That exact thing (mice eating soy based wire insulation) happened to my neighbors... on their Audi. It was not cheap to fix.
Yes no cheap fix.... but prevention is a key at ground level. Since my bait and roller trap all is good.

Has anyone tried using a wire loom? Or will they try to get through that too?

Haven't tried, but they can chew right through that. I don't know if they will, but they are certainly capable of it.

You may want to spray your wires with repellent to keep them off and put some sweet bait on the ground so they eat it and go look for water and die..

I dont like using anything with poison in it. I do not really want to expose myself and others to that crap. The industry that produces that stuff knows that its the human death by a thousand cuts.

In the RV world peppermint oil is supposed to be an effective repellent. When I had mice in previous RV I tried it, but it didn’t seem to work very well. I don’t like poison either, but used correctly with the appropriate bait trap, Tomcat is very effective. Once you’ve gotten the infestation under control, then you can work in repellant methods.

If you don’t like poison, I’d go with the bucket trap method.

I've never had this before since I park in a closed garage but today when I went to measure my battery for parasitic drain, I found a parasite of a different kind:
