Valance Box

Our valance boxes on our 2009 Eagle Superlite 298RLS all seem to be having the screws fall out of them. On a few I have started a new hole but I have feeling this will only be a temporary fix because they will pull out of the luan, anyone come up with something that seems to work other than making more holes. It is only the screws at the bottom of each side and it is beginning to get a little frustrating on trying to figure out a fix without making swiss cheese out of the walls.

I had an issue with the screw coming out of the wall for the sliding partition catch on our old 2005 Jay Feather LGT.
I installed an expanding wall anchor to solidly anchor the screw.

With the foam core walls, it was the only thing I could think of that would work. FWIW, make sure the wall anchor is shorter than the wall is thick, or it might want to come out the other side.
