No, I haven't had that problem but I'm sure going to check all the screws on the bunk ends now.

looks like -- I guess

looks like a broken screw I guess
yes
someone around here had one break
on their window frame
probably over tightened at the factory
or
cheaper that should have been screw
I have noticed over the years
many of these screws work themselfs out
I put a small dab of JB weld on the screw threads
then just screw them in until snug
they then stay put
and if not too much epoxy is used
screw will break free easily later if needed

Forest River sent rivets ended up drilling all screws. 2 did not break so it is done

I would put a dab of caulk in the holes in the rivets. The heads of the rivets do not form a watertight seal. Wipe a little around the rivet head also just to insure moisture doesn't come in around the head.
