The dinette on our 2002 25' Safari is very wobbly. The area where the upper and lower brackets are attached to the wall seems to be very loose, almost spongy, which is causing the wobble. The bracket screws are seated tightly but it is as if they are not biting into anything behind the wall, only the first thin layer of metal. The curtain track is just above the upper dinette brackets and is also loose, the screws turn freely. I don't know the exact construction of the interior wall so I am wondering if I replace the screws with some just a little bit larger if that will bite into whatever is behind the wall which will tighten up the dinette (and curtain track). I guess the best way to describe it is that the dinette brackets are secured tightly to the first layer of wall, but that layer of wall is floating freely. As I move outward along the wall to the corners the wall stiffens up considerably, and the curtain track screws are very tight and secure there.

I'm thinking that over time the weight of the dinette has separated the wall from whatever it was bonded to, causing the softness. Can anyone tell me what is behind the wall and if larger screws are the answer?
