I don't remember exactly where we got the pest repeller as we had it for
several years. I just recently adapted it to run on 12v. The brand name is
Weitech and it is a model 3500 (1-800-343-2659). I'm not sure if they still
sell these or not. However, you should be able to find one that does. Just
look for a pest repeller that uses a power supply that converts from 110v to
6v, 9v, or 12v. I suspect that any pest repeller that uses a power supply
that plugs into the wall with a cord that plugs into the actual device will
work. Then go to Radio Shack and pick up a 12v adapter that will supply the
correct DC voltage. Be sure to take the original power supply with so you
can match the tip size for the Radio Shack adapter.
Hope this helps.

For several years I have been bothered by chipmunks and other small rodents nesting and storing food in the engine compartment of my truck. A couple of months ago I learned about a product called "Fresh Cab" that comes in a packet that you hang on something. I tried one, putting it well out of the way of engine heat or sources of combustion. So far there is no evidence that the rodents are even interested anymore in their former favorite hideout. We are coming into the season of the big test as they look for places to overwinter.

Here is the description from the Pioneer Heritage website:
"The original FRESH CAB has a woodsy scent and made with corn cob chips is an excellent Moth Control and Rodent Deterrent.* Long lasting pleasant scents and safe for people providing a wonderful aromatic air freshener. While our special blends of indigenous prairie plants release a pleasing scent, ancient volcanic minerals absorb and trap unpleasant odors such as cigarette smoke, must, mildew and pet odors for up to three months."

The URL Is: http://www.pioneerheritageshoppe.com...erapygifts.htm

I plan to try them in my A/S this winter, if only to keep down the musty odor that seems to develop from being closed up.

Good luck!
Eugenie

Question How many mouse threads do we need?

Nearly everything that has been mentioned here has been discussed on other threads. CoArgosy78 tried to steer folks to other threads but was ignored.
Why do we need umpteen threads on the same topic?
How hard is it to do a search on a topic that has been posted over and over again before starting yet another one?
Mouse: 101 threads
Mice: 85 threads
Rodents: 28 threads
Sorry to sound off but I fear that we are burying ourselves in redundancy.
Guess I better squeak outta here and take my meds.

Rog,
You're right on the threads, but think of this - if everyone looked up old threads all the time and never asked we wouldn't have any redundancy to keep our forum interest alive. The rehash makes us all remember things too.

Exactly, I suspect just about everything has been covered on this but you never know what new ideas will surface about a subject. If we didnt rehash, why have a forum.

May I have some cheese to go with my whine?

Sorry to be so grumpy. I just get tired of mice popping up all over the place when I surf the forums.
On behalf of the varmints, who can blame them for wanting to live in an Airstream?
I think I've developed a case of moustrophobia.

Two questions: 1) How are they getting in?, and 2) What can I do to stop them? I live in Western Kentucky and the airstream resides in a barn with the 110AC on to keep the batteries charged. Thanks for any help.
I have some experience with rodent/mice infestation and was very concerned that when I bought my first Airstream that I would not accept one that had ANY evidence of mice. Those of you out west may remember the "Four Corners" episode with mice infestations and the Hanta virus in humans.

I know it happens frequently and it's a reality, and the posts offer some great advice. However, if you have had a mouse problem please check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site. We all want to have fun and enjoy our Airstreams, lets do it healthfully!
