2016 FR3-30DS - storage area screw-in plugs?

I'll be the first to admit I have no earthly idea what those things are really called. In the storage compartments there are large (about 4") round screw in 'plugs'. The one I am focused on is the one where the coach power cord is supposed to come out. Granted that is a somewhat large cable, but the hole is comparatively huge. And it is very inviting for rodents.... So, does anyone know of a replacement screw in plug, that has notches in it for the power cords? Thanks, Mike

Like these maybe?

I also remember seeing an insert you could get to go around your electrical cord that would block the hole when you were using it.....can't remember where though.....

I'll poke around and see if I saved a link.

I also remember reading someone saying they had used steel wool (or something equivalent) around the hatch when they had their cord out. Haven't tried it.

Here's another idea - I've never used it but when I did a search on google it came up highly recommended. You'd have to find the right size -

Also - aluminum foil balled up around the cord entrance as a short term fix (new one for me too....)

I used plastic tops from coffee tins. Drill a hole in the center and make one slit from the hole to edge. The slit lets you snap it over the hose or power cord.

I just stuff large pieces of sponge in to fill the hole when the power cord or water hoses leave a compartment.

Car wash sponge, or mattress foam sponge etc.

Fills the gap regardless of what exits the service hole.

I just took a 3" thick piece of foam and made a plug for the hole in the floor when the cord is passed throw. This keeps any critters from getting in.
