Rees,i had a field mice set up home in my Autosleeper Talisman when it was parked up on a remote field.i had the usual small items of damage as they nibbled uoholstery looking for something edable,they made a 'smelly nest' behind a panel under the sink besides the Water Pump,they did no serious damage but made the van smell 'like a hamsters cage' for several weeks.
I now use 2 metal spring type traps baited with cooking chocolate,caught one...then nothing
still waiting..seems to be the answer.Good luck.

While on the subject of uninvited livestock. My Wife reminded me that many years ago we had an adder under the bonnet. Presumably it climbed up there during the night for warmth. When we drove off next morning we must have cooked the poor thing to death as we did not find it for a while, drawn to it by the smell! So when checking for mice access, think snakes as well, as they can obviously climb up mechanical bits as well as trees.
