Has anyone here used "Fresh Cab" in their RV's?

I just came across a web site for "Fresh Cab" which is an all natural method of rodent control for RV's, etc. I am just wondering if anyone here has tried it? I am thinking of trying it for next yr. I have two boxes of 120 sheets of bounce in my camper and 2 huge containers of salt for the condensation. If Fresh cab works as good as they say, I will be using it in the one room in our basement where mice seem to come in every fall thanks to us installing vinal siding.
Anyone have any experiance using this stuff???

Karalyn, I have no experience with Fresh Cab, but I'm going to try Bonide Repels All, all around the house foundation and put some in containers under my trailer to see if I can keep the Feral Cats away! It seems cheap enough to try: Bonide Repeals All. In your case, I'd think something outside to repeal, would be a better idea than in the basement when the rodents have already gotten in YMMV

I am thinking that any repellent you use for rodents may be more effective if it is not INSIDE your rig; they get the scent and come in to feed but if you have it in a somewhat protected container nearby or under the unit they never have to come in. Some of the products are activated once they drink. We had to destroy a mobile home when raccoons came in to feed on poison and crawled into the under-floor insulation and died ... how inconsiderate... made a very big and expensive bonfire ! There is little hope of getting that kind of odor out of a rig.

I have been using Fresh Cab for a few years in vehicles and campers and like it. As with most opinions here, it is a debatable issue, but I think it works and will continue to use it.

We had great results last winter. It worked great, and I like that it's all natural.

I love fresh cab. Have used it for two winter storages now. I put a pouch in service vent for fridge, as well as under sofa and dinette cubbies and kitchen lower cabinet. Nice bonus in spring is trailer smells like balsam. I think I have bought both on eBay and amazon. I also put hardware cloth over my fridge vents, tied with a cable tie. No meeskie problems so far.

I have used Fresh Cab in my trailer and my basement for the last 2 years and haven't had any mice in either place. Coincidence? Maybe but the stuff is cheap and smells nice so I will continue to use it until I see evidence of mice. I replace them every 6 months.
