Save on future fixes with this simple screw procedure

We had a travel trailer for years and checked tightened all external and internal screws and never had anything fall off.
We just did this inside and outside our motorhome.
Here are a few pictures to help so that you do not miss any little screws
About 75% of the screws turned!

Any our bedroom usb cpap screws were loose and the master closet bar screws loose etc..

Protect your investment!

Screw issue today

Our door was beginning to jam and I was thinking we had a Bauer version of the TriMark lock issue. Got the door open this morning and when looking I found two screws securing the side of the lock to the door were loose, one almost all the way out. I tightened the 2 screws and the door now opens and closes as it should.

Next stop is auto parts for Loctite.

if its a screw into particle board or plastic i will remove the screw and inject epoxy, then re insert the screw. Loctite blue is good if you will want to remove the screw or bolt in the future.
Its expected that screws and bolts come loose from driving and rattling around.

I do the same but use wood glue for the screws in wood.
