Hilda's sweater until August.

Now I use lots of dryer sheets and if there is any suspected access point stuff it with steel wool.

Hey everyone first time posting. I use hedge apples if you live in a part of the country that has Osage orange trees. We live in Indiana most of the Midwest have them.put them in camper in the fall 2 or 3 will do put a plastic sack under them and as they decay they give of an Oder that critters don't like. Been doing it for 15 years no critters.
