My brother told me about this trick that a friend of his swears by. He says that if you leave an open box of powder laundry soap in your rv/camper/travel trailer it will keep the mice away. We don't…Continue

Thanks, Saw it on Tin Can classified and couldn't pass it up. I need to take more photos but do have more I can send. You can get me at  and I'll send them to you (don't want to fill up my quota GO RV's page till I get better ones.

I'm interested in what you've found while working on yours. Ours is intact and was a park model so there's no tankage which I'll have to deal with. There are the usual light glitches but I pulled together stop and turn for the trip back from Maine. (the 120 works perfect) The axles are interesting and info is scarce (I've never seenanything like them) so pulling them apart to do brakes will be interesting. There are a couple of windows that aren't perfect but all in all she's sweet. Actually we didn't even bring her right home, she was spotless inside so I just hauled it over to a friends place outside of Belfast ME and we stayed in it a couple of weeks this summer. PJ
