How to Protect Your RV from Mice and Other Pest Problems 

Summer vacations are supposed to be the stuff memories are made of, but with stories about superlice and bedbug infested hotels, traveling might seem extra stressful. Considering the mild weather this past winter, a season of camping out in an RV has never looked better. Unfortunately, household pests don’t limit themselves to houses. RVs are very attractive to rodents, insects, and other uninvited stowaways.

How to prevent bugs when camping
Why do bugs and mice infest RVs?

Camping is a great escape, and it’s the perfect time to get closer to nature -- but you may find yourself a little too close for comfort if mice nest in your camper, or ants infest your kitchenette. A motorhome or RV can be especially appealing to bugs and rodents who are just trying to meet the same basic needs as any other living thing: food, water, and shelter.

Most people don’t live in their camper full-time, so pest problems can easily take root long before they're noticed. If you leave any food stored along with your camping equipment, hungry rodents will sniff it out. Clothes moths can be attracted to bedding, blankets, curtains and upholstery -- especially if it hasn’t been washed after it was last used. Spiders love living in dark, undisturbed, places like a parked RV. Some pests are drawn to the lack of activity when your RV is in storage, but other pests become a problem when you move onto their turf. No matter what is causing your pest problem, there’s likely a natural solution to help you prevent pests without resorting to poisonous pesticides.

DIY natural pest control for RVs.

Protecting your investment and preventing damage is a big concern for RV owners, because the initial purchase is expensive, and repairs can add up quickly. If you only use your motorhome seasonally, we’ve prepared storage tips you can use to help you winterize your investment before putting it away for the colder months.

If you’re parking your RV for a shorter time between weekend camping trips, keep these pointers in mind:

  • Repair holes in screens or loose weather-stripping so pests can’t get in.
  • Use caulk to fill small cracks or steel wool for larger gaps around pipes, vents, and outside water heater and reefer vents to block pest entry points.
  • Clean up after yourself so no dirty dishes, food crumbs, or sticky spills are left behind.
  • Get rid of clutter that creates hiding places for bugs and other pests.

When using your RV, prevent pest problems naturally with these tips:

  • Inspect the site before setting up. Look for ant hills, wasp nests, and low hanging branches that might come into contact with your camper -- rodents and insects will use any point of contact like a superhighway to get inside.
  • Bring the noise. Some wildlife, like snakes and spiders, are irritated by the vibrations of loud sounds -- just try not to annoy your neighbors!
  • Make a stink. Go ahead and grill up some onions, or better yet, eat them raw. Garlic, basil, and other aromatic herbs can overpower the sensitive sense of smell insects and other animals depend on, causing them to avoid the area.

Keep pests away while camping, naturally

The best way to preserve the good and prevent the rest!

Stay Away® is made with essential oils and plant fibers, so there is no risk to people, pets, or the planet -- it works by using natural scents that overwhelm common pests.

Interview With RV Dealership Owner | Mice in Campers

Posted by Rita Stadler

May 29, 2013 1:21:00 PM

We've been friends with the folks at Riverwood RV for a number of years.  They've long known the importance of protecting campers from mice and the benefits of using Fresh Cab rodent repellent.  Tom, the owner of Riverwood RV, was kind enough to sit down with our team member Becky and talk about some of the problems mice can cause, what needs to be done after finding mice in an RV, and what does and does not work for keeping mice out

Investing in an RV can be a considerable expense.  Protecting this investment is important, not just because of the expense, but for safety reasons as well.  This is where you, your friends, family, and pets will be spending time, eating, and even sleeping.  This is not a place where you want to find disease carrying rodents, droppings, nests, or damaged wiring and equipment that can pose health and safety threats and lead to costly and time consuming repairs.

Becky knows all too well about the problems mice cause in campers as she recently had a rodent run-in herself.  In the video, she tells Tom about her incident and he isn't the least bit surprised.  Many years of experience have taught him what to expect, and he shares that wisdom with us.  They also talk a bit about the cost of repairs, which can make anybody cringe after already dishing out thousands of dollars to purchase an RV.  Using Fresh Cab to protect campers and RV's is much less expensive than paying to repair rodent damage!

To learn more about Riverwood RV and what they can do for you, check out their website, or visit them on Facebook.  Don't forget Tom's sage advice, "People that like their stuff and don't like mice like to use Fresh Cab."


Natural rodent repellent is the best way to get rid of mice and protect your belongings, but it's important to follow a few simple steps:

  • Remove any food from the boat before winterizing. Seeds, nuts, and anything of the sort, will attract rodents like peanut butter.  Not only do rodents like to eat the food, they like to make bedding out of the packaging and plastic wrappers are perfect for that.
  • Leather and cloth seats are appealing to mice.  It doesn't matter what kind of interior you have, they will destroy it.  Mice can chew through anything that is softer than their teeth.  Leather, interior upholstery and coverings definitely fall into that category.
  • Mice also enjoy chewing wires, filters, and mechanical components because it feels good on their teeth.
  • Tarping the top of your boat is awesome to keep it clean, but won’t do much for mouse prevention.  Mice can fit through openings as small as a pencil eraser, or just chew a nice sized hole to move through.
  • Place Fresh Cab® pouches in and around the perimeter of the inside of the boat.  For jet skis, place the pouches under the cover, under seats, and entrance to the engine.


Team Fitzgerald's RV Checks Out Mouse Free

Remember 6 months ago, when the calendar indicated winter was coming but you were still sporting a summer tan?   Those memories may seem distant after all the cold and snow winter brought, but if you're getting your RV ready and gearing up for summer fun, you could find yourself facing a reminder of what you did or didn't do last fall.

Did you properly pack up your RV?  Did you safely store summer items?  How thoroughly did you clean out your camper?  Our friends Guy and Dan of Team Fitzgerald made a helpful video last fall showing how to keep mice out of an RV before storing it for winter, and were kind enough to share with us how the RV they used in that video fared during the deep freeze. 

Watch this video as Guy explains how much trouble mice can be in a motorhome and what it's like to open up an RV that's been protected by Fresh Cab.   He'll show you where mice might be if they had nested in the camper over the winter months, and where he put Fresh Cab pouches tokeep mice out.  Guy also reminds us of the importance of using Fresh Cab year round so mice don't move into a camper that is parked for a few weeks between trips.  If you've ever had problems with mice, or think you might, Guy Fitzgerald knows, "Fresh Cab is your answer!"
