I like Fastenal, they have almost any fastener you could want but I had to find a new supplier when the local store went to bulk buy only. No open boxes. OK if you need 100 of something. I have good luck at Lowes or HD.
Good luck

rvhat pretty much summed up how I did it.
They are a PITA, no question about it.

Our local Fastenal has a HUGE in store selection but not every store is the same. It's good they do though cause we don't have have a hardware store and Lowe's is worthless.

Late reply...

On my way to Florida last spring, the front half of my underbelly tore loose. When I pulled into a campground it was folded in half around the axle and dragging on the ground along with all the flex heat ducting to the front half of my trailer. Also saw lots of drooping wires!

I didn't have anything to do a full re-install so I decided to just finish pulling it off. After trying a few things, what worked for me was to use a pair of angle cutters to bend the sides of the washers down a bit and then used the pry side of a hammer to yank them out. Once I got the pattern, I was able to finish the removal and tape all the duct work and wiring up in about 45 minutes.

late thanks to everyone who responded. The project requiring plasticore removal got delayed. Almost ready to proceed if it would stop raining.
