Interesting thought there sask. We've never cooked in our trailers. The pop-up had a removable stove and we always used it outside. By the time we got our fist hybrid we were doing all of our cooking on a tripod over a fire and aside from warming things in the microwave, no cooking inside.

I checked and what I used was called "Fresh Cab". I got it at a farm supply store but I've since seen it online.

I think that this maybe the real reason that my trailer did not get mice. Nothing to attracted them to our trailer.

I cooked outside on the BBQ and only used the microwave. The stove was not used at all.

I don't think food smells alone are an attractant. We do everything in our camper just as we would at home, including cooking. When its 20 below zero, mice look for places to nest. They will try to get inside any structure or cavity. I have found dead mice in my ATV air filter box. No food in there..

I've used "black cat" brand (I think) mouse bait for years in my shed which is located about 20 yds from vacant land that is mowed for the hay 2-3x's a year. Never had mice chewing on the boat or mowers, or anything else stored there. Used the same stuff in the GH over this past winter and no mice anywhere. I get it at WM, comes in little packets that the mice have to chew thru to get to the bait.

I had trouble with pack rats a few years ago. They made nests in my class-B MH engine compartment and chewed wires etc. The neighbors have cats so I won't use rat poison (if a cat eats a rodent that ate the poison, goodbye cat).

I bought a mothball product that had a plastic hanger and hung them outside, one under the front, and one under the rear of the vehicle. I didn't have a rodent problem after that. There was minimal mothball smell inside the vehicle and that smell dissipated quickly when we opened the windows and went camping.

There's no proof that the mothball product worked. The rodents could have moved away or been killed by the neighbor's cats. On the other hand, maybe the mothballs were a reason for them to stay way.

Stuff any openings to the outside with steel wool. They can not chew that up. You can find all of the openings by, at night, slide under the RV and have someone inside shine a flashlight at all of the possible openings. Plug each one with steel wool.

More and more Jayco's are coming with the thermal package with the corrugated plastic. Makes it impossible without ripping it all out. I did use steel wool around any hole I could find around the slide outs though.
