Small Hole in Aluminum Siding

my son managed to hit the front of the camper with an arrow. He's only 8 and fortunately the arrow didnt penetrate more than just the tip. However I'm left with a very small hole in the aluminum siding on the front of the camper.

What are the possible fixes for this? replace siding piece here? Eternabond tape and sealant? Just fill it with Geocel ProFlex? anyone have pics of what youve done to similar issues?

Here's a pic of the hole

I would just plug the hole with Geocell and not worry about it. Just need to keep the water from getting behind the siding.

Looks like two holes, nice grouping for an 8 year old. As the others indicated, just fill it with some geocel and carry on.

I had a small hole like that, squeezed in some white geocel and left it to set up. Then took a one sided, new, razor blade and shaved off the excess a couple days later. Big enough blob on the inside to adhere and no painting needed.

You could put a piece of blue tape over the hole, make a hole in that and force in the geocel. Let set up, razor it and pull the tape but my hole was BB size so just put the nozzle up there and squeezed it in.

Not trying to be a smart a** but if my boy did that I’d draw a bullseye around it and smile every time I looked at it.

Put sealer in hole then get decal or bumper sticker with a picture on it and cover up hole… Be glad he was not using a gun…

They sell decorative non-slip "star" stickers that are used in bathtubs. I have used them to cover holes in boats.

As an aside, A few years ago I bought some decorative stickers for another project, not related to our RV. Along with my order they sent a package of simulated bullet hole stickers.

I thought they looked neat. Since our RV is permanently set up along side a rifle range, I put these stickers in a machine gun pattern on our side utility door.

Everyone laughs when they see them...

I put a Good Sams Sticker over one I had. Worked great and was still holding years later when I traded it in. Just saying.
