Holes

Wondering what is best for plugging up these holes, under counter by the water pump...just expanding foam or ??

Should ask, is this normal on a new trailer or should I say something to the dealer?

The bottom hole looks like someone got in a hurry and punched out using the wrong tool. Expanding foam will work but if you are in an area prone to mice and they chew thru the foam, use mortar caulking or copper mesh. I wouldn't bother with the dealer...looks like sloppy construction mess in an area most people will never see.

If you had a piece of wall paper that matched it, you could simply cover it up a bit better.

It's normal......
They drill a 1" hole to run 1 very small wire thru it.
If it is something around 1", they drill a 3" hole.
All manufactures do the same thing.

Just put some expanding foam in them.

That last picture would be my profile picture on ever forum I post on. I have seen this type of work on all 5 of my campers but that one would require an explanation even if they did not intend to fix it.

I had a water softener put in my house and the installer used a ball peen hammer to make the holes through the foundation wall. They were not holes they were shaped more like the results of an explosion. Perhaps they used to work for Jayco.
