    I replaced my entire coroplast belly liner a few years ago after the original one disappeared while driving. I was able to reuse the fasteners in my case, they weren't the ones OP posted but more standard self-tapping screws. I could also reuse the screw holes from original installation. But as PNW_Steve mentions, a total pain in the butt project. It may not be necessary of you're only dropping a portion of the coroplast, but it my case things started going much better once I devised a way to lift and hold the unattached coroplast sheet from the centerline of the camper. What I came up with was a bottle jack in the middle lifting a sheet of plywood. This large surface area of the plywood helped lift and hold the unattached coroplast sheet while I aligned and screwed in. Before I did this, it was super difficult to keep things aligned and the further along I went the more out of alignment it would get

    Other than replacing black drain plumbing, that was the worst RV job I have ever worked.

    Good luck with your project.
    I will actually need to drop one of the tanks, I think the black water tank, to secure two bolts for a slide out Battery tray. Two of the eight bolts are above the tank. I am not looking forward to that par of the project.

    started a topic RV Undercarriage Fasteners

    RV Undercarriage Fasteners

    Wondering if anyone knows what these are called or where to buy them?

    I'm removing the corrugated plastic underneath my RV, and a couple of these broke.RV Undercarriage Fasteners.jpg
