Mice in TV

Hi all,

There are numerous posts that deal with mice in the trailer and motorhome, but what about your tow vehicle.

I can't keep them from getting into my engine compartment and eating the insulation off the "Firewall".

I was wondering if any of you have had that problem and what you did about it. I thought there might be some kind of spray that could be applied directly to the firewall insulation that would discourage them from tearing it apart, but I have not seen anything produced commercially.

I was visiting a large ranch in South Texas when I see a line of truck with all their hoods open. I thought maybe they were not in use and maybe I could buy them cheap.

I asked the ranch foreman about the trucks, he tells me that they have problems with mice eating up their wiring and keeping the hood open keeps the mice away.
