WordPress Change Class Function Select Field

I have a plugin that turns products into rentals in Woo.
The Product Data has the ability to show if a product is Rentable or not and the Default is No:

class WCRP_Rental_Products_Product_Fields {
public function product_data_panel() {

         global $post;


         <div id="wcrp-rental-products-panel" class="panel woocommerce_options_panel">


            echo '<div class="wcrp-rental-products-panel-heading"><span class="dashicons dashicons-calendar-alt"></span>' . esc_html__( 'Rental', 'wcrp-rental-products' ) . '</div>';
            echo '<div class="notice notice-info inline"><span class="dashicons dashicons-info"></span>' . esc_html__( 'Set whether this product is a rental.', 'wcrp-rental-products' ) . '</div>';
                  'id'           => '_wcrp_rental_products_rental',
                  'value'         => get_post_meta( $post->ID, '_wcrp_rental_products_rental', true ),
                  'label'         => esc_html__( 'Rental product', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
                  'desc_tip'      => true,
                  'description'   => esc_html__( 'Enables rentals of this product. Default is no.', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
                  'options'      => array(
                     ''            => __( 'No', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
                     'yes'         => __( 'Yes - Rental only', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
                     'yes_purchase'   => __( 'Yes - Rental or purchase', 'wcrp-rental-products' )
                  'selected'      => true,


I would like to extend this Class and filter the function so as that the Rental option is set to  Yes-Rental or Purchase:
    'options'      => array(
                     ''            => __( 'No', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
                     'yes'         => __( 'Yes - Rental only', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),  //// MAKE THIS SELECTED, Not NO
                     'yes_purchase'   => __( 'Yes - Rental or purchase', 'wcrp-rental-products' )
                  'selected'      => true,

Just a good guess, viewing the source when the page is rendered, you see
   <option value="">No</option>
   <option value="yes">Yes - Rental only</option>
    <option value="yes_purchase ">Yes - Rental or purchase </option>

What happens is the first item is the default. The easy option then may be to change the order of the array.

'options' => array(
    'yes' => __( 'Yes - Rental only', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),  //// MAKE THIS SELECTED, Not NO
   'yes_purchase'   => __( 'Yes - Rental or purchase', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
   ''            => __( 'No', 'wcrp-rental-products' ),
'selected'      => true,

@scottt, OK, but how do I extend that class from the plugin and then filter the function?

Your only option that I know of is to duplicate the plug in and change the name of it, then manually update the classes to what you want.

Being that is a paid extension, check out what your rights to the code are before making any modifications.
