Has anyone noticed the heads of the screws holding the interior window trim are breaking off. It's like they were all over tightened at the factory weakening or just breaking the heads that are beginning to fall out. Other than drilling out each one does anyone know a remedy for this. Cheap imported screws one issue I think along with wrong screw gun setting.

I remember this being a problem with some of the 2017s. I haven't heard anything since then. What year is your Oliver?

I'll see if I  can find a thread for you.

Thanks. Yes it's a 2017 of course. Lost about 15 through out the trailer so far. I have not tightened them. We just find the heads of the screws laying around and find where they have broken. No rough terrain driving at all.

Here you go. 

Just curious, what's your hull number? Looks like most of the others were constructed about the same time.

I have had several break off.  My understanding is that it was an issue with the manufacturer of the windows over torquing the screws.

What did you guys do about it?  Afraid it will start letting water in. Do you know if it's just asthetic or not.? I will check on my Hull number but if memory serves it's 238. Again thanks for all the great input from this forum

Mine have been broken for at least 4 years.  I didn’t do anything, I don’t think there’s an issue with leakage.  I have not noticed any leaks at all.
