I once worked for a fire and smoke restoration company. they used a product called (excuse the spelling) Necroban (sounds like neck-row-ban) It's put in a house after a fire by a machine that causes the soulution to flood the house with a thick whiteish cloud of smoke. And it removes ALL remnants of the fire smell and leave behind a real pleasent clean smell. That's the route I'd go unless I was just hell bent on replacing the insulation. I myself would try anything, before tearing off an RV roof. Only one thing would put me in that frame of mind. Leaks and rotten panels on the roof. Remember, everything inside on the cieling first has to be removed in order to take everything on the roof off. If you have a rubber roof it will have to be torn off and you cant reuse it. that alone will set you back over $1K for it and the adhesive. Long story short.....When you get rid of the mice, let modern chemistry get rid of the smell. Smoke and fire restoration companies are all over the place these days and will only set you back about $100 bucks if you deliver the RV to them, and it only takes a couple of hours at most. Good lick with you decision..

I think i'd just leave the dead critters up there and repair any exterior damage like you said, Henry.

Taking the roof off is such a big deal, at least for someone like me, i'd probably just do a proper fix and keep bait in the rig... we also use "bounce" fabric softener. works here in the us so far, but those canadian mice are tougher!

Be interesting to learn how you proceed, Dick.

(henry, thanks for helpin as always... we're on the road and just rolled into Colorado)

Dick I hope you know what your getting into. Removing the roof of any RV is a nightmare even for an experienced RV mechanic (and I am one) There are things on the market that you can place in the coach that when the mice eat it they dry up and basically desolve. There is no oder, or very little. But it soon goes away. The way I deal with it is to place Moth balls or moth flakes about the coach along with the poison rodent bait. Mice don't like the odor of moth balls and tend to move out of the area. Stuborn mice eat the bait and die. It will get rid of them if you can live with the smell of moth balls for awhile. If the RV is parked for awhile and not lived in for a couple of months, This method will drive them out or kill them.
Good luck whatever your decision

Henry
