Erin and Kaitlin, Go to the nearest hardware or menards/Lowes/Home Depot and get a small container or muratic acid and use a few drops on the screws. (Use a plastic medicine dropper) Let it set 10 minutes and try to unscrew. What happens with metal screws in aluminum is a formed corrosion that causes the threads to lock to the skin and other aluminum such as frames etc. If you are afraid to use acid get a can of Liquid Torch and spray onto the screw heads. I find the acid will work much faster than any other method to break the corrosion loose and aloow the screws to be removed. If you break a screw head off in the process just drill out the screw with a drill bit of the same size as the screw and then used slightly larger Stainless Steel screws to re-attach the arms to the trailer.
