Is anybody else having issues with the seat belt shoulder harness pulling the screws out of the window valance? Does anybody have a resolution to this. Really bad design!

Well a few weeks ago I noticed that a couple of screws had fallen out and I replaced them. Perhaps now I know why.

The shoulder harness keeps pulling the screws out. She has the seat pulled all the way forward as well.

Either try a larger diameter screw or drill a hole through the valance and put a bolt & nut with a couple of washers.

CC, the valance is made of cardboard, sooner or later the screws are going to pull through there as well.

Funny when I was buying our coach I thought the kitchen back splash was real tile. Wasn't till a couple weeks after I got her home that I noticed it was just a fancy high polished particle board. lol

I think I would cut out that forward section of valance support hole where the seat belt passes through (maybe a little larger). If it's cardboard apply some epoxy glue over exposed edge to keep cardboard from coming apart. If it's due to the valance (fabric portion) itself then good luck.

The seat belt doesn't pass through a hole so, I have no clue what you are suggesting.

You're right sorry. The seatbelt support coming off the wall. I believe it swivels with seatbelt usage and may cause the issue. If not, you'll figure something out.

Mine I think are thin luan plywood. I would use small tee-nuts.
