Exterior Screws Coming Loose

I have a 2015 Rockwood 2608ws. Suddenly last summer the screws holding the trim in place, particularly on the front of the camper, started coming loose and falling out. I re-tightened them several times. I tried using lock tite, adhesive, and caulk to help lock them in place. Every evening after a day on the road they are loose or missing again. The only difference is the addition of new tires at the beginning of the year. They were balanced prior to installation. Any ideas or suggestions prior to my looking to the dealer for help?

Many have had this issue. I went to Home Depot and purchased some # 8 and #10 flat Tinnerman clips and same size screws 3/4" long. Get ss if you can. Place flat side of clip against the object then tighten. Paint the screw heads appropriate color. Clips are located in the speciality drawers. PM if you need pics.
