The answer depends upon where the damages is found and how serious the damage happens to be. I don't know whether there are repair kits at the big box home centers, but I do know that most bathtub refinishers also offer repair services. When I had the bathroom in my Overlander refinished, the professional refinisher repaired ever blemish in the surface before refinishing. A small crack (approximately 1.5 inches was repaired) as were several chips, we also talked about the possibility of repairing holes as my Minuet has a 1-inch round hole in its sink -- he said that would be repairable as well when I have its bathroom refinished. Since I didn't perform my own repairs I can't give you specific details, but I do know that it can be done.

Good luck with your coach!
