    :(Have just picked up our motorhome from storage to find evidence of the dreaded mice. It is only few weeks since we were in it so not been left long. There was no food in it but it (they?) had munched their way through a foam pan scourer that was under the sink. Poo also in cupboard. Only gap we can see is in the corner by the fridge.
    Any tips of how to get rid and deter more visits will be very much appreciated. Are these high frequency noise things any use?

    Not sure if they work, but we had visitors after the batteries on our deterrent had run out.

    We killed them all ( I think) and we now have a 240v version ( we are on hook up in storage) and a battery one under the bonnet.

    No problems since but who knows?

    A good deterant are Bounce sheets that you use in tumble dryers , put them everywhere in your motorhome when you leave it in storage . It also smell nice when you pick it up . Use a new packet every time

    Can I ask how these sheets work - is it the coating or the perfume or what...? :wondering: and is it only Bounce or do other brands work as well...?

    I use rodent bait in bait boxes under the Motorhome and some under the bonnet.
    It's amazing how frequently they need topping up, little buggers take loads.
