I have a problem with the screws on the bottom of the kitchen panel and across on the bottom of the side dinette panel of the screws coming out while driving. Anyone have any good fixes, I've tried the glue and tooth pick method? Thanks!

I use SP600 or GOO to hold them in.

I took some long 1 1/4" square, drive wood screws and replaced what was there.

Just took the screw out and stuck a toothpick in the hole beside the screw as I screwed it back in- tooth pick will break off so you dont even see it - seems to have worked.
