Keep the Rodents Out Of Your RV

Let’s face it, no one wants rodents invading their living spaces, that includes your RVs, Houston. “Mice and Rats can get into my RV”? Yes. Mice and Rats can get into just about anywhere they want to, especially if there is food. This time of year is particularly bad. As the temperatures begin to cool, animals are going to be looking for warm shelter with a food supply. Wouldn’t you, after all?

Here’s the problem. Rodents can cause severe damage to just about everything. They’ll chew through wires, gnaw on wood, and leave their feces and urine everywhere (which can cause respiratory issues, by the way).

So , how do you keep unwanted RV guest out of your RV? Here are a few hints. Remember though, nothing is going to help more than looking over your entire RV for possible points of entry. If they can put their head in it, the can probably squeeze their whole body in.


If you do have a problem, you may need to get a local critter catcher to give them an eviction notice if you can’t clear it up with food source  deprivation and traps. If you have any suggestions for PPL Motorhomes that can keep our customer’s consignment RVs rodent free, leave us a comment.

    Just a couple of things that have worked for us in our Airstream. We have made sure that every point of entry available has been caulked and for the areas like plumbing hook ups, we place 20 Mule Team Borax (just a few tablespoons) around the plumbing area in the interior. This keeps out rodents and ants and bugs. It works great since our silver bullet is in the woods all the time. The borax is very cheap and helps a lot. Hope this helps. Happy RVing….
