My recently acquired 1968 Caravel
appears to have hosted some unwanted guests at some point. I scrubbed it out with a bleach and water solution then with Lysol disinfectant. I have placed an "Odor Sponge" inside for the winter months to see if it removes any residual odor from the trailer.

The problem is that mouse piss is very corrosive. Somehow (?) they got in between the screen window and the glass which was evident by the corrosion found on the aluminum frame.

There is a thread on another board that discusses mice chewing electrical wiring and consequences of this activity:
