With every new RV I have had, the first thing I do is to find every possible place anything could get in the trailer and close it with silicone, wire mesh, etc. When RV sits for awhile, I put sticky pads in various places and check the RV regularly to see if anything has stuck to them. Large spaces can be closed up with the expandable spray foam insulation, but be carefull with it because it can expand more than you want it to.

they operate on 110 volt... you can get one high powered one that does a large area but for the RV I prefer the 4 smaller ones and plug them in at both ends to make sure the whole area is covered.. I got mine at Home Despot..

seann45,

I noticed you are in Canada, so I assume you remove the battery in the winter to prevent freezing. Does the 110v hookup still work without a battery? Do you leave yours plugged in all winter?

Thanks!
Mike

if your plugged in you do not need to remove the battery as it will be kept charged... for me I winterize my RV by parking it under a palm tree till spring. I winter near Palm Springs.

We have been using "Bounce" towelettes for years. They are the kind you buy for the dryer. Place them all over the trailer ie cupboards, under bed etc.

They dont really work... my buddy parked his Jayco at the farm with bounce sheets all over the inside of it... they used the sheets as toilet paper...

Wow, do they work? I did go to Home Depot and found the plug-in high frequency rodent things. I haven't noticed any mouse droppings lately.
I would like to try the Bounce sheets tho. Good idea.

Well it is the start of Winter so a good time to bounce this thread back up.....

So my in-laws purchased a bunch of those ultrasonic plug in deals at Costco. I have always figured they were gimmicky and dismissed them. Well I am quite surprised to report that after a month I have not even seen a mouse turd in the camper or in the cabin - I am stunned. Maybe they really do work? I hear they can become immune to them over time so we shall see - but so far I am quite impressed.
