Mouse-Free Product

I am parking my new 14.5 Interstate in my barn (rural area). The mice have gotten into my other motorized equipment from time to time (tractor engine, garden tractor engine housing, RTV, etc.). I just watched a video about an undercarriage spray-on product for RV's called "Mouse Free."
Has anyone tried this product and, more importantly, does it seem effective?
The cost is $99.00 per gallon, which is advertised to be sufficient for a 24' RV for one year. The web site is Keep Mice and Rodents out of your RV | Mouse Free.
I am new to RVing and this is my first post. I appreciate any advice.

We use Bounce dryer sheets and have had no mouse problems. The smell of the sheets can be a little strong but for long periods they work well in our '76 Ambassador. My DW puts the sheets near any areas which have holes to underbody or outside.

I had mice in my battery box, chased them off and put some dryer sheets inside. It seemed to work for awhile, but then I found them building a nest right on one of the dryer sheets. We have rural property with lots of mice, and the airstream is parked on a gravel pad we had built, not sitting in a grassy field. Maybe it had lost its smell, not sure, just my experience.

Peppermint oil on cotton balls works well too, although you do need to renew the scent from time to time.

Without a certificate to say no edibles were used in the manufacture you can bet they will be working to get in and set up housekeeping. eddie has the right idea peppermint oil, $25 pint goes a long way by the drops on cottonballs. Odor is pleasant but does need renewing. Do not leave any food product in the rv, wrapped or ziplock bags, they will find it.
