    Regrading mice …. cut up a few bars of original Irish Spring soap , ( has to be the original ) place the cut up pcs of the soap in netting bags , I get the little bags at the dollar tree , think they are called organza bags , there are 8 of them in a pack, for $1.00.You can re-use these bags to put you soap in next time . The soap should last a few months before you have to re-fresh it . I re-do my bags every 6 months with fresh grated Irish Spring soap. At the dollar tree where I got mine they were hanging up on the wall where all the party stuff is. . You can use a grater for the soap, if you would rather grate the soap instead of cutting into tiny pieces . I use 1/4 bar of soap for each little bag . Usually I make 50 bags . Place them every where… all your drawers , cabinets , even shoes , boots that you don't wear very often . Under sink , under sofa , every where . Another thing I do is put pure peppermint oil , has to be pure oil . Save your caps from your water bottles , place a cotton ball in each cap , 25 to 30 drops of peppermint oil in each cap/cotton ball , place those around in different areas of your rig . All your have to do is once a month drop new oil on the same cotton balls that are in the same caps . You can get real peppermint oil from swanson when they have their sales , I get the big bottle ( 16 oz) , last a very long time . Doing these two things worked for me . It goes without saying don't leave any crumbs of food around that can be tempting to mice . Store Your food well . An Elderly Man told me these hints , he used them in his camper . Hope someone finds this info handy . P.S I got the original Irish Spring soap at Sam's Club 20 bars of soap for $8.88 These also makes good little house warming gifts to make for someone who is moving into a new rig , etc . You need to use Your own judgement on how many you think you need for the size of your rig , camper , etc .Note:: If You are allergic to any of these items , don't use them . You have to use common sense on how much to use depending on the size of your rig . Always becareful where you stick things so not to catch on fire , melt , etc .

    I watch AStreamin Life on YouTube, they use solar lights to keep critters out. They have no problems with mice now.
    I am positive they have a video about it.
    Thank you Robin for these videos! I learn so much from you on the view Q! You are doing a great service with this channel, I truly appreciate you!

    Ps. That wind was wicked- how much does your rig move with those type of gusts?

    Q! CLOTHES!!! Limited space vs wide ranging outside temperatures. So far I know I need underwear no matter the season or location. After that, just how much of the rest do you need to plan? Shorts, capris, jeans, winter weight. Shirts: tank tops, short sleeved Ts, long sleeved Ts, turtlenecks. Jackets and cotton, flannel, fleece, button up shirts as a layer. (Not big on hoodies) Winter gear. Footwear. Rain gear. If I plan for every situation, there would be no room for toys. My toys and time to play with them is just one of the reasons I want to get rolling. Lots of boondocking due to limited income might mean up to two weeks of clothing. HELP!

    Since the coatings on your motor wiring are made out of soybean products it attracts rodents. Your wiring must be protected. I have had good luck with pure peppermint oil. Only spray on wires & not into openings.

    I can't believe people just come and knock at your door. If I seen you out I would walk by and wave but I would never think of just knocking. That could be so scary for you. We all know you but you have no clue who we are that's scary for you.

    That's awesome to know insurance will cover that. I'm a adjuster and we don't cover on homes any damage to attic from mice, squirrels etc. The only coverage is raccoons because they are from the bear family and not rodent. So good to know. I don't do a whole of RV claims.

    About a month after catching 5 mice, I awoke early one morning to a rustling sound. As I very slowly crept through the rig and approached the front driver's seat, I saw a tiny cute mouse munching on cereal crumbs in an open bag in the trash bin. We locked eyes. I asked him what he was going to do. He asked me the same question. For about 5 seconds we just stared at each other. Then I quickly closed the top of the bag and that little guy didn't even flinch! I hollered at the hubby and proudly told him I caught a mouse with my bare hands!!
    We now have dryer sheets and peppermint spray everywhere… Which reminds me that I need to replenish both to keep the RV smelling like a laundromat at Christmas!!
    BTW, I appreciated your talk about the ex-pat experience. Thank you.

    Hi Robin, it’s been awhile since I’ve been here, still feels like home! I have a question about your work. Are you Independent Contractor, or are you working for certain company/companies?
    Thank you, and hope you and kitty have a lovely week!

    my rv had a mouse one winter…the glue trap got him. when i first bought the rv, there were mice droppings inside as they lived inside in the winter. i did use spray foam to seal the main channel for them to enter from the dump, water area.

    I had been parked in Tuscon with a large group of single people and woke up one morning to find feathers in my bed. I turned my pillow around to find a hole in it. I also noticed a hole in a cavity on my back wall that I thought a mouse had created. I was certain I had a mouse on board. I took my cupboards apart but found no evidence of any creatures. I sprayed Raid down the hole and sprayed peppermint mouthwash all around the exterior of my rig. I layed awake at night listening for critters. Nothing! I pulled up in Quartzsite later waiting for my spot to park in and did an inspection of the exterior of my unit. I noticed a small hole in the back and immediately thought "bullet hole". I ran inside and felt inside my pillow which I hadn't discarded (I just put it off to the side when I slept as it was part of a matching set). I felt the bullet inside. I called the police and they sent 2 officers from the homicide division. It was a 38. I still have the bullet hole on the back wall covered in hot pink duct tape. The officers told me to go buy a lottery ticket. The pillow was the one I slept on at night. Lucky! Not going back to Tuscon anytime soon!

    Hi Robbin, my wife and I spent the month of September on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon boondocking off of FR 20. We caught 17 mice during our stay and I couldn’t figure out where they were getting in. We moved to Flagstaff for October (boondocking) and were having the same issue. I found through other full timers that Irish Spring soap keeps the mice away. Our rig smells of Irish Spring, lol but no mice. 🐭

    I just wanted to say HI Robyn and let you know this is my favorite channel mostly because i feel like I can relate to you so much we are the same age with our significant others but would still be solo on the road, that is what i will be till Billy can come with me, that is whenever i get to start, I will be starting my solo trips this January and going full time after I dont have to take care of my mom. I think going full time then will help me get through taking care of my mom and then losing her. Okay i am just babbling now but I know a few things when I do get on the road i would love to meet you and a few other people i follow for some advice or even a caravan. Robyn thank you so much for what you do and safe travels Nancy

    Blue light causes permanant eye dammage and the only way to stop it is to not look at it. You can get blue light blocking glasses. Your phone has a setting to turn off the blue light, your screen will look slightly yellow.

    Also blue light interferes with melatonin production. Another reason to avoid.

    Hi Robin, I have a week-end travel trailer, when stored over the winter I store Irish spring bar soap in my storage compartments. I'm told mice hate the smell, I don't know how true that statement is but I don't have issues with mice.
