I have a 179. the panel below the frige that hades the wires keeps loosing up. There only two screws holding it in place. the panel moves in and out each time you open and close the slideout. I have had to tighten the screws each camping trip. Now the screws are sctippen out,and the panel is ready to fall off. Is there a good way to fix this from happening.

I had the same problem.  The panel attaches to a sheet metal panel extending down below the box.
I drilled out the holes in the panel, and fastened it with 3 larger hex head self taping sheet metal screws.  It's been holding up well, but still wiggles a bit as it's only fastened at the top.  By the way, electronic control box for the slide out is what you see mounted on the outer well behind the panel.  Hope this helps.
