Default Check gas cap light

My 2012 citadel just had the check gas cap light on. When I tried to clear the code with my OBII reader no codes came up. Called the dealer and they said I need to have the tank dropped because a mouse may have ate on the hose (Never said anything about maybe changing the gas cap) Whatever. I'm assuming the computer has to run so many cycles to reset this code. Is this correct? Any suggestions? BTW Vehicles appears to be running fine.

Not sure you get a code if that light illuminates. Not sure of the drive cycles but seems like it was 3 or 4 to reset that and a P0456, Small Evaporative Leak which was usually a loose or bad cap.

I had this a few weeks ago, I cleaned the gasket on the gas cap and re-tighted it.
I took a couple days, but it has been off for a couple weeks now.

It takes a few start/cycles before it will go off.
