Sealing a Flagstaff 831 against varmints(mice)

Please factory or other: please comment on the most likely places to foam seal against mice. I have crawled and foamed every place i can see under this 2011 Flag 831. Still have mice coming in. Upsetting..
Difficult to see how the panels at front panel and rear panel can be sealed, but can mice enter there? Slide rods are vulnerable, but i have foamed and made rubber seal.
Where to look next?? Poison is NOT a solution. they are already in, and the point is to stop them prior to entry.

I believe a mouse's body will fit thru a spot if they can get there head thru the opening.

If you think it's your jack stands. Might try to put a 2-3 band of grease to band each leg. Can use brake cleaner or starter fluid to remove it when u have problem under control.

Heard moth balls throw under the camper and points of contact with ground. Never had tried it myself.

Lots of ideas about smelly products, grease, poison, etc & size of a mouse head, BUT i have filled all the spaces under trailer i can see. I would like to know where the factory has left openings that i cannot see that may be out of sight behind a panel or elsewhere. Thanks all.
