Joppy - This is getting close to home. I have blocked or screened every crack I can find and still get some mice in both the trailer's underside and living space. When I opened the furnace, I found mouse droppings and acorn shells on the floor, which means they have been in the ducts - but nothing in the fan blower. Now, traps seem to keep them under control and mice that do get in are small. But they still get in somewhere.

2015 winter we went home for Christmas. In Oct I hit the furnace and the bushing squealed as it had done for 2 first times on startup and no more but this time we were to be gone so a new motor with a bearing was installed. Not easy to remove .

My 05 Suburban Furnace started squealing in 2018. I just replaced the whole furnace and was pleased to discover the newer version is MUCH quieter.
Very Happy!
Don't know if that's true for Atwood...
