Took a Look at THE PLAN

What a great site - this saga is going to be fun to follow!

Wow! That's one beautiful 'Stream' (lucky mice!)

Ahhh .... BTW

One look at the mudshots and its a 'no brainer' that you didn't need a black light ... not sure what it will take, but it's wise to assume the lil pee machines didn't miss a thing.

(And speaking of Felix ... wonder why that cement-floored barn didn't come with a cat?)

What is interesting is that there was a cat in the barn!!!
Thanks for the input on the site.

Glad to hear you have eradicated the mouse smell.

My wife must have the same "sniffer" your wife does. Plus my wife HATES mice with a passion. She once jumped out of a moving car becasue a mouse jumped out of the dashboard AC vent. Now for the funny part...SHE WAS DRIVING!!!!

PS - Your trailer is a great find, to be so vintage and so well kept. I too liked the control panel and was also instantly reminded of Star Trek.

To be driving behind the "Mouse Mobile" as your wife jumps out would have been interesting...

Uberphotos,
The good new is she was going down the driveway and kept enough wits about her to run along side the car, reach in, and yank the emergency brake. Soon after that incident the car was traded in on one without mice. If she ever finds a mouse in one of our Airstreams I am sure she will not stay in it anymore or I will have to trade it in. She HATES mice that much!

What I need to communicate (without grossing you out) is the forced air ducts act as mouse super-highways. The galvanized steel ducts seem to preserve the trails left by incontinent mice; my ductwork had dung dunes built up. There are places you can inspect duct interiors - I suggest you check them out ASAP...

I am committing to pulling entire interior liners - its a mouse habitrail condominium!!

Sorry to be the bearer of this news but there's more where that ONE came from! I would definitely agree with Wabbiteer and Shari there aren't many places these critters don't inhabit. I found evidence, mummified no less, of them throughout my trailer including inside the duct work. Once you have cleaned up the mess sealing THEM out seems to be the next step! Do continue the story. I'm a few steps behind you looking on in the process. Luckily I'll be replacing the floors.
