well - it looked like the round head of a large spike hammered in at the factory ? When I first took the metal frame off , it was real evident what had been going on - but fixed now .

On further review, it looks like the head of a carriage bolt.

You are right Brian , I was thinking that it was a wood surface , but that was thin metal sheeting so it would be a carriage bolt to the frame . ( still hard to believe all the water we would have coming from under couch running toward refrigerator and I had put silicone on and under that screw ?

final post on this one

yes - that fixed the leak that caused water to run from under the couch to the refrigerator with every rain . Our bath towel laying on the floor to catch the very small stream is finally gone ! now getting ready for the next long trip , maybe to Canada and then down through all the north east states that we have never been to .

It's a nice change of pace when the fixes are simple like that. Gotta enjoy the little victories!
