Same here. My friend ask me to check mine since all of his were loose. When I checked them all were loose including 4 of them I could tighten with my fingers.
Pretty sad QC for a vehicle that is going down the highway at 60mph.

They do loosen up with time and use. It's a good idea to check them every year. Some will need a tweaking, and others will still be ok. The nature of the beast. Just an observation from having ours for going on 11 years.

IMHO, Spray some Fluid Film on them to slow the rust and go camping. Likely they would be a PITA to change out anyhow.
Hello! On our 2016 Jayco Eagle HT 5er , the bolts are under the under pinning. So would we need to drop that to check these bolts?

We have a 2020 24RBS and I needed to tighten them in the Fall of 2021, so I’ll check them again this Spring.

frame support bolts

So how do you check these bolts if you have the underpinning? We already have a list of 'to do's' after spending time on this site. Thank ya'll so much for the information!

If you are worried about that little surface rust on a bolt. Don't crawl under your truck.

When two dissimilar metals are touching, the electrolyte will jump-start the corrosion process. Some common electrolytes are water, salts, and bacteria. As electrons move from the anode (the basic metal) to the cathode (the noble metal), the first metal is vulnerable to oxidation.
So now you may create another concern.or coat the bolt threads with ultra ref gel it for.
They make a product call ospho it will convert rust ,then you can paint it .
Just my thoughts…
