update collection based on shema change

I have a SharePoint List that had column for storing color data R, G, B I renamed them to Red, Green, Blue (because for some reason Power Apps renamed the R column to OData__x0052_). I am unable to see these changes on the Data Connection to the SharePoint List and every time I create and/or Fill in the collection it does not update to the new column names and the R, G, B columns reappear. Are collections pulled from Web Browser caches or cookies? Why do the columns not update? I experienced the same problem with a different list which had columns renamed and the first character was replaced with OData__x0050_.

May u change the column name or format before? SharePoint always find this error on powerapps, what we can do is
1. Remove the data connection on powerapps;
2. Delete the rename/re-format column n new a column to revert;
3. Re-connect the SharePoint in PowerApps;
one thing need to confirm is If u use environment variable as SharePoint connection, need to publish all cus_ before u add it into PowerApps
Hope can help u~

Spoiler
i tried your recommendation it seems there is a bug in components because when i create a gallery on a screen it uses the new schema but when i create a gallery in components it uses the previous schema. i am just not going to not use components i already wasted too much time and they are impossible to update.
