Slide trim

Luckily, mine didn't suffer the swelling floor others have spoken of. Every single factory screw on the bottom of the bedroom slide was broken off. Drilled new holes and installed stainless steel screws.

I'm having this problem all over my 3605. Broken screws every where. Are new screws holding any better or are you seeing these break as well.

I think the problem has to do with how they were put in. To much torque with the driver will cause any screw to break off.
I agree replace with stainless, that's what I've done.
