Roof coming apart

Purchased a Montana high country last year. Sits on a permanent site. Last year water leaking in from AC unit. 3 loose bolts, 4th one was stripped. Water leaking in a window when it rains. Those issues have been fixed. Now I see the metal rail at the rear of the roof that holds the rubber roof in place in coming off. Screws on both ends have pulled out of the roof. How do I fix that? Has anyone see or heard of this issue? I am afraid if I screw it back down & caulk it it will just pull out again.

Bigger screws and Dicor self leveling sealant.

Ok, thanks. I am thinking bigger screws and more screws. For having bought a 5th wheel that cost more than my 1st house, I have not been happy with the purchase.

Put in some bigger screws. Then use crazy seal the DIY version of RV Armor so you never have to worry about your roof again

Screws that came out are #10x1". Using #12x1.5". Still not hitting any wood to pull the metal strip down. Try longer screws?

3" deck screws and Dicor & the job is fixed. If I needed 3" screws to hit wood, what the heck did the factory guy/gal think 1" screws were going to do?

They weren’t worried about it. They were only worried about slamming it together so they could go home early.
