2018 Grey Wolf 27RR Corner Molding

My Grey Wolf 27RR is having a problem where the rear corner molding and siding on both sides is pulling away from the rear frame it's screwed into. It's not just the silicone that's pulled away, I can see the mounting screws inside have snapped as well. I assume this is from the frame flexing during trips, but i'm concerned this is going to be a major issue if it's snapping the screws. I've only taken the trailer on about 6 trips.

I noticed the issue last year, but it was so minor I let it go, but as you can see from the pictures it's gotten worse, I circled the broken screw in the one picture it can be seen in. I'm out of warranty, so I don't know if i just fix this by putting more screws in and resealing, or if those screws will end up breaking also.

So if anyone else ever comes across this issue, I peeled away the vinyl insert to investigate. What I found really upset me, and made me very frustrated with forest river.

Under the vinyl I could see the pre drilled holes in the corner molding, about 1 every 10 inches or so, I estimate there were 10 - 12 holes from floor to roof... But there were only 4 screws used 4 crappy 1/8" screws... Basically 1 every 3 screw holes, I couldn't believe it, and 2 of them were broken. No wonder my corner molding was peeling off, they only used 1/3rd the amount of screws they should've used.

I bought some slightly heavier Tek screws and drove them in everywhere there was a pre drilled hole in the corner molding, hopefully this solves my issue. Will post pictures later.
