On my rig I can see the head. It looks like a carriage bolt. It should be replaceable if stripped.
Looks like it goes right thru the carpet. I will check to see if they are loose when it quits raining.

You mentioned that one bolt just "spins" upon tightening, so I was wondering if by chance the wood surface that the bolt head was originally anchored to was compromised (wood spilt, moisture, etc.) thus causing the bolt to spin or be pulled thru the floor structure when it was being tightened.

It was just thought I had if you were in fact noticing more exposed length of thread with the frequent re-tightening. As mentioned, try new lock washers next time, or some Loctite (threadlocker blue 242).

Loctite 242. That's the one!
