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
