Weird, Bedroom door glass shrunk!

Okay, so it did not really shrink, but it fell. I ass-u-med the glass was cut to fit the door but apparently there is some space in the bottom and the glass fell.I have tried to pull it up but it won’t budge. WD40? Even if I can pull it back up how do I keep it from falling again? Click image for larger version

I have not seen this before. My best guess is that the glass dropped due to road vibration and bumps. Remove the framing surrounding the glass and see how it attached to the door. You'll probably see the issue at the bottom of the glass area when exposed. Please keep us up dated.

Pull the trim off, shim the glass back up into position, reinstall the trim, and Bob's your uncle.
Happy Glamping.

Thanks guys. I will pull off the trim and see what happens. Just got back from the sand dunes and it is going into la Mesa RV for a new front left landing gear, jack or whatever you want to call it, a new hydro pump and they will fix that broken pipe, all under good Sam warranty.
