rhagfo, I like your permanent setup. So no portion of the rope light gets too hot/melts while driving? Not sure I feel confident enough to string the rope to avoid heat while driving. Any tips?

I have had it installed almost two years, no issues that I have seen. It runs near the outer edge of the engine compartment, secured with zip ties. It seems to hold up the the heat just fine.

Moth balls don't work. At all. Watch the videos on youtube from Shawn Woods. Posting again in different mouse thread. Mice don't care about moth balls, or pretty much anything. There are some good kill traps as Bill Anderson has described. What we have found that works 100% is poison bait stations. Put a couple by the wheels. Don't worry friends, we are animal lovers, with many pets. Dogs, Cats, turtles, lizards. Mice can be extremely destructive. Mice are not an endangered species. They reproduce at an amazing rate. Mice are cute, so don't worry, they will survive, but not in our $60,000 fifth wheel.

The area where my camper sits is covered with mulch. I spay Home Defense from Home Depot all around the blocks the jacks rest on and I don't have an ant problem either.

Some time ago everyone used to put dryer sheets all over inside their RVs to keep rodents out.

Couldn't guarantee if that worked or not but it sure smelled good.
