Solving the leaky screw problem

It seems many RV manufacturers today are having problems with screws leaking. Some people are replacing every suspect screw with a stainless steel screw and some silicone in the hole. I think there is a better way. If every screw used on the outside of the coach would have a neoprene washer installed at the factory, there would be very few leaks. I helped erect steel buildings and grain bins that used a neoprene washer on every bolt and self drilling screw over 35 years ago. They still show no leaks.
BTW....this is not my idea. I looked at SOB toy hauler the other day and see that they are already doing this.

Most of my screws are beveled headed and at least semi counter sunk. Will these washera work for this set up?
