Can I assume you mean Fresh Cab Rodent Repellent? I place about 4-5 packages of it in my 5er after winterizing when I put it away for the season. I replace them once during the winter. The instructions say 1 pouch per 8 square feet. It appears to be just Balsam Fir tree shavings in a small satchel. It smells nice (if you like the smell of pine) and I haven't had any problems with rodents. I do thoroughly clean and remove any trace of food or food odors before I put the RV away.

Evening,
I've used scented dryer sheets (a half a box ) every season and so far have never had an issue.
I also ensure there are no food products at all left in the camper prior to putting it away

For the dryer sheets are they spread around or are you just leaving half a box on the counter?

Any ideas on keeping the wires underneath "chew" free!?!

I spray ammonia around the Motorhome - re-apply every few weeks and after rain.

This is my first and it will be stored in doors but in a dirt floor barn with lots of wood around. So I know there will be lots of rodents

We used dry sheets but the mice have gotten smarter. We added essential peppermint oil and irish spring as well. Hopefully this year no mice!

We've used moth balls for years in our old pop ups and our hybrid. Never had a mouse problem. And if you are worried about the smell, it goes away quickly in the spring after you open the camper.

Jeeps, yes spread the sheets around the camper. I tuck them behind the bed, in the fold of the bed, in cabinets, under the seats and on the seats .
I think a good pre-storage clean out to ensure no food products are left in the unit helps immensely.
I have placed the moth balls around the wheels (access point ) but not sure if that really helps , they disappear fast outside
