My underbelly is a thicker material called Coroplast.

Here is a youtube video of a repair on a thinner material. Maybe will work in some cases.

I did not know that they used a thinner material, on my thicker material they placed a piece of the thicker material over the place that they opened and glued it to the existing material.. I then put foam under the ends to seal it better as the material flexed.

I don't know that they do. Just saw this and thought it might be informative.

Could be this is something used on a residential trailer.

I have had my underbelly opened 3 times now.. the first 2 times the tape failed on the drive home.. the 3rd time I left the RV on the dealers lot for 2 days.. and it has held up to over 5000 miles of driving this time.. Maybe they cleaned it better before putting the tape on or maybe letting the glue set for a few days did the trick or maybe both....

I have opened mine at the factory provided access many times. What I wanted to do it just put a strip of the black gorilla tape across the leading edge to prevent the "scoop" effect while under way.

If the patch is larger you could put some 2 sided tape between it to seal it. Once opened, I would want to keep it accessible but sealed in case I need to go back in there.

Gorilla tape is a great emergency repair but doesn't hold up well if you drive in rainy weather a lot.

Good to know, I just bought some and am testing it out on my under slide material.
