Another "Screw Loose?"

Hey everyone, hope you're having a great camping Summer. Question.... our 2011 Rockwood Sig Ultralite (we bought used earlier this year) seems to have a lot of "loose screws." Seems like every trip we lose a screw or two from somewhere. This past weekend, lost both screws that support the shower head. And of course, all the screws have a square head instead of phillips. When I tried to tighten the one screw for the shower head support, it wasn't very tight and eventually came back out. Does anyone else run into this? Is there a solution? As always, thanks for the help!

First off, right tool for the job. Get yourself a small set of 1/4 inch shank bits that includes square drives. Second, do not use an electric drill/driver to tighten the screw. Many of the screws only have purchase in the 1/8th inch plywood and are easily stripped. I have had luck on stripped out screw holes by shooting some construction adhesive in the hole and coating the screw threads with it. Again don't over tighten. Sometimes a toothpick or two glued in the hole works good too. Lastly, if you aren't fixing something on a TT regularly, you aren't camping enough!
