Default Fill holes from 5th wheel in truck bed

Hello. I traded my 2010 F150 for a 2011 Eco, a few months ago. The prior owner had a fifth wheel hitch in the bed, and of course removed it to install in his new truck. I now have some holes in the bed from where the hitch was mounted. Is there any way to easily plug those holes to prevent water, etc from underneath coming up, such as when it's raining, snowing, etc. Any suggestions? Thx.

Get some rubber plugs and hammer them in there.

Just buy a fifth wheel hitch and install it. That way when you buy a fifth wheel you are ready to go! Haha.
