3/4

1/2" x #10 round head sheet metal screws for the angle. Reused the screws for the plywood.

I'm glad someone flew into this before I did - as my rear slide-out is VERY LOOSE, and the vinyl that is stretched over the cardboard (to make it look like real wood) is coming off the top piece.

It's nice to know what I'm going to find and be prepared to fix it correctly BEFORE I take it all apart.

I think I will find some real wood trim with a similar design, and stain/varnish it rather than put the 'kinda crappy' trim back up. I don't have a problem with most of the trim in the RV, but the trim around the slideouts leaves a bit to be desired.

Thanks again!

nusslejj took words right out of my mouth. I've told my wife it's going to be plywood ugly for awhile until I find a thin decorative real wood for new frames. It will be a lot less weight than junks that I stored in garbage bin a week ago. May be stretching a little about weight but real wood.
