Should I Repair My Casita Floor?

The previous owners pulled up the subfloor and scraped out the old crumbling adhesive, then they screwed the subfloor back down. Now there are screws protruding through the fiberglass underneath. I'm just wondering if I should remove those screws and seal up the holes? And if so, would butyl caulking be a reasonable/good seal for the holes...? Thanks!

Well, haven't heard of this before and a couple pics would help us out. I'm going to do a bit of guessing. I think I've read that older Casitas didn't have a FG sandwiched floor. If that's the case I can see the po doing this. If yours has wood showing and you can get to the screws I think I would remove them and relocate them to tap into the metal cross frame. On the other hand, if the floor is fine and since it's under the TT you could use the KISS method. Trim them off, put a bit of paint on the ends and go camping. I promise I'll never look under your TT to check .
