3010DS Closet Issue

A few months ago, the rack to hang clothes on fell on my side of our closet. I figured it was because I had way too many clothes hanging on it and got a small plastic dresser thing to put my clothes in.

Today, DH (who has way fewer clothes) opened his closet and the rack had come loose from the top. We went to the store and bought longer screws. The ones there were one inch screws and we got two inch ones. But, it appears there is no wood there for them to screw into.

Any ideas on how to fix this? It looks like the screws were just put into the drywall. That won't hold any kind of weight. Is there any wood in the ceiling above the closet?

This is a 2011 Sunseeker 3010 DS.

Any ideas on how we can repair it? the far left screw appears to be in wood. It is still holding on. None of the other three appear to be going into wood. Should the screws be longer than two inches?

longer? no. a 1" screw would be fine if it hit backer. 2" is likely deeper than the backer is. I'll go see what the backer looks like.

or use a hollow core door anchor.

I'd be careful as a 2" might penetrate the roof, and you will have a whole other set of issues.

My closet hanger in my 2250 fell down, only two screws in it. I put in a traditional pole with three screws in each side socket. The cabinets are double wall so the screws don't protrude. The walls are thin but I believe this will work.

Hey, not your bad, the original hanger was in the ceiling. I just figured I had a better chance of getting the new one to hold if it was placed in the walls. Besides, I could then use a regular rod instead of the stamped metal piece which has lots of slots. Yes, the original keeps things from sliding but is a pain to put the hangers on it. I'm just picky.
