Ceiling fan light covers fall off

I have a 2011 rockwood 8281ss with a ceiling fan and the light covers or globes keep falling off. Have not had one break yet. Does anyone else have this problem? How to remedy this problem? Thinking of looking for plastic ones or just not putting them back at all.

Hello mstell2
I have the same camper with a ceiling fan. This has not happend to me yet. One question about your fan though. Is it installed on an angle? Mine is installed in front of the middle vent on the angled section of roof. Its not parrllel to the floor. Therefore it is always out of balance when running. Is yours like this or is there a spacer to level it out? Thanks.

Mine is at an angle too but it is in balance. You might have to put a weight on the blades.

one trick is to loosen the screws on the blades and push them clockwise or counterclockwise and retighten (one blade at a time). if one is not quiet in alinement, it will cause the fan to wobble. it will be a slight movement. may want to try that before adding weights.
