These are covers I came up with for the hitch area. The box looking one is pressed in, then held in place with a velcro tab. Very strong velcro.

I'm not sure what to do with the step openings either.
There are no mice in the trailer now and I want to keep it that way.

an old way to do it

The most simple and safe solution that we ever used needs only a bucket, a wooden paint stick, a wire clothes hanger, a dab of peanut butter, and some water. Or plumbing anti-freeze, if you do thie over the winter.

Any one have a photo to show us this simple solution?

ps: stuffing steel wool into hidden areas makes me wonder if it might not cause rust. Isn't there brass wool available, or something more appropriate (ie less rusty?)
