They are called Robertson bits and more than likely you need a number 2 also known as a red robby. A lot more common here in Canada and a far better option than a Phillips.


Sorry forgot to mention that you will find one at just about any major hardware store

Menards, Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart--- should be able to find the set of 2 sizes which will fit all the square headed screws in your camper.

I didn't realize Robertson-head screws were used anywhere outside of Canada.

Learn something new everyday (I gotta get out more...).
Oddly enough, my Forest River uses Phillips screws.

I would wager that if you look closely, you'll find you can also use a #2 square bit also on your Forest River product.

A phillips bit in the lower 48 is an +. The ones used in our Forest River 5er is the + with a square in the center that actually removes a large portion of the cross.
