The 24.1 model?

On ours I found the screws holding the "roller" (for lack of a better term) to the door would back out and I continually had to tighten them--until I dipped the screws in glue and tightened them up.

Not sure where I figured it out or saw it but I have been doing that in all our RVs for anything that I've mounted into the walls or wood: Dip the screw in a good woodglue.

I figure its doing a couple of things: Keeping the wood together and preventing the screw from backing out.

It doesn't prevent removal of the screws as I've had to do that as well; you still can unscrew them.

Oh, the wealth of knowledge and ingenuity in this forum.
