EEEK! A mouse...
No one wants to come to the realization that rodents may have infested their RV. The fact of the matter is that it happens and it can cause a lot more than that “icky” feeling. Rodents will chew through wood, fiberglass and wiring…the latter can be especially dangerous and result in a potential fire hazard? So how do you keep those critters from invading your home on wheels? I have heard of people trying everything from aluminum foil on the floor, to scattering dryer sheets all over your camper. Some of these ideas work for some, for others they do not. The best way to keep mice out of your new 0r pre-owned RV is too cut off their entry points.


If a mouse can get its head through an opening, the rest will surely follow. So do some maintenance on your RV to minimize those 'dime sized' openings. Low grade expandable insulation foam and silicone caulking will work for most situations. However if your coach is experiencing an infestation, you may want to first consult a professional company in handling removal of rodents, then contact your central PA RV dealership to help determine and fix any damage caused by your unwanted guests. Safe travels and Happy RVing!

Posted this elsewhere then saw this subject.
Just wanted to pass this little information on. I grew up camping with my parents and they always put a couple of mothballs in dixie cups and placed them around the inside and all the exterior compartments. They never had any problems with critters in the campers. I now do my pop up this way. The only draw back is you need to air it out come spring time.


Don't complain, camp in the rain!!
