Bay door hinges

Anyone had a problem with bay door hinge screws shearing off at the screw head? Opened a door yesterday and three screws popped their heads. When trying to take door off to repair, unscrewing other screws sheared the heads off as well. Seems like inferior self tapping screws have been used.

Oh Boy! One of my bay doors had loose screws and the whole door latch mechanism shifted and I could not open the door when on the road. I had to go to the next bay, empty everything out of that bay, crawl in, push everything from the defective bay over to the bay I just climbed in, align the opener, and re-tighten to finally open up that bay door. This al
l happened at a Flying J pit stop. I had to get in that bay A.S.A.P. to get my ramp out for Stella the pig. The minute I stop and the engine shuts down, she heads right to the door to exit and do her "business" and will take out anything in her way. After completed, I repacked everything, (which was alot, I was on vacation), and the door functioned normally. All screws were never fully tightened on that door. After dinner that evening, I went around to every basement door. Some screws were put in on angle and the minute I went to tighten the first one, it sheared right off. Very strange that half the doors allowed the screws to fully tighten. The other half of the doors, the screws just spun and were stripped. And as I said, the ones put in on angle, sheared off. Issue now on my list for Middlebury (vacation?)
