Wall anchors for window valances

I've re-screwed most of the window valances in our T28RKS Wildcat and they just don't stay. The issue is the screws that go into the wall. I've tried drilling them out, pounding in a yellow plastic anchor and it was better but two them are loose again. Anyone have a suggestion for a permanent fix to anchor the "L" brackets to the wall. I'm limited for length because of wall thickness and not sure what these exterior walls have for a center.....foam sandwich I'm guessing.
Any practical experience will be appreciated. We do a lot of northern travel and things tend to get shaken up.
Thx in advance.

There was a thread I believe in the roo or shamrock section in which a poster mention his father using jack-nuts for sheet metal work. Looks like they might very well work on your paneling. I think he said they were available at Lowes. Just a thought

Thumbs up

Yup.... those 'jack-nuts' look like a good fix for that problem.
I have a few loose bottom blind tension screws that could use this help also.
Thanks

A well nut would also work. It's a rubber piece, with a lip, that has an enclosed nut within the rubber. You insert the well nut into an opening in the wall. As you tighten a machine screw in the threads, the rubber on the well nut, on the inside of the wall, will compress and swell against the wall and the larger lip of the nut on the outside of the wall holds it in place. They can be removed anytime by simply loosening the machine bolt. They can be found on eBay and Lowes sells them...here's a link:

Shop Standard (SAE) Well Nuts at Lowes.com!
