Hole in the door

We have been doing some decorating and fixing up the INSIDE of our TT, and not paid alot of attention to details on the outside until yesterday. I found that the "hold your door open stick-thingy" has poked a hole clear thru the outside of our door down inside the bracket that it hooks onto. How serious is this issue? As in...we are going out for the 3 day weekend, and dont really have time to fix it. As dirty as it looks down in there, this has been like this for quite a while (before we bought it). How would you fix such a thing? We have probably a nickel-sized hole.

A hole in the door could allow water into the interior of the door panel, resulting in future issues. You could remove the door holder socket and fasten a metal plate covering the hole and allowing mounting of the socket in the proper location.

Yeah, you could use the gorilla tape until you were able to get some duct tape for a "permanent" repair.

If the hole isn't visible and cosmetics aren't important, I would think a better fix and likely permanent would be a high quality silicone seal placed in the center of the hole and fill it/smooth it and it won't puncture again as duct tape might.
'Course, I don't think duct tape would pass the cosmetic test either...
