Maybe a little gorilla glue on the screw threads before screwing them back in would help.

I snapped off some toothpicks into the holes. If it happens again, I'm definitely shooting some adhesive onto the screws.

No kidding. We did have a bunch of kids in the camper- but none of them seemed like the "prank" kind, and they were all pretty little, and no one carried a damned square-head screw driver.

Freaking weird- all the screws in the other two bases are in tact and not loose.

A week ago, when I was on the RV roof replacing the A/C cover (we just got back from camping), I inspected all of the seals around everything and noticed the seals were cracked around the little, silver, am/fm radio antenna. Upon further inspection, I discovered it was also very lose which probably caused the seal to break. I noticed it has a Philips head screw holding the antenna so I removed that to find a Philips head screw going down into the camper so I tried to tighten it but it but all it did was spin around.

Yesterday, I got a tube of sealant from my dealer (called Alpha something) and used a putty knife to take off just a little around the antenna and was able to remove it and clean it up...I didn't see any way for water to get down in there but when I replaced it, and gently lifted up on it as I tightened the screw (my dealer advices doing that), was able to get it nice and snug. Then I sealed it all back up with the new stuff. (The tube was $13, not cheap, so I put a big screw inside of the spout, hopefully I can reuse it in the future if necessary.)

I, also, finally got my TPMS system fixed up right. (I had problems configuring it and haven't had time to get it fixed.)

Ready to go back out camping and y'all had BETTER not starting the winterizing questions this early!!!

Nothing to the RV, but did this the last three days

Three backbreaking days of filling and repairing cracks, spawling and pitting then resurfacing in two coats.

Fixed some more FR product issues on our 9-mo. old FW. Cleaned numerous glue spots off one slide ceiling, cleaned up messy putty from countless nail holes, removed chintzy d-ring tieddowns from one slide, used the correct color furniture repair stick to cover up the factory' wrong color, cleaned the inside of ceiling light lenses discolored from some sort of bleed through from ceilings. Planned tomorrow's work to include finding out why the floor is out of level everywhere I test with a 4' level.

I ordered some x chocks from rvupgrades. Put them on TT.
They really make a big difference on TT not moving.

I used acetone to remove glue from the front cap and some of the fiberglass. Not sure if I would use that on any of the inside. What ever I would use on the inside I would try it first on a spot that would not be seen like behind furniture near the floor someplace.
