I used to use dryer sheets. They worked well.

Urban legends abound and the dryer sheet solution seems to pop up regularly. they have been consistently been shown to NOT repel mice under repeated tests, any more than peppermint crapola and Irish Spring soap. Read up on the internet what works best, stay with legitimate sources and avoid Facebook like poison ivy.
I might be willing to give Fresh Cab a try. It gets good reviews and is available at Tractor Supply.

I have had good luck Filling the Holes. I use steel wool and foam, Mice won't eat the steel wool but will pull so I used the foam to secure it. I had one RV that needed about 8 square feet of under belly material to close one hole at the back.

I don’t do Facebook just market place won’t give the one sided media my support, but the previous owner has iris spring in there already I plan to take tires off n install steel slippery support that they can’t climb, it’s going to be a engineering feat may make steel wheels or a piece that bolts to brake hub so it can still sit on ground?? I don’t like to lose!! It’s going to be a war!

Fill all holes with brass/copper wool and pest formula spray foam. THEN, Purchase Mouse Free spray. It's available with a spray gun. Coat the ENTIRE bottom of the RV including jacks, stabilizers and whatever else you can see. This has a peppermint like smell and a light vaseline type feel. Rodents hate it. I have been using it for 4 years now and have not had one mouse inside the 5th wheel. Wear coveralls and a painters hood when applying. I set my compressor at 60 psi. for the pattern and reach that I like. I will be respraying it this fall just because........... Amazon and others carry it.
