What kind of ants? Big ants or small sugar or ghost ants?

I’ve had good luck with this. Follow the ants to see where they enter and leave a squeeze a small amount in their path. They will take back to the nest..

You can get this in most stores. I get it in Lowes.

I read that sprinkling a bit of cinnamon in a ring around the wheels and jacks will create a barrier that ants will not cross. I tried it and it worked. I watched the ants try to find a way around it. Though the ants were already inside so I had to resort to ant traps for a while.

I've also gotten ants from parking in contact with a bush. Cinnamon does not work there. The solution is to avoid any such contact with the RV. This includes grass or weeds under the RV.

As mentioned above, the Terro works well on sugar ants.
Fire ants will ignore it, and Amdro will work if you're parked where you can find the mounds and it's permitted.
For any kind of ants, diatomaceous earth will work on any bug that crawls over it. Unfortunately, it doesn't like getting wet, so you may have to reapply.
We've used Lysol to kill them inside the trailer.
You need to put all the food you can in plastic to minimize the smell of food an keep them out of cupboards.

Boric acid dissolved in water to make a paste and add some sugar, then take it back to the nest and die.

This is what most professional ant remedies are based on.
