  • Fabric softener sheets to keep rodents away.

    When storing any vehicle or enclosed trailer for an extended period I always put Bounce (or store brand) dryer sheets into places where critters like to enter or hang out. Put a couple in each cabinet or storage area, under sinks, in generator compartment, under couchs, around dinette cushions, in closets, in the opening of furnace vents, refrigerator vent & mechanical area, hot water heater vent & mechanical area, in the engine exhaust pipe and in the opening of the engine air intake. Could be some others that I haven't thought of but hopefully you get the idea.

    Use caution not to leave any of the sheets anywhere when you are going to use the vehicle. If not removed some of the dangers include pets or small children eating them, engine or generator intakes getting clogged, and/or furnace, fridge or hot water heater fires.

    You should be able to do a large motorhome with less than one box of dryer sheets. This has worked flawlessly for me for many years. Hope it helps you!

    Interesting addition to this thread.... recently I was having a campfire discussion with a friend about the mouse infestation every winter in his Ford F350 cabin air box. Apparently the mice living around the barn where he stores it for winters like to use the dryer sheets to make their nest. He has tried blocking passageways with mothballs and even opening air box and filling it with mothballs for winter storage. Still mice and a huge stinky mess in there every spring.
