Rear bedroom slide out

So we got to our camp site in NY and discovered the bed slide out was broken.

There is a metal bar attached at the foot of the bed with 6 #7X3in wood screws. The metal bar extends across the width of the bed and has a roller at each end. The rollers ride inside rails and allow the bed to slide out the back of the trailer.
When we arrived at our campsite we discovered that the wood screws holding the metal bar to the bed had sheared off, and the bed was dangling unsupported at that end.

I didn’t think to get pictures of it at the time it was broken and dangling. I put new #7X3” wood screws back in the same holes as a temporary fix. Then I took pictures of the setup. (Attached).

I am looking for suggestions on how to fix it so that the same thing doesn’t happen again. The original design is very flimsy.
Also concerned that there might be some hidden damage to the slide out or where the slide attaches at the outside wall of the trailer.

Does anyone have one of these type slide outs who has had a similar problem?

Thanks.

My 2019 30WTBSV V-Lite is doing something similar. The rear slide has the queen bed on it. I noticed it started making noise as the slide would go out. Found the bed had completely become detached from the wall and the floor. They totally missed the aluminum bar in the wall with the 3 screws in the back, several floor ones were bent and 2 were broken. There were 3 quarter sized holes in the wall from the screws. I took it all down and ran 3 self tapping screws back into the metal support (where they were supposed to be) and then with the slide extended, used self tapping treated deck screws from the bottom onto the bed's aluminum frame. Then I fixed the screw that was backing out of the slide's plastic guide that had already taken about 1/8" of the wood out in the form of a groove. Painted the screw heads and exposed wood. Thinking all was good, I got the plastic strips that run along the edge back under the trim pieces. Nope it's still not completely fixed and I'm not sure what will fix it. Following this post to see your outcome.Click image for larger version
