    Hi Ed and welcome to the RVUSA Forum. If the previous owner slopped a bunch of silicone over the area, he had a water leak and now you have rotten wood back there. The only way to fix it that I know of is to peel back the siding, cut out all the rotten wood and replace it. It will be a major undertaking and probably expensive to boot. You might be able to inject epoxy in there and get the screws to hold but I wouldn't bank on it. Wish I had better news for you. Maybe one of the other posters will have better advice. Good luck.

    You might try longer screws. I have seen this work but it depends on how bad the damage to the wood is.
