Rusty screws in the INSIDE!!!

Just going over the screws on my slide out and 6 screws are crooked so I remove the top one to start with and the tip is rusty. Did the 2 under that one and the same thing, rusty ends on the inside. So I guess I have a water problem between the inner wall and the outside of that wall that will show up in maybe a few months or a few years from now. Hope you all do a close inspection.

With it angled like that is a sure way for water to enter. Poor QC at the factory.

All the screws on my storage door frames are the same way on our 197. Crooked as h&LL. I just put a dab of Dicor on the heads. We are going to buy an Eagle HT fifth wheel next spring and I will be going over that unit with a fine toothcomb. I told my dealer to plan on a 4hr delivery inspection.

I put these washers on them there SST and rubber #8 the cost was .15ea. Hybrid EXP21M 2010. Screws are on the slide out the outer edge also check above the front bunk end on the curved section. Both ends were like this and I bet the worker was on a ladder and when he had to reach right or left he put them in crooked.

I re-sealed the rain gutter areas on my 23B recently and used Geocel Pro-Flex around all the screw heads that were exposed.

Pro-Flex is one the easiest caulks I've ever used in my life. The other one was Dimeric (sp ?) two part epoxy caulk. We tooled it with kerosene and the open cell packing foam material that was cut into a wedge shape. Pro-Flex, a small cup of mineral spirits and your fingertip is all you need for professional results. I swear by the stuff!!

I had screws like that inside my previous TT, it ended up that the rear wall had some major water infiltration.
