I had a blowout heading from central GA to Panama City Beach, FL. The blowout happened in AL on the way through. The blowout broke my fender skirt and also tore into the Darco fabric and snatched some insulation out as well. I patched it with gorilla tape to get me home. I put in some new insulation and also ordered and installed a “underbelly repair kit” that I found on Amazon (***Link Removed***)
I’m wondering if this fix will suffice to future wear/tear and weather? What should I do next? Run with it or? I’m unable to attach my pictures on here.
I, too, shredded a tire which tore up the inside of the "wheel well". I replaced the material with Coroplast, the black corrugated plastic board that lasted for years without deterioration. It handled road spray and rocks from the tire flawlessly. I screwed it into the bottom of the flooring and sealed the edges to make it waterproof.

This is after I put in the insulation in and before I put on the patch kit I ordered on Amazon
This is the patch and flex mend tape kit on put on. I sealed it to the frame, because there was only a sliver of Darco fabric left closest to the frame. I’m worried water may seep into the small crevices where it doesn’t get a great seal at the end of the tape on the frame.
