Furnace air vent tube.

The furnace has a aluminum paper vent tube to take the hot air from the furnace to the vent. I think that when the motorhome was winterized, the dealership turned the hot water valve into the aluminum and made a hole. Can I just use some aluminum tape from the hardware store to tape up hte hole? Or, should the entire tubing be replaced? I was not sure if this would be covered under the new vehicle warranty.

i patched mine with it. I've seen home hot water vent pipes wrapped with it and that gets a lot hotter than the foil tubing.
