On the large slide the exterior bottom trim is loose. At first I thought there was a lack of adhesive and the pressure of the weather seal gasket was pushing the trim piece out. I found the situation is worse than that when I put the slide out to examine the details.
On the under side there is a metal strip attached to this trim piece that is screwed into the slide floor. I noticed a screw missing and on check further found that almost all the screws in the strip were loose. Furthermore, they were also very short. They have either been sheared off by too much torque in the power tool or they we cut off to not go in too deeply.
By short I mean 1/4 in. or less of thread on what might have been a 1/2 in. sheet metal screw.
I am interested if anyone else has loose screws (in this metal strip I mean, other interpretations being very subjective and may be related to having a DP
) and also the length of the screws installed. Using a probe there is something in the screw holes but I don't know whether it is the rest of a sheared off screw or if it is something I should not be drilling int. So I am unsure of whether to drill and put in a longer and/or oversize screw. Since the bolts for the sofa seat belts are attached in this same area it is probably OK to drill in this area.
You may want to check how tight the screws are in this area on your Palazzo because if the same person over-torqued mine it is a good possibility you will have the same issue. Please report results of your checks.
