I also use the cans of foam and caulk to seal up the bottom of the camper, I also use steel wool to fill any holes that I did not want to fill with foam or caulk, say between the bottom of the camper and where the water lines come through to the pump area.

Steel wool will rust. Better hardware store will carry copper or bronze wool that won't rust.

Also check this stuff out. Recently used it to seal around multiple mouse pathways.

Has anyone tried to close that ? And if so with what,, was thinking of using some thin rubber like a piece of inner tube,, your thoughts on this ?
They sell an expandable foam with a formula that has a deterrent for mice. That’s it mice Shild

landing gear

I used some flat sheet metal, made patterns then cut the metal to fit snug.
then I used some flex-seal to seal it up and it works great.

I did the spray foam as mentioned earlier, and steel wool in holes that I may need to access in the future.

I'm not so sure I'd use steel wool, at least the finer stuff will burn pretty good with just a spark.
