Here is what we use. These only work when we have power and we very seldom drydock.

Also, if you don't have screens, you can put steel wool into the openings for your vents. You can still use the vents or the appliances, but the mice won't be able to get in.

We stored our old fifth-wheel in a barn. First year, we got mice after using just the Bounce dryer sheet treatment. Last year, we used the dryer sheets, cotton balls soaked in peppermint oil and something called Cab Fresh (or maybe it's Fresh Cab), which is some sort of natural rodent repellent that we get at our local Fleet Farm store. When we picked up the trailer out of storage this spring, we found virtually no evidence of mouse presence. So we'll use all three of those things again this winter. There's no kill like overkill when it comes to keeping mice out of the trailer, I say.

My sad story:
in '99 we bought a competitor's popup and had it parked in the same location for 10 years, had no issues with mice. in'09 we bought a competitor's expandable and for 2 years had no issues. Always winterizing with sealing the vents and loading the campers up with mothballs and dryer sheets. About 3 years ago when we opened it up in the spring to get it ready for camping, we found the drawers filled with "chocolate sprinkles" and nests in the oven and bathroom vanity. On our first trip that spring, we opened the front bunk and found where they had eaten through the tent screen. My wife being crafty, cut the screen in the shape of a crescent moon and stars and sowed in screen patches. It actually looked kind of cool. That winter I did the norm for winterizing, plus went around and stuffed every hole with fiberglass insulation. The following spring. Everything looked good. No nests in the oven or "chocolate sprinkles" to be found. But good news didn't last long. I opened the front bunk to find they had destroyed the tent material and the mattress (several deceased ones still there). Had to order a new tent and a mattress. Last fall a friend recommended a pest away product from Lowes. It was advertised to keep rodents and deer away. It was flakes you would shake out around the camper. This spring we had absolutely no damage or signs of mice (PC no mothballs or dryer sheets were used).
