Has anyone else' stove top broken loose?  The two screws that hold it down are held down by some filmsy bracket which has broken off. I cannot seem to order them myself from Suburban as I am not a dealer.  Has anyone come up with another option other than a dealer ordering them?

I had that problem a few years ago, I just screwed on a couple small angle brackets.

My burner grates kept coming off while traveling and upon examination it appears that four of these are missing.  I found much less expensive ones here https://www.shopguarantyrvparts.com/product-p/122060.htm?gclid=EAIaIQobChMInMr5tsib4wIVDb7ACh39yQN1EAQYAyABEgK8uvD_BwE

Has anyone found replacement screws for the stovetop/bracket?

I've been looking at this more and I have questions.  My problem is that the screws that bolt the stove top down are very loose so the top slides around and the grates rattle and pop off while traveling. I have two brackets but there appear to be more slots that could hold brackets and there are more holes in the top like those the screws go through. I have the 2016 172 with the older style stove top.

1) How many brackets do these normally have? 
2) Have any of you found a way to buy those little screws?
3) Have any of you found other ways to keep this more secure?

Thanks1
