    We recently purchased a new to us 1993 Coleman/Fleetwood Seneca. We are redoing the complete interior, with plans to work on the exterior in the fall. We decided we weren't comfortable with the old propane furnace for heat (we will get an electric heater instead) and removed it for extra storage. We've decided how we will cover up the hold on the inside of the camper, but aren't sure as to go about covering the hole on the outside. We we hoping to discover some sort of plate that would fit perfectly. The opening is approximately 3"x5". Any suggestions?

    Given that the hole already goes completely through to the inside, I'd suggest a pass through hatch. That way you could have access to the storage from the outside. If you just want to cover it, anything flat will work. Just seal behind it so it doesn't leak.

    Some people go to Lowes or Home depot and get a louver to hide the dent / patch etc. and spray paint it the color of the unit.actually looks pretty good on some I have seen
    you will need to cover the hole with something like wide flashing or something
    similar before the louver is installed.
