Mounting slow rise blinds

I have a problem with the slow rise blinds in my 2013 CC 36RE. After running over rough roads (and how can you avoid rough roads these days), the blinds have fallen, broken the brackets or pulled the brackets loose from the wall.

I am going to re-mount the shades, using more brackets. My issue is how to attach the brackets to the wall. Regular screws tend to loosen up. Has anyone used molly bolts on the inside side walls of their Cedar Creek? I would think that molly bolts would certainly hold the brackets better than screws. Having been on several CC plant tours, it seems like there should be a void between the inner and outer wall. Anyone have any experience with this?

Otherwise, how do you mount the slow rise blind brackets so they don't come loose?

Thanks in advance,

I just use regular screws. My shades fell so much that I ended up putting one more bracket up, if there was two brackets I put in three. Now days when I travel I run the shades up, it seems to help. None has fell since I started running the shades up when I travel
