After sending pic to factory and dealer, no one could give reason for cause, the bottom five screws stripped out of the wall, this happened within three months of ownership. The repair was to install new screws inbetween stripped out ones, so far holding.......

Use rivets.

Th screws were the recommend installation method from Lippert. On the big slides, we prefer to add some big rivets. (lippert says we don't need it, your picture says better safe than sorry)

1/4" expandable rivet. Not sure what they are running them on, but again Lippert says they are unnecessary. So just an added precaution.
