Power cord door gasket

I want to add this to my HR MH. Feeding the power cord through the bottom door is a pain! Picture is from a friends cornerstone but I don't know what the gasket is called so I can search for one to purchase. Anybody made this conversion? Recommend reinforcing the basement floor? Thanks

Since I'm the first to respond
Pic does not identify what we are looking at.
Ya it a pain going thru the floor but what can you do?
Don't want pests in with bigger hole, don't want to leave cabinet door open entire time hooked up to shore power.
Only solution might be a closable floor door with rollers on 4 sides to reduce friction pulling cable in and out.

Our Fleetwood Discovery has a small cutout lined with foam rubber at the bottom of the lift up door seal. The cord is easily pulled out, the cord is placed into the cutout and the door closed. This way the cord hole is completely sealed.

Same for the water hose.

The picture appears to show a "homemade" version of your Discovery's cutout. What someone did was cut a gap in the door seal gasket, and then (by some method) stick on two pieces of door seal gasket at a right angle to the door seal.

It's not homemade I have seen this method of running the power cord through the bay door before on other class A's and I don't think just one manufacturer. Unfortunately I didn't really pay attention to the makes but hopefully someone with one will respond and you could order the gasket through them. Sorry I couldn't help.

Newmar uses an approach like this. My previous Winnebago had door with selectable hole sizes and latches...I liked that but consider the Newmar better. Ventana 4037, 2017.

Don't know why my pic came out sideways but I'll try a better one. It's a soft rubber gasket with a split in the middle. I have a power reel and it's a pain to currently feed the hose through the floor back on the reel that's why I want to add this upgrade. These pictures are from a 2017 Entegra cornerstone.

The soft rubber gasket is really two pieces of compartment door gasket. I just double-checked and Newmar welds some metal at right angles to the cutout, they screw the ends of the gasket pieces into the metal. I had mine repaired during the warranty period when it started falling apart. It has stayed together since.

Ok I think I got this, since there is no gasket specifically designed for this I found this gasket on eBay. The profile appears to be right.
