I am about to cry. I just drilled one hole through the side of our brand new 2021 Grand Design fifth wheel while trying to install a tv wall mount. What is the easiest and best way to repair the hole? Is the trailer a total loss. Please go easy on me.

Did you drill through something solid or is there a void behind the fiberglass?

Y'know, you could have made up a great story about getting shot at while driving through Colorado City. [emoticon]

A number of years ago I wore a groove on my front cap because I mounted a level too close. I bought a Tub & Shower repair kit from the local home store. It is for repairing gouges and scratches in fiberglass bath tubs and showers. It worked great and to this day you cannot find where I made the repair.

Well trouble averted for now. Ran a silicon product by Grand Design and they reassured me it’d work for now. Thank you again to everyone who helped.
