Floor holes?

I crawled under my pup and where hoses and lines go up in the inside there was good sized holes. What can I fill these with? I was thinking spray foam?

Try some copper mesh around the holes and fill with foam. Mice will have a hard time getting in.

Use a 35 year silicone $6 at a hardware store,mice wont get through it and it will be a good seal.

I used silcone to fill any holes underneath that I found. Also, double check around all areas of the camper where any type of silicone is used. I found two air pockets that needed filled around my storage bin that would have leaked water while traveling in the rain. Just things that happen during the quickness of the manufacturing process.

In TN, neighbor owned an exterminating company; his suggestion would be expandable foam and steel wool. Seems mice don't like chewing on metal (they destroy copper...my experience using copper mesh), but steel wool rusts. So what he would do to close up holes in houses, was to foam one side, go to the other side, fill it with steel wool, then seal up that side with the foam. Or shove the steel wool into the home and then foam on both sides.

I did that and the mice didn't come through the hole again. They had actually chewed through some of the foam, but stopped. Then they went and found another hole to come in through. Learned that living in the country, with fields all around, it was next to impossible to keep the little buggers out, but a few weeks after the cold spell and after they moved in, good traps took care of the problem, till the next fall.

As f5moab said, they won't chew on it. I use it at all holes as well as on my slide out where there are always holes when they are closed. It will fall out many times when I open the slide so I keep several packs onboard for replacement when necessary. It will rust as stated but I just replace it.
