One of the simplest traps is to put a layer of vegetable oil and some bait in the bottom of a large bowl. Place something for mice to crawl up into the bowl. They get covered in oil and can not crawl back out

Or save a lot of money and plug the holes in your RV.

Adult mice can squeeze through holes no bigger than a dime, fill the gaps between wiring harnesses and plumbing that go through to the outside and you won't be bothered by mice inside.

I made that years ago with just a 5 gallon Lowes bucket and a piece of 2x4. Works like a champ on chipmunks too. I have seen it called the 'bucket-o-death'.

I don't care how well the holes get sealed. If there are mice, they will get in.

Not a chance in the world you can seal an RV well enough to keep mice out and still keep it moveable.

Ummm, I don't think your answer is in response to my post that you quoted.
