The peppermint seems to work well for me. I had heard that using dryer sheets worked as well, however I recently found an old mouse nest with, guess what, a dryer sheet imbedded in it. My father always swore by mothballs, but I truly cannot handle the smell.

So after sealing the undercarriage, slide rail holes, all frame holes and every factory oversized penetration I still managed to make a mouse house. Of all places I found they got in at the bottom of the main slide! With the slide in there are two openings up against the wall at each end of the slide which looks to be a spot for water to drain out after the slide seals squeegee off any water on the slide wall. I placed a rag for now in each of the openings and I could see them from below. This will be a common point of entry among most of the rock wood flagstaff line. I'll post pictures later. Looking for a permanent fix but they haven't got back in after a week as all the traps are empty and no more turds after a hour of cleaning up their mess earlier in the week. They got into everything except sealed cupboards etc. It was gross 🙊

You'll NEVER be able to seal it up, mouse-proof. If it's cold out, they'll get it. Best thing is to kill them once they're inside. I've been waging all-out war with the mice this winter, and the Rat Zapper is my primary weapon:

I've moved the trap between the XLR, the wife's Jeep, and my house garage, so they don't get too used to it being in one place. The results, since Thanksgiving week:

TW: 36
Mice: 1

Only 2 have been in the XLR (and that includes the little ba$t@rd that got into my furnace and destroyed the fan on our last trip, that's where their 1 point came from.). For some reason, they love the wife's Jeep, that's where I've bagged most of them--they build nests in the glove compartment, in the heating ducts, they truly are little $h1t$.

Once the cover is off I'll have to find a permanent solution.
