If you're catching them with mouse traps and peanut butter maybe they
are voles and not moles

Also agree about putting mouse poison under the trailer to stop them
before they get in. We used to have an annual fall mouse infestation in
our house. We could not find where they were getting in but each fall when
the frost was on the pumpkin they would get in.
Several years ago I started an aggressive outside poisoning campaign and
we have not had any in the house since. I don't see why the same thing
wouldn't work for a trailer.

I have to store mine at an RV and boat storage facility not far from our house. It costs $30 a month.

I put in a gravel pad behind my garage for ours and use bait stations all around it for rodents. (Side note: My brother does pest control and says best way to keep mice out is to keep clutter away from buildings and use bait stations inside and out. Baitstations cause the pest to dehydrate and they usually leave to find water and die outside.) Not sure what we'll do when we get our new rig, maybe just put down some more gravel.

My present storage location is quite a distance from any salted roads. I pay $1 per foot per month.
I never thought of the salt exposure issue.
My storage facility is located on a service road that runs parallel with the Expressway. There is a ditch running longside the service road so I am hoping that any salt that may be put on this road (which in itself is doubtful) would end up in the ditch and not farther over near my TT.
I will have to watch out for the salt however, and am glad you mentioned it!
Btw....I pay $67.oo/mos including tax for a 12x30ft spot =[ which seems to be the going rate around here.

$30/mos would be in my dreams, so to speak......

Same here. I have a big backyard but wife doesn't like the look of it there by fence. So What we do is store it at a nice place 10 min away. They have nice gravel, security cameras, gate code etc. Then when we leave or get back from our trip I park it in backyard to prep and or unload.

In the winter it sits in my 40 x 100 shop

In the Summer, it sits in a friend's business lot (secured lot). For our first Winter, we are putting it on a barn in the county fairground which rents out storage space. We live in a condo and they get cranky if our Grey Wolf 25rb is there longer than a night!

We are trying something new this year. We had the camper Shrink-wrapped,like they do boats for winter storage. The material is White,7ml.and UV/protected, its like putting your camper in a bag then its heated and its tighter than a drum all over! We had them shrink-wrap it all the way to the bottom then they strapped it with nylon straps (6-straps) that are melted to the plastic so we can even pull it down the road if we want with the wrap on. We are storing beside the garage. We have pepermint oil inside for mouse control and traps outside. We also have dri-ese through out for humidity control.
