Rabbit under trailer

I have a new friend who has seemed to make a small home under my TT. 2021 Wolfpup 16BHS-BL, winterized, covered, and parked on parking pad next to my house. Only seems to be there when it's really cold or other inclement weather (we [the rabbit and I] live in MN). Doesn't seem to be doing any damage outside of a small indent in the parking pad class-5, which a rake this spring will fix. Any damage to the TT I should be worried about? I have to imagine this happens all the time in larger open winter storage lots.

i dont see a rabbit doing any damage. Chipmunks and ground squirrels are another story. They have done tons of damage to my unit. My dog like the taste of baby rabbits and i cant get the mamma to move her nest outside my fence

My daughter once had a pet bunny. Stupid thing would chew on any electrical wires he could find if she let him loose in the house. And it didn't take long, either.

Don't know if a cottontail would, but I wouldn't take any chances. They taste too good to take that kind of risk.

Wild rabbits WILL chew on anything they think may taste good.
You need to get rid of it.

You'd think a rabbit's chewing on a live electrical wires would be a problem that corrects itself at the rabbit's expense.

I opened this post thinking it was a recipe, like "pheasant under glass".

I know, right. I had to fix a laptop cord, a lamp cord and some speaker wire. I was shocked the 110v in the lamp didn't teach him a lesson (pun not intended).

Rabbits seem to stick to plant life. Ground hogs on the other hand are my nemesis and dispatched on sight with the aplomb of Bill Murray in Caddyshack.

Watch him carefully. Someone on this forum had a problem with wild turkey eating the roof of his trailer.

I watched Monty Python. I know how dastardly those rabbits can get.

It's all good if you have a holy hand grenade. But yes, they are underestimated.

Keep him there and feed him plenty of cracked corn. Thanksgiving will be here in 10 months and you can then invite him to dinner.

Have you had to resort to using explosive ordnance yet?
