Floor penetrations - electrical, waste, Espar lines

Looking for some guidance on what the DIY's use to seal the floor penetrations for electrical lines, water lines, waste and Espar supply/return lines so water, dust, etc does not enter the interior of the van. Any thoughts or actual items that have been used would be appreciated. Thanks

Using Heyco strain relief bushings for my electrical. I would imagine that any kind of bushing that protects from the metal edges of the holes would work for any hose or cable. Use a sealant like silicone to make it air and water tight if it doesn't clamp down.

I use bulkhead fittings when possible. gives you the ability to detach the wires or hoses if needed.

Aside from electrical connections which you should use some sort of rubber bushings. Flex seal tape works great for keeping water dirt dust out of any floor or body penetration.
