Thanks for the info. I'll check to see if they have a website to order from.

Oh, we're on our own boys. Nobody is going to use stainless screws during construction.
I jsut took my tray for my LP tanks and sand blasted the rust off it and primed and painted it with Rust Bullet. 10 yr warranty against rust coming back.

Rusty threads can also mean that there is a leak getting to them. I run sealant over the top of every horizontal seam and half way down each side. Then run sealant over every screw head. Remove the strip in the channel covering all the screws and add sealant over them.

and on back panels where the trim covers teh screws - replace the screws with Stainless ones but make sure they are 2 to 2/5 inch ones. We watched a rear panel literally come off a trailer 2 summers ago driving in NH. the screws are too short in that area.
I pulled mine and did what Tiggerdad stated... cover all screw heads. screws rust from the inside out no the other way around

Unit only 7 months old and when up on a ladder, I just found all the screws on the exterior speaker mounts are rusted. I'll have to replace them all with stainless as you did. This is simply a part not properly spec'd.
