Under Carriage Fabric Patch

A mouse has chewed a hole through the under carriage waterproofing fabric of my Coachman Clipper. Now that I'm rid of the rodent, any suggestions on how (material and glue) to patch the fabric? Do they sell specific patch kits?

I used goilla brand duct tape to patch a few holes and seal a few voids. Holds up very well.

They make tape for the material. I got some from my dealer after a blow out. He gave me about 10ft of it.

Gorilla Tape here you need to clean area. I used alcohol and it stuck really well still there after several years. And it is cheaper than the scrim tape they sell for it.

Underside repair

Just search Amazon for Polyethylene Underbelly Repair Tape. That stuff works great and looks like a factory repair.

I have used (Great Stuff Gaps & Cracks) available at most places like menards.

Simply inject it and it will foam out below. Use a putty knife to spread the portion that comes to the undercarriage. I have filled the gaps around gas/water lines that Forest River missed same concept. It has not failed in 8 months and 20K miles.

Thanks for all the input. I went with Flexmend tape which seems to have stuck well, time will tell.
