New to Me Sunseeker

We just purchased a 2017 Sunseeker C class with a Ford F450 Chassis. It had only 5200 miles and is pretty much like new.

I noticed right off that the overhead cabinet hinge design is not the greatest. One of hinges pulled out of the door, and I see they use a plastic insert into the wood door and the screw is suppose to expand it and anchor it. I checked the others and noted that some of them were showing the same problem.

I was wondering if I shouldn't proactively try to permanently repair these before they get to be a problem. I was thinking that epoxy might work to hold the plastic inserts in the hole and the screws would not really need to expand the anchor as the epoxy would hold it in place. Of course I'm not sure the epoxy would stick to the plastic?

Has anyone tried this? Will it work?

It should work . If the inserts have a ridge on them, then the epoxy should hold them in. Personally I would just do the loose ones for now. Good luck with the repair and have fun and safe on the road.
