RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

How often do you have to replenish the peppermint oil? Will it last all winter? We check the rv a couple of times during the winter. I usually refresh the peppermint oil at least once during the storage period.

RE: Keeping mice out what do you do?

In my previous rv, a travel trailer, I tried Irish Spring soap, dryer sheets, and Fresh Cab. None of those worked. And specifically, the mice built a nest in the Fresh Cab. I finally tried oil of peppermint. I dropped three to six drops of the oil onto a cotton ball and put three cotton balls in little aluminum foil trays. I put these trays in every possible location where a mouse might go, particularly the under sink areas, drawers, cabinets, closets, etc. No mice! Not only did I have no nests, but there was no indication they were ever in those areas with the oil of peppermint. No indications of mice anywhere in the rig. I endorse oil of peppermint. I use it now every winter. It is intense immediately after you open up your rig for the season, but by removing all of the little foil trays and opening windows and airing out your rig for a couple of hours, the scent is gone.

RE: Outdoor "mudroom" to prevent cat from door-dashing?

Here is something to try to keep the cat from rushing the door. It was a great training aid for ours. Get a can of compressed air made to clean keyboards. Keep it outside (if the biggest problem is upon entering the rv) and have another inside if it's going both ways. When you go to open the door, be ready to give them a squirt of air. Cats hate that sound and should back off immediately. It won't hurt them, just aim it away from their facers. Do it every time, and soon they will not approach the door at all. If they start rushing the door again, start with a shot of air again, reminding them. As I said, it's worked great for my two cats. They now just move on when we go to open the door.

How to Paint Bathroom Sink

I had a minor disaster in the bathroom lavatory sink in my Everest, when the Damp Rid bucket I had in there over the winter got wet, overflowed into the sink and damaged the finish. It now looks like camouflage (yuk). I think I should be able to paint it, but I don't know what kind of paint I should use. Has anyone done this successfully? Will the paint Krylon makes for plastic be durable enough for the sink or do I need something more specifically designed for a sink/shower? Another thought, would the Gianni countertop refinishing product be durable enough? I might be able to get close to the original color/finish with that product.
