Holes in bottom of Airflyte

So, like many others I have found many exposed holes, wood, you name it under our new camper. We are extremely disappointed with our new camper. We found this one hole, under near the battery compartment, it looks like a hole that was cut by mistake, then covered with the bottom of I'm guessing the battery tray? Should I just goop black expanding foam over this?

Any thoughts?

Our Puma has a hole also under the battery tray. I would say it is supposed to be there do not cover it. Maybe someone has more info.

I have a vent with a hose from the battery box cover to a vent bracket mounted to the side of the 5er. I also have a similar hole like noted above under the battery box extending to a hole in the floor and is there to drain any battery water spillage. Don't cover it up.

Hey Redbetty heres where i moved it to i sent you a pm dont know if you got it im still figuiring out the whole smart phone thing so back to the desktop like i said you have to put a new hole in the floor for the bottom vent make sure where you put it is not where the frame is use a 2" hole saw re use that peice of floor you took out with hole saw to glue back into the old hole in the floor i cut off the old vent in the bottom of box and made a new one in the corner of the batt box that is going to be facing the bathroom and glued in a new 2" vent flange so it cleared the back of the cross support main frame which is right there as well as the main frame i also drilled a new hole and relocated the white ground wire to frame so batt box dont sit on it hope all this helps .Oh BTW all the saw dust was from the original hole they put in floor and never cleaned up mess err
