Winter Skirting Screw Holes

We got our skirt installed and I was curious as to whether or not anyone has had leaks at the screw holes or are they in an area where I shouldn't even worry about a leak? The turnbuckle are located right where the actual metal rv skirt meets the fiberglass siding. I'm not sure they used anything with the screws to "seal" them in. Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, I tried searching but no luck on what my exact question is.

A picture might help. If the screws go through anything other than the sheet metal I think the need some sort of sealant on them.

Even if the screws go through the aluminum skirting and there's no potential for leaks inside the trailer, you really don't want the added moisture under the trailer, so if the screws leak, you'll wind up with puddles and resultant mold/mildew under the trailer. The less moisture under the trailer the better.

I'd seal all the screws with a dab of clear polyurethane sealant under the head. Better safe than sorry....
