Hmm a insert just dont want to risk leaks
as it's leaking ATM from there one thing I saw googling is to lay Sarah wrap on a simmiliar area of the camper let dry then use that to fiberglass up the hole .. I plan to paint
just not yet lol it can stay unpainted for a few?
Thank you!! after work going to go smack it some more lol
Gotta Say, If this is your first attempt at fiberglass repair, a large hole isn't the best place to start, especially if a total repaint is somewhere in the future. I'd wait until repaint time, then try your hand with a few smaller areas and venture forward if that works out for you.
You can remove the outside vent cover and back that up with some thin aluminum and strips of RV putty tape and there will be no leaks

IMHO": "Experienced" fiberglass peeps telling newbies how easy repairing and repainting a fiberglass repair job is, is sort of a disservice. Yes, it's easy for them, because at least in one case they have been doing it for 30+ years and possess the skill sets needed. But for newbies, who will be to embarrassed to mention failures, it's a bridge to far unless they are
aware of the possibility of a not-so-invisible repair. I have seen the results of some of these efforts after such encouragements and many are not a pretty sight
Me, have been doing my own fiberglass repair since doing body repairs on my 1954 Corvette (almost 50 years ago), many, many dune buggies and a stable of molded fiberglass RV.s since then, and I will never tell anyone that it's a slam dunk on the first job. There is a real learning curve, and this is why
I cover and don't repair small areas on FGRV's.
I prefer knowing exactly what it will look like when I am finished 15 minutes later.
