mice

I have. 2009 Jayflight 32 BHDS . We have a trailer parks at a season campground. Lately we have had mice getting in. I have set traps in the pantry bottom, they appear to possible come in under the tube through the hole for the tub drain. They keep to the areas under the bathroom sink as we at times see the toilet paper chewed on that we store under there.

I have been under the trailer and can. It see where the heck they are getting in from. Our trailer has the bottom skirt on and there are no holes.

Anyone have any ideas?

We had the same problem last year. Had mice and couldn't see anywhere underneath where they could be getting in. THEN WE FOUND OUT WHERE.

Our larger slide out requires holes thru the side of the frame and one of the holes was so oversized, a squirrel could have crawled thru. Plugged it with some steel wool, set a few traps, and a couple of days later, no more mice.

If you can't see from below than start by plugging the hole around the drain and any other places, sink, electric wires, etc. where they might et in.
I use aluminum screen wire forced into the hole then foamed in place. They will eat through caulk or foam so you need wire. others use brillow pads but they may rust. There is also a foam called pest block but I still would pack all holes, no matter how small with wire before I foam.
Last check all doors and hatches for even a small crack. Mice can squeeze through a tiny hole. Last, check the furnace, water heater and fridge for any holes through to the inside.

Obviously you want to find the point of entry and block it, but if you can't dryer sheets and habanero pepper spray tend to keep them out (If you can find the area the are coming in but can't find the hole itself).

Got them out of my shed out back (there were too many holes to plug), I assume it would work in an RV.
