Brass wool won't rust like steel wool will. We've used that with good effect too.

Mice Issue

If your AS has a back bumper where the electrical cord is stored, it is easy for mice to access that area. Once inside, I had one small and one large access hole into the trailer. Insulation was being pulled out of that area. I used foam and a tin can lid to plug the larger hole and a plug for the smaller hole. I also had an issue at the black water plumbing outlet. Also had some rivets come out on the belly near this plumbing. I used snap traps with peanut butter bait on a plastic cover inside the trailer. Check traps daily. Finally got rid of them.

Camping world sells a rodent repellant that is balsam shavings. If you like the smell of the NC mountains, it is a great way to keep the mice at bay and have your trailer smell like a deep woods experience. It is called Fresh Cab. Here is a link:

After tearing one completely apart I would look first where the septic exits the AS. Mine was built very poorly around this area. 1971 Safari.
