I'm sorry, I don't understand the question.

Hi, I meant you can't have them in TT when travelling - they would spill? Only when you are parked? Thanks  :)

Will this solution work on rabbits? I have a friend that needed to replace his spark plug wires due to the rabbits eating them the Rv storage is infested with them.

Oh, no, you could use them either underway or when stationary. But underway makes no sense, really... how would a mouse get into your moving vehicle? The point is to keep them from getting in in the first place.

Here's Predator Pee's solution for rabbits: https://www.predatorpeestore.com/fox-urine-peeshots-for-indoor-use-8pack_moreinfo.html

Go to their website. A bit further down "the fold" on their home page they have a "pick your pest" selection on one side and a "pick your problem" selection on the other. That's how I found out about keeping rabbits out of vehicles for your friend.

Since rabbits are unlikely to actually get INTO an RV, just into the engine compartment, this should be a cheap (long-term) solution for him. Just tell him to put one open cannister inside the engine compartment. (I used to use 2, but then decided I'd take their "it works for 10 feet" directions seriously, and only use one now.)

It lasts a very long time (longer than they say it does) - at least it did for me with mice. Since he has to buy an 8 pack, he could replace that sucker every 6 months.  $30 should cover him for 4 years.

Your friend can also just call or email Predator Pee and describe the situation. They are quite helpful and knowledgeable; have been doing this for 30 years. 207-478-6426.

Sorry I'm obviously not being clear  :o  I am concerned that if we put it out and it would spill during our trip to next site the TT would be smelly or we would have to keep closing and reopening them.

More concerned that if we asked someone to store TT and we put them in, they move it and all the stuff spills and then runs out ie becomes ineffective before we were back to replace it.  Hope you get what I mean.  ;D

Anyhow sounds like I don't need to worry about spilling it. I will be getting me some of that when we get out there...

Thanks so much for the recommendation!

You shouldn't have to worry about it spilling, but if you are, just use some Fun Tak on the bottom, which is what I do with all of my collectibles, etc. that I never want to move. Stuff is invaluable. removes cleanly from everything. You could then mount on your dashboard or any surface you want, really.

If you're storing the RV, really you should have one little cannister on top of each tire/set of tires anyway, to prevent them from getting in, plus one in your engine compartment, so I'd hope once it's stored, nobody else is going to be moving it.

But from my experience, having the stuff spill wouldn't be a bad thing. It still works! And my first set of cannisters didn't smell that strongly (to me) anyway.

I have as close to proof as I'll ever need: Any vehicle parked in the same rural (gravel) driveway as my stored rig always ended up with mouse nests in the glove boxes. We had mice in the adjoining garage and even in a bat habitat box, but none, ever, in my rig or engine compartment.

But I keep telling people on this forum what to use and they keep ignoring me, preferring instead to rig up traps, go to a lot of trouble, and use stuff that someone else always said did not work for them.

I have NEVER heard anyone say that Predator Pee did not work.
Karen - I found your posts today - so Thank You!  I will be trying the Predator Pee.  Not sure if I need the liquid or the granules.  I will read some more.  I want the things that you remove the tops and leave in the engine compartment.  I can't tell from the web site if those are liquid or granules.  Guess it doesn't matter.  Won't be driving with them in there anyway - Duh!  Your posts are from over a year ago and I have not seen other comments about this stuff, so I hope that you continue to have success with it.  If it works for me, I will also post here and support this product.
