Cab Fresh inside (smells good to me...bad to mice)
Moth balls outside on the ground & a few in the jack base plates (smells bad to all)
Remove all food after each trip
Don't store paper towels or tp inside (nesting material)
Worked for us! no mice in almost 2 years.

We trapped several (5 or 6) inside before we decided we we luring the mice in with the p-nut butter in the traps...decided we preferred to keep them out! The cab fresh & the moth balls seem to do the trick.

first,leave no paper towel or kleenex boxes or toilet paper or soap....i fill a tall plastic bucket with about 6" or more of water...i put peanut butter 2'or3'inside just below the rim...then a small ramp up with a nail at the top so it does not slide..the mouse go up,try to reach the p.butter and fall in the water and drown....I empty the bucket and refresh works some point they stop coming i do put peppermint oil here and there in drawers etc....Living in the woods ,its unavoidable,they do come in to find a cosy place to spend the winter and have babies.....Plus the fact that i have a minn.Pincher helps...good luck!

Ya, My house is surrounded by woods as well. Seems like a constant battle to keep them under control. I found a product called "Fresh Cab" that seems to be working. Keeps the MH smelling clean too.

Mice intrusion

QUOTE: "Just can't seem to see how they're getting in and how to stop it. Any suggestions on how to stop this rodent issue from running away with my MH?"
When I removed the rear nightstands on each side of the bed for access to replace turn signals and backup lights with LED bulbs - I discovered Airstream's poor design (not only for access to the bulbs) but in body construction. There are big holes open directly to the outside, making it very easy for mice intrusion and nesting underneath these cabinets. No insulation in that area either. On one side I was able to use Styrofoam attached to luan to block the hole, but on the fresh water inlet side along with the generator transfer box - all the wiring- it is impossible to block hole efficiently. I will try to post pics.

I screened all the openings (including the tube steel in the front end), and put dryer sheets all over the place during storage. Have traps outside. Have never had a mouse in six years. Maybe just correlation not causation.
