Slide out support screws

We have a 2015 Dutchmen aerolite 319bhss. We are only 5 months into full timing. We have noticed just today the screws that hold the slide out assembly (box) whatever it's called haves broken off at the top of one side of the slide. When u move slide u can see the whole box move. Very concerned since it looks as though these hold on the slide to the trailer! I am attaching a picture so you can understand. Click image for larger version

Those strips just hold the seals but if they are not tight and sealed water intrusion is possible. You could drill new holes or drill out the old screws and put in some stainless screws then reseal. I would do this sooner rather than later.

Ok thank you for the help! Just seemed like it was the border to the whole slide. When my husband pushed on that gapping area the whole box of the slide moved. We will hopefully somehow get the old broken screws out and put in the stainless. Hoping to trade rvs soon for a fifth wheel!!
