    Anyone know what type and size bolt is used to attach the roof to the lift arms on a Fleetwood Americana model 2007? I saw one or two was missing the other day when I had the camper open and it's on my to do list for the next couple of weekends and I want to have the bolts ready. Anybody had to replace them, or know where to get them?

    Yep, looks like what I need is the 1/4 locknuts. Thanks for the heads up.

    Now, I think I recall reading you shouldn't tighten them up all the way? Anyone heard this before?

    Correct, there are not supposed to be tight.

    If you tighten the bolts to much it does not allow things to move which could jam the roof going up and down.

    I'm assuming the nuts worked themselves loose and that's why I need to replace them. Question is, how much loose do I leave them? Just not snug, or 1/4 inch?
