Thanks

Yes, they are a PITA, though they do serve a purpose. Since we have been under warrantee, I have had the dealer deal with them, but their method is to fill the hole with wood filler, let it harden then drill pilot holes in, coat the screw with glue and screw them back into place. They reattached a couple of cabinet doors that way and they seem to be holding.

That is my go-to method for any screw in the RV: liberally coat it with glue before screwing it back in. Seems to have held so far and I've used it on many (on all of our RVs over the years).
