tiny hole in fiberglass side

My wife was putting up a small shelf inside the class c motorhome. the screws were just a little to long and the tip of the screw just barely came through the outside. How would I go about repairing these 2 very tiny holes in the outside of the fiberglass? thanks for any advised and help

I would use a dab of clear silicone. I am sure others will have different suggestions but that is what I would do

Thanks for the comment. Driving the cobra makes us fell young and always brings a smile to my face.

I was thinking about people who do China repairs with colored epoxy and ran into epoxy clay:

Crystal Clay Epoxy Clay Assorted Colors 100g

I would use color matched epoxy if I could get it. A good job will get you a surface equal to the MH. Next best bet is a small epoxy and filler repair kit then touchup paint. Real two part epoxy and not body filler for first choice. Polyester resin based body filler for second choice. EIther can be painted to match. Silicone gel will plug the leak but will not take paint so your sins will always be visible. ;-)

For future reference....screws are dangerous to use in a MH. The manufactures run wiring and plumbing where ever they want. If one of those are hit with a screw, it will be an expensive repair. The 3M stick on hangers are much safer in an RV. Sorry about your holes, I would also use a product like 5200 or fiberglass repair, it will be permanent and not peel off.

Command strips are our preferred attachment devices. They work like a darn and when you need to move or delete them are easy to remove.
