Default Roadtrek A/C Cover Panel Fasteners

Does anyone know what these fasteners are called and where to get replacements? These are long machine screw threading into a rubber plug that I think has a metal nut inside.

Our 200 is leaking worse than usual this season. I had the panel off the air conditioner bay earlier this year and noticed some of the fasteners were in poor shape. I suspect some of them may be leaking, or they are not holding the panel firmly enough against the seal.

TIA

Do does Lowes or virtually any hardware store. That way you can see better if the fit will be right, but likely more expensive.

My cover blew off in a hurricane. I installed new well nuts. I also picked up a roll of "pickup topper tape" to help seal it. It is actually closed cell foam with an adhesive that was quite effective and is marketed as a seal between a pickup and a topper.

Example:

This stuff is also handy elsewhere, and quite frugal. I used the above brand that I had laying around for a number of years and it worked well.

The cover will still be easily removable 'cuz the sticky is only on one side(bottom).

If you are talking about water leaking on the inside from the A/C, then you need to remove the inside A/C panel and look for loose hold down bolts. If they are loose then water will leak thru the gasket on the roof. Tighten them down and this should stop water leaking.
