How long can rats stay out of the cage with no water. I give them their food bowl and litter box but can't give them water ( I tried they dumped it over). I don't want them to get dehydrated. They just run around my bed.

You can always put out some cucumber or melon if your worried as a water source. i generally have a water bottle set up in there carrier which is open for them in free range

I find they have a hard time tipping over a coffee mug full of water. Or I just give them wet fruits like apples or grapes.

What I do when I have one of my rats in an area for out-time that doesn't provide access back to the cage, I just grab one of their normal water bottles and hold it up for them and see if they want a drink every 15 minutes or so.
They will drink from the bottle just the same if you are holding it or if it is hanging in the cage. :p
Just put the bottle sitting upright or so the nozzle isn't facing down and it won't leak or anything.
