We've used dryer sheets for several years and have had no mice. Plus it smells great when we take it out of storage in the spring.

X2. There is no "fix all", if there was don't you think we would have heard about it. Rodent damage is in the tens of millions across the board each year.

At night with slides closed (storage mode), flood the interior with light, crawl underneath and mark all light points. Steel wool and great stuff the openings.

For MH owners, make sure you put the air on recycle, that closes the door from the intake, which is another entry point. Also, if your lucky to have inside storage, keep the 5 gal pail trap outside your unit. Use. RV antifreeze in the bottom, they love to drink that stuff. Tastes soooo good!

We use the electronic repellents in our 2nd house and haven't seen a mouse dropping in months. I keep planning to grab another pack for the MH as a just in case measures since we have been lucky to not have any here at this house.
I recall on another thread that someone mentioned dumping their used kitty litter under their trailer. I think they figured the scent from the cat kept the mice at bay.

Happiness is just a ride away!
