How to keep rodents on the outside

I have a new 396xl motorhome that seems like it has a lot of open doors for mice and chipmonks to enter at will. I need some ideas on how to seal this unit to keep these visitors on the outside.

When the cats away

This is my first season to store an airstream. I placed mothballs freely underneath the unit and in the trunk. Every time I have checked since then I have been rodent free. Also, if you do a search under this subject, you will find that this thread has been addressed before and there are some helpful hints concerning screening and things of that nature. Good luck, and enjoy your trailer.

rodent proof

Springtime following our trailer's first winter, I found LOTS of evidence of mice (droppings, etc., no damage). Needless to say this did not thrill my wife (me neither), so since I keep plugged into shore power over winter, I plugged in an electronic sonic pest-repeller inside the Bambi which emits a sound wave inaudible to humans and pets but supposedly repels not only rodents, but insects as well. Darned if I haven't seen any evidence of mice this year yet.

Maybe too early to say for sure, but worth a try! HomeDepot, etc for about 10-15$.
