Any tips on mouse-proofing one's fifth wheel?Suggestions on material to use in blocking possible entry holes?Anyone tried spray repellent that is a mixture of pepper oils?Reviews of various sonic-wave electronic devices so far aren't very encouraging and I don't know what kind of effect that would have Maggie.Had sprayed the perimeter of the rig with the bug spray and the next morning found a dead mouse under the 5er near the perimeter. Maybe that had an effect? That's the only one I've seen so far.Any suggestions?

Jackie and I will be receiving a new Montana FL Fifthwheel May 1st and locating it in Pinedale, WY - with Jackie and I will be 3 miniture dachshunds and 1 katt. With winter temps getting down to a -30F in this part of the world next winter will be interesting. At least we will have the summer to gear up for it.
We have not picked out a tow vehicle yet - still plowing thru all the specs/opinions/ prices etc, all suggestions along this line are appreciated.
We are not new to RVing having a 23' Winnabago for 5 years - it was our hurricane plan while we lived on our 35ft sailboat in St Petersburg, FL for 11 years - I was a sailboat charter captain and sailing instructor down there for 7 years & sailed Central America for 2.
While crusing on the sailboat in Central America we found it almost impossible to keep roaches and mice from sneaking aboard, they would either climb across the dock lines or simply jump from the dock to the boat. Since we had our 3 miniture dachshunds with us we did not want to use any form of poison or traps - we had very good sucess using the fly trap type sticky square type material - just place them in any compartments the pest may hide or eat and at entry points. They get stuck and are not able to crawl to a space that not accessable & die stinking up the vessel as is the case with poison.
BTW -sailboats are horrible for getting mold & mildew & sweating during the colder months as they have little or no insulation in the hulls or ceiling - good ventlation is a must & we used an ozone generator ( available thru the harbormasters office) every two months or so that removed what mold/mildew we had and made the boat smell so much better - these units (about the size of a shoebox) should be available through apartment cleaning businesses/carpet cleaners - I used one on a townhome I moved into that had a smoker living in it - unit was set in place, plugged in overnight and cigarette smell was gone!!

Hi all, I heard about something called Mouse Free from a friend and decided to try it out on my RV last summer. Have not seen a mouse since! Plus it’s easy to apply, you just spray the product under the RV. It doesn’t even smell bad it smells like peppermint! So far so good! Here’s the website if any one wants to have a look, http://www.mouse-free.com
