Looked in search, read lots of post. Would like to get updated on what works best for Rodents repellent in MH. Seems to be that different repellents work for some and not others. We are going to dry camp with our Class C MH in high altitude in Colorado. will be leaving it park all summer. Would like to know what really works. It seems to be different in every part of the County. Thank you for your help.

First make sure that the spot where its parked is free of leaf litter and tall grass. Empty everything out of it while its stored...foodstuffs and water. The cleaner it is inside, the less attractive it is to those with keen noses on the outside.  Rodents seek food by scent.

Close off ANY AND ALL access to the vehicle...cable and hose passage ports. Some wrap their hoses and cords with 0000 steel wool to keep mice from climbing up them and into the compartments of the MH.

I saw a video of some sort of rodent deterring spray that you apply to the underside of the MH...it has oils which rodents prefer to stay away from. Search YouTube for Rodents and RVs for tips.
