Many of the screws in RVs are mad so you can use a Phillips or #2 Square Head !!!
Square Heads always work better !!! I always try to use a Magnetized driver,,,
My fingers have gotten to old & stupid to hold small things !!!
LOL !!!

As Wolverine said I have encountered screws that at first appear to be Robertson head but then noticed that the corners of the hole extend out a bit farther. The will accept a #2 Phillips bit. The square bit works better though.

what you have there is a Canadian screw.

Not easily stripped due to configuration.

ok I stop there...

A few years back I purchased a large box of screws at Calise Maine for my deck.....Had to order a SQ driver from USA as Cdn Robertson would strip the American screws using an electric drill!!!!! J

honestly, just to get a Dewalt mini screw kit. It will include several bits including square drive. Too expensive just buying 1 bit at a time.
