Mice are the devil…

Just a mad post about the mice that decided to make the 345 a party palace over the winter. This is one of the most disgusting things I’ve had to clean. Sooooo gross… they appear to have gotten everywhere. Already have the bed platform up, and the dinette cleaned. Now to remove the couch to clean under it, open up the furnaces to see how badly they infested them and try to clean out the dash a/c as well. Good times. Anyone want to trade a 345 for a 360 diesel pusher? Ill throw in a useable 65 safari as well. (Provided i would be able to get permission to part with the trailer. Haha)

Mice are a pain. I've attracted a mouse or two while we've called the Silver Bullet home. Seems they go straight to my stash of chocolate so they've never lived long enough to put in a change of address. The wife's has glue traps everywhere. The cat has found several which she (KittyKat nor the wife) does not appreciate. I've put poison in a lot of out of the way places. In the 345 there are a lot of out of the way places: under the drawer, under the bed, under the couch, by the heaters, behind the frig and the list goes on.
Good luck with the mouse eviction process and cleanup.

Most definitely! AS was no to good at the details of closing up the gaps around pipes and such. Here is an example on our 350.

LoLoHo dealt with this also.
Especially since they boondock at Yellowstone and the Tetons often, places that don't interfere with Mother Nature.
They're more kind to the critters than I would have been.
Catch and release
