Be very careful cutting the plastic belly, there are lines, wires, hoses etc laying on top of it.

How do you know where the valve is without taking the belly off?

A really great tool you can get at HF is a camera that you can snake into tight areas to see what is there. Self lit and very handy at home/RV. Small opening in underbelly and look for valve. Not enough time to list all the uses!

I wanted to put on the new Oxygenics shower head, sterilize the FW and get it ready for camping next weekend. But we woke up to 5 inches of snow and its going to be 19 degrees tonight. At least they are still calling for upper 60's- low 70's next weekend. Will be busy at the end of the week getting the camper ready.

So, I learned today - the wind was crazy hard when we got here. You could watch the door flop around without the 2nd strut AND it eventually closed itself.

I'll be grabbing the octogon cover, some white paint, and installing it soon.

The suggestions mentioned previously are by far your most inexpensive method of repair. There is also a company making an adhesive backed repair plate.
Hatchlift.
There are some good photos throughout their web site to help guide however you choose to repair.

That is interesting as I talked to my dad about different repairs over the years. One of his "in a pinch" go-tos is to use caulk as a glue. He says that they would use it for crazy random things with printing presses and never had issues with it.
