What did you find on this? Did the screw pop through from the bottom, or did it come from the slide? Looks like mine did the same thing, I was totally perplexed by it!

I had the same issue. There is 2 of them, one one either side of the island. Both of mine came up at different times putting holes in the vinyl flooring on either side of the island. I kept screwing them back down until one day I finally pulled off the under belly of the trailer to try to find out what they were for and why they kept popping up. They go into a cross member under the trailer. Looked like they were just holding down the wood flooring. Not sure why they had to be so long. The cross member is pretty light gauge steel and my guess is the threads pulled out from the movement going down the road, and he screws would work there way up. Not sure how important they are, but I guess they must have put them there for a reason, but they are the only 2 like them that I could find under the entire trailer. I ended up putting a washer, lock washer, nut and red locktite on both of them. It was a pain taking the entire underbelly off the trailer so I was making sure they weren't coming up again.

Interesting. So thoughts on what I should do? In the short term, I guess just screw it back in from the top and hope for the best? I just don't want anymore damage to the slide out, it's already loosened and damaged the slide from being caught...Thanks for the info!

You could try taking it out and applying some sort of thread locker like loctite on it then screw it back down. Might hold it in.

About a month in to ownership, I just saw my awning is coming away at both ends. Middle seems fine. What did end up doing? Did you remove the awning to complete the repair? What screws did you use?

Thanks!

Have you had any more pop? What are the consequences of just removing it? What is it actually holding? I have one that popped up in front of the island in my 336, and promply ripped off the molding of the kitchen slide!

Thanks!

Dealer put mine back in w thread lock and epoxy over the top. Came back thru and made the hole bigger. Said it was common and keystone advised it was not needed. Dealer removed screw and patched the hole again. Haven’t had a problem since. About 10k miles and 2 years.
