Ditto .....bought 5 inch deck plate at a RV supply place...wonder why they have those
. Took out old plate, made template out of cardboard for new plates outline, traced, took roto -zip about 10 seconds to enlarge hole, put in new plate with 7400 rtv on seal area on plate, drilled in self tapping screws back into plate , covered screw thread that protruded in rtv, viola!!!
Rhino hose we bought or just about anything will fit now!!
