When the Cat’s Away…

Mice inside your RV are not only messy but destructive as well. One of the most common entry points for mice is where the water hose comes into the basement through a standard 4-inch hole.

To block this entry, I bought a cover that is designed to fit the hole. After hacksawing out a section just large enough to accommodate the hose, I cut a piece of SOS steel-wool soap pad large enough to stuff in and fill the hole around the hose. Mice will chew on cheese, electrical wires and plastic water lines, but not on soapy steel wool.

You can sleep tight in your RV because not a creature will be stirring — not even a mouse!
