Irish Spring bar soap. You don't even have to open the box. Just put a bar in the outside cubbies, perhaps some of the interior cabinets and you'll have no problems and your trailer will smell nice.

We use mothballs and sticky boards for rodent control. We also remove the cushions and mattress from the Escape in the winter and store in the house. There is a company called wildlife control specialties run by a man named Alan Huot. he is a standup guy with very good products. He has a good website. The only thing I have not done on our metal building where we store the 19, that I am going to do before fall is to stuff spun copper wool in the baseboard flanges where I can see light. When they pick the corn and soybeans in the fields adjacent to our yard, the critters really try to move in. I'll trap 25 to 30 mice out of one of the garages in the week after they pick, then it drops off. For poison, which I don't like to use at home but used to use in my work life., I swear by one called Hawk, very effective on rats and mice.

The entrance port of a fixed power cable is the easiest.

Also, in a refrigerator vent and though any gap in the cabinetry. In other trailers there a usually a pile of other paths, but in an Escape with the fully surrounding fiberglass body and generally well-fitted plumbing and wiring penetrations there shouldn't be other ways in, but mice chew cables, hoses, and sealants.

I suppose. My 2008 trailer has the old school metal fridge vent on the trailers side that a mouse couldn't climb up to or get inside. The power cord has a locking flap.
I think, in my case, that mice are most likely to enter during a camping trip, not when stored.
