We park our trailer beside several hundred acres of soy bean fields. We use dryer sheets in the unit and have never had problems with mice. We catch about 6 a week in late fall in the house so we know thel mice are there. Dryer sheets work for us.

Keep the shiny side up.

We had the same problem with mice in Colorado. I had read that steel wool at the openings would work. The only opening I could find was in the rear bumper storage where the power cord, ect. enter the trailer. Stuffed the steel wool around it and have not had a mouse since. Either fixed it or we haven't been where mice live.

I'v seen mice climb up the jack post and gain entry to the end of the frame. They then can run along the frame and get into the trailer through any little hole in the floor. I spray the post with oil to make it harder to get a grip.

Here's what I did to sove my mice problem. I went to a farm supply store (TSC) I bought a large plastic dog water dish and mouse bait packets. I drilled three holes appox 1 1/4 inches in three places in the water dish next to the rim. I placed about 3 mouse poison packets on a piece of aluminum foil with just the corner opened and covered with the water dish. I placed a weight on top of the dish to keep out pets. I then sealed everything that looked like a mouse access with spray foam insulation. So far no more mice.
I placed this between the axles under the bottom of the camper. Mice are looking for food. Give them food outside and they won't come inside looking.

I hate to say this but if the mice make themselves at home in your camper snakes will come in also after the mice. If a mouse can get in so can old sneaky snake.

Or in our case, weasels....

I wondered why all of a sudden I didn't have any signs of mice - 'till my dog sniffed out a weasel who had set up camp in the rear end of the trailer....

Mice or weasel....which one shall I choose....
