Battery box hole?

I was vacuuming my car out today and noticed this hole by the batter box was completely open. Looks to me like there should be some sort of plug there? This is on a 2011 grand cherokee any info is much appreciated!

Re: Battery box hole?

Mine has hard plastic plug with black rubber tape. Its a drain hole supposed to be rubber grommet in the6 holes to drain floorpan but i have 6 plastic plugs that are permanently sealed. Gonna pop the plastics out and replace with grommets. I needed to drain the driver side because of few gallons of water from a leaking ac evaporator drain grommet.

Local parts supply places don't have assortments?

Some carry only the plastic variety which don't seem to work as well as the black rubber ones.
