Newmar DS bedroom slide slide motor mounting

This is on a 2010 Dutch Star 3623, Bedroom slide, wardrobe side. The slide motor bolts to a metal frame and this frame has 4 bolts into the compartment walls. I cant seem to get 2 of these frame bolts to tighten up. I cant tell if the nuts are free spinning and cant see them or get to these nuts to put wrench on it to keep them from turns cause they seem to be behind a channel iron . So ... Ideas on what to do here. regrets for the poor pic.

The 4 bolts that hold slide out motor do come lose and we have found use locktite on them stops them from coming lose. It sounds like the 2 bolts have stripped the threads. You might try using a tap to see if that helps. The torque is 35 foot pounds on those bolts. Since those bolts thread into motor the next step after a tap would be to either go next size larger in either SAE or Metric because to fix that would be to replace motor.

Locktite wont help me till I can get to the nut that appears to be hidden behind a channel beam on the outside of the compartment. I can see this channel from the rear side of the rear wheel well...I am a little afraid to remove the bolt completely thinking if there is a nut, the nut might fall off and be lost... or is this bolt threading into the channel itself. one pic shows the motor bolted to a frame- these are tight. the other pic shows where this frame has a bolt to the wall of the compartment which I can't tighten nor have access to the nut for this bolt.

You have rods that travel through a slotted iron flange and there is only one nut to stop slide when it travels out, there are two nuts on slide flange that lock rod to it.
Check this bedroom wardrobe slide and see if it helps you. Link found in QT's # 3 --- PROBLEM SOLVERS.
