The spray foam is mostly just used on underbelly to seal pipes and drains. It keeps mice and other critters from entry to trailer

Where it's just globbed on like that, don't be afraid to cut it down. You can either make it look better, or replace it yourself. After a few years, most of it breaks off or separates anyway.
I replaced most of mine with more expanding foam, then shaped it and covered it where I could with gorilla tape. Works much better at making a real seal.
