Drilled through the wall

Well my Wife decided to try to hang a little TV aim the master bedroom and put a screw through the wall to the outside wall of our brand new, never taken out, travel trailer. I want to throw up right now! Since I have a little hole all the way through, anybody have suggestions of an accessory we can add to cover it? Or I was thinking of adding more graphics after sealing it. I was thinking a security camera, or some sort of weather sensor. It's a brand new Rockwood 2706WS with its first boo boo! I really could throw up right now!

It's hard to see but it's right above the window by the awning. Click image for larger version

^^This^^ done that been there, I was trying to hang up a shower head inside my TT, so what I did is I took it to the CS and what they did was seal it up and put a decal that match what's on my TT.

I don't know what kind of seal they put on it but they did a great job, it look great now and they told me that it's no way that it will leak, well that's good to hear.

I feel like you did, my brand new TT I wish that I could turn back the time but it's is what it is. At least that the hole that I drill was only 1/8 hole.

For where it is (above eye level), I would just use clear silicon caulk and forget about it

We moved some cubby door holders on a previous rig. Probably 1/4 holes. Just used silicone and on one that was eye level I put a Good Sam sticker over it. No problems.

Good luck!

Buy a wall mount porch light to match the OEM one and after sealing the hole, stick the light over it with 3M molding tape. You'll be the only one who knows it doesn't work, unless you get creative and can get some wiring to it somehow, and If you ever trade it in it will drive the dealer bonkers trying to figure out why it wont work LOL.

I like that idea better except use about a dozen bullet hole decals so it looks like someone let loose with an AK LOL.

For a REAL feeling take your RV to Manitowish Waters,Wisconsin and stop at "Little Bohemia Lodge" this is where Gangster John Dillengers Gang had a Shoot out with the FEDs! Tommy Guns and Pistols on Both sides,the Owner retained ALL the Bullet Holes from the Shoot Out! Very interesting place to Dine and Excellent Food as well! Youroo!! PS You can tell people your RV was parked there during the Shoot Out!

Thanks for the suggestions and the great effort to make me laugh. Good to know that there are people with my kind of sense of humor. After sleeping on it, it's not the end of the world. I will get it sealed and get a decal that matches the others to cover it up. Still a little
upset, but not as bad as when my wife took the side of our motor home out at the gas pump! . I got over that too!

We did the same thing to our Sabre. We filled the hole with clear silicone, stuck a thick bolt through it with the head to the outside of the trailer. We then sealed it with clear silicone. It has held for almost 3 years now. Hard to notice if you didn't know it wasn't supposed to be there. I will have to see if I can find some pics.

What is that black object above the storage door -- a door bumper, right? Get one of those and stick it over a sealed and cured hole. Most people won't even wonder where is the door that should bump against it.

BTW, you are not the 1st on this site to ask about fixing such an issue. You should see the pics of the occasions where members drilled 3" screws through the wall!

Here is the thread from when DH made the mistake. It has before and after pictures and multiple suggestions for you.

What about that dealer who screwed that interior piece to the members RV that had a panel coming loose. They must have had 20 screws sticking out the front.

If it were me, I'd make/ find a button plug made out of something like a piece of black delrin rod and epoxy or clear proseal it in place, because I can. Got any buddies with access to a lathe?

http://www.widgetco.com/hole-plugs?g...Fc-1wAodMpAHbg

Try something on this order. I googled hole plugs. This will point you in the right direction

Easy fix.

1) Find a nice stainless bolt, stick it in the hole, put a nut on the other side, maybe even a cloths hook, and your good to go.

2) Get a couple self adhesive reflectors amber or red. Use one to cover the hole, then go around the other side and put one there so the match.

youroo in charge

I think youroo should be hired at FR and placed in charge of camper decorations. At least then our campers would start some interesting conversations.

Go to a boat dealer and get some Marine Tex and seal it. When it dries you can use a piece of real fine sandpaper and sand it smooth and,you will never be able to tell. I poked a hole in my boat below the water line and used Marine Tex to fix it. My boat is blue so I mixed a little blue paint into the mix and you cain't tell where the damage was.
