I will add (slightly off-topic) that moth balls definitely keep the wasps and hornets away. I put some in the outside vent of the frig and hung some under the cover of the propane tanks and no more hornets!

I wonder if that would work for mice too? I had really bad mice infestation this summer.

Is there a bird feeder close to your TT? We use to have a problem with mice when one of the campers near us had a bird feeder. The seeds on the ground attracted the mice to the area. Since the feeder is gone we have not had a problem with mice. Have heard that moth balls around the TT will keep mice away. Do not know if it works or only a urban myth.

No, no bird feeders. Just 2 beagles who do catch them from time to time.

Wintergreen oil also works! Just put some on a cottonball! ( make sure you put the cottonball on a pc of foil or something like that, because that stuff will eat through plastic, so no telling what else it will eat through!!). Good Luck!

I found an opening I bet most people have overlooked. The outside refrig vents. If you look up at the outer plastic panel there are several rows with dozens of mice size openings. My fix was to hot glue pieces of course plastic filter fabric, similar to a pond filter over the inside of the holes. Takes a little time and calculations to make it work because it had to be folded. Have not seen a mouse in the house since.
