Does anyone have a sure good method that works either to kill moles or repellant and also how to keep mice out of the rv during winter.
Thank you,
Ron.

Not to be cute but Lucky our rotty/shepard mix smells moles out, digs them up, crushes them and moves on.

For mice we take anything that a mouse can use for bedding and put it in a big sealed tote. We also vacuum the pantry and make sure all crumbs or other items they like are up. Never have had a mouse problem and we live in the country. Our current fiver has a sealed underbelly save the front legs but that is independent of the rest of the fiver.

Moles? The only way I have ever seen to get rid of them, and keep them gone involves getting rid of grubs. Nothing to eat? Gone.

Moles, I used to watch the tunnels as the were digging,then just pour some gas on the end. For mice,mothballs work good,but you need to really air out the camper afterwards. I dump a box in our sheds every few months.

At our seasonal campground, a camper a few sites down from us, put mothballs under the trailer, not inside the trailer. I'd smell the mothballs whenever I'd walk by, but inside the camper it didn't smell if the door and windows weren't open. I would imagine mothballs outside would work better than inside as the mice wouldn't even go near the trailer.

Use a product ti kill the bugs in the ground and the moles go away. Also a heavy dose of lawn fertilizer will run them off

For mice, you need to plug ALL the holes on the bottom of the RV. I used steel wool plugs then filled them with spray foam. For moles, park a running lawn mower on top of one of their tunnels for a bit every couple days and just let it run until out of gas. The racket drives them nuts. And as long as they get crazy before you do, all will be well.

Heard that as well from exterminator.

OP, we live in the mountains where mice are prevalent.
Only method that has ever worked and we've tried everything under the sun is simply prevent entry.

After dark, turn on every light in trailer and open every cabinet door, pull out drawers.
Now climb under trailer with a can of spray foam and chase the light.
