And yes fender skirts flap in the wind while traveling and do loosen or break off screws

If you mean fenders, nuts and bolts work the best. If you use the nylon cored locking nuts, you don't need to apply forces strong enough to crack the fenders, and they will still be tight.

I took the plastic small fenders off & reinforced each hole with J B QUIK & reinstalled & also added metal strips (2 to each side) on inside of lower metal trim as seen in these pics.

I had posted in the past the way that I fixed the fenders. I've replaced all of the screws with small stainless steal bolts with washers and nylon bushed nuts. This will eliminate them vibrating loose.

I also placed a rubber cork between the fender and the wall on the front edge of the fender.

I was going to ask a related question, on our Redwood the metal lower section on the curbside slide (the portion to the rear of the plastic fenders) rattles in the wind, it's almost as if there should be some caulking long the lower edge where fits under the joining strip. I was thinking about placing some foam or rubber strip on the back side between the metal piece and the slide bracket to stop the rattling. Has anyone done this?
