What Screws are used on the underbelly?

My 2013 Jayco Eagle has had several screws in the underbelly that holds up the plastic sheeting disappear (probably due to rusting out). I'm trying order it on Amazon because Homedepot/Lowes do not carry them. I think it is galvanized with a built in washer. Does anyone know the proper description and where I can purchase them? Thanks in advance.

What you need is a truss head self tapping screw.

LOL, if you can't find an answer to a Jayco issue here, you probably can't find one.

They are self tapping metal-to-metal roofing screws with a neoprene washer. Fastenal or a metal building supplier might have them.

I think these are the screws I used to refasten the coroplast; they are self drilling and have a neoprene washer and are at Lowe's (clicky).

Thank RVhiker. I just bought some of the roofing screws. I'll start putting them in this weekend.

They are also called a "lath" screw.

Danno,
I looked at those screws as well, but the person at Lowe's said the roofing screws will hold up much better exposed to weather than the zinc plated lath screws. I did finally manage to get Jayco to write me back and the screws that they use are described as

Jayco Part Number 0152303 Screw, panhead quad Tek 2 #8X1inch epigard with neoband washer made by Wesco Industrial in Elkhart Indiana 574-262-2505

Wesco only sells by box of 7500 and I don't need that many. I also spoke with some RV dealers and they use whatever they have. Typically #8 X 1" self tapping screw with a fender washer. The screws I bought are #12X1" self tapping roofing screws with a coating and neoprene washer.
