My 2012 22' Sport had disintegrated screws also (even tho' not included in this recall) so I replaced them with proper hardware. It's a good time to check for rust and cleanup and paint down there anyway.

I posted some comments about a year ago post #1264 on the 20-footers thread re the failed screws. The recall subject just arose as the TT was in for other service. I did not receive the original recall notice from JC as it was issued 2/2015 and we bought our 2014 FC20 new 5/2015. I wonít comment on why the dealer sold the trailer with the recall outstanding or hadnít picked it up during one of the half dozen service appointments. That speaks for itself.

I discovered the failed screws a year ago just before a trip. So I just swapped out with new of OEM self tapping. Of the 4 OEM screws locations, 1 was intact, two had failed, I expect over-torqued and one was never tapped. I was lucky that the one screw held.

At any rate, the dealer finally picked up the recall, apparently saw the new screw heads and figured it had been done. After reading this thread and calling their attention to the bolt specifics of the recall, I have an appointment new week for the proper thread cutting bolts and Iíll be looking over their shoulders during the 20 minute process.
