Filling Plumbing Cutouts

We have a Jay Flight 23RB. Does anyone know of a way to neatly fill the big cutouts around the sink drainpipe that goes from under the bathroom sink to the outside frig compartment and also the big cutout around the vent pipe going up from the compartment and through bathroom closet? Keep in mind we are somewhat challenged in the carpentry department!

Aerosol foam "Great Stuff" available at Wally World, Home Despot, Lowest, etc.


Pipe insulating foam wrap too.

There is also a"Great Stuff " foam that is labeled as pest blocking. I picked mind up at our local Ace. I'll let you know if it works in the Spring.

they make a chrome (or other color) rings that are split with a pivot to fit around pipes. Fill with foam and then place this ring for a more finished look.

+1......there is also a low expanding type for use around doors and windows that might make a bit neater job of it by not shooting out as much.

Thanks. I have seen the split rings but not the hinged kind. Those and the low expanding foam I think will do the trick! When we were looking at the competition's trailers, they had the holes filled with expanding foam (but at least they were filled!) which wasn't a very pretty sight but I guess it does work!


Thanks again.

Use more foam than you need. Then you can trim it down a bit so it's not so...um..LUMPY!

Once you have used the low expanding foam and it has set up use an exacto knife to remove the excess..
