Screws and Exterior Trim

2005 Thor - Four Winds Majestic, M28R

Finally putting rubber down.

What is the easiest way to obtain front and rear termination bars, Drivers Side trim strip/gutter, and passenger side trim/awning mount?

The ones I removed and are cleaned up, but are in rough shape.

Also, best place to get those 1" square drive pan head wood screws?

I also like the positive drive of a torx head, but neither are available at local HD, Lowes, Taylor, etc...

Are these local RV shop shelf items?

My flat roofline measures about 26 feet flat straight line front to rear.

Thank you.

I bought some in a local Sutherlands Hardware. I don't know if they are in your area, but they are in N. Texas and Oklahoma. I imagine Ace Hardware may carry them as well. Hope you find those screws because they are indeed are easier to torque in.

Google FASTENAL. They handle about everything if a store is in your area.

Have a nice day - Darrel

I'm an amateur woodworker and use square drive screws for most everything. I get mine from McFeely's (online or catalog).

Fastenall is another good source for screws of all kinds and have stores in many areas: https://www.fastenal.com/

For trim & moldings, many online RV parts places carry various kinds, and also some Ebay sellers. Here's a few:

http://www.prvparts.com/rv-trim-molding-s/2451.htm
http://www.interstatervmetalandsuppl...u_moulding.htm

Rv dealers have little or nothing along those lines.

For general information they are called Robertson screws. You should be able to buy at most any hardware store.

BTW , I just looked and Amazon has a box of 1" #10 stainless for $11.80 a box if you can wait a couple days.
As far as I'm concerned stainless is the only way to go.

Try McMaster Carr McMaster-Carrfor just about anything. I use them for screws, Viton fuel lines, electric pumps, hysol epoxies, etc. I think they have about anything.

This may be true if you live in Canada or close to it as Robertson's are the quasi standard there. Most other places they will be hard to find. McFeeleys.com is the best place to start looking. They can be found elsewhere cheaper, but Mc Feeleys will have nearly nothing square drive in stock...
