Bezel for hole in vinyl siding

I am installing a split-mini AC/Heat pump for my garage shop. I have to put a 2-1/2" hole through the wall that has siding on the outside. Is there a bezel or strip I can use to help hide the hole in the vinyl siding? Or just fill up the gap with calking?

Most times I see AC lines drilled right through the siding. You "could" install a 6" mastermount and drill the hole in the cover. Either way, it's still a hole. Drill the hole the same size as your pipe wrap is.

I always see the hole cut fairly close to the right size and then caulking around the tubing insulation.

If you want to dress it up you can use many siding tricks. Run the hole through a sheet of trim stock that is trimmed out with J channel. You can also use any escutcheon or base intended for light fixtures, outlets or spigots.

Here is how I did mine for a dual zone unit if it helps prompt some ideas for you. Mounting block with schedule 40 pvc sleeve (may need painted at some point depending on uv degradation).
