Couch movement in 26.5 RLS

Folks, I have a little problem that cropped up during our little 3,800 trip with our HT 26.5 RLS. The couch seems to be "held" to the wall by two fairly small screws and they pulled out of the Luan siding. I talked to Jayco customer service and the gentleman suggested anchoring the brackets into the Luan with those metal molly bolts, just don't get them too long. Does this seem like the best solution.

This problem doesn't seem to have cropped up until this latest trip but we had a bunch of fairly rough roads with a lot of curves as well.

Well, I decided to see if the screws had stripped out or just "wiggled" out. They seem to have "wiggled" out, so I just moved the couch a bit and reattached them to the wall and the couch and everything is now pretty solid. Will just have to remember to take a look at the screws in the future to make sure they're still all the way in.

In my trailer the couch had L brackets on each side of the base. Only one side had a screw in it attaching it to the floor, but hey, You can't have everything.
Put a screw in the other side, and the couch seems to stay put.
