Bay door alignment

Need to align a couple of bay doors that are hanging down slightly at the latch end. Any suggestions as to best method to use, which screws to adjust and how to avoid shearing of the screw heads?

Chuck: no, I mean the doors are not hanging perfectly level so I need to adjust the hinges.

I am not at the MH, but there are hinge adjustment if I remember correctly. I did slide one of mine up or down to get the door square in the opening when I was adjusting the latches. But it has been awhile since that project was completed.

There seems to be a middle screw in a slider notch on the hinge so I'm assuming I have to loosen it to do the adjustment, but I read that others had experienced problems with screw heads stripping when being removed, so I'm trying to avoid that happening by asking the question.

Images on hinges. Should be easy to do, and don't use power tools to loosen and hopefully they won't break the screw heads. If they do, can drill out and replace screw.

Thanks. Do I loosen the outside screws first or just adjust the middle one?

Bob, from the looks of the hinge above they use the middle screw to adjust the door and then drive the other two to hold it. I would say you need to remove the two end screws, adjust the door, then drive the two end screws in a different place. You won't be able to put them back in the same holes. I can't tell if there's any adjustment where the bracket attaches to the Mh frame, but probably not. Noel

Thanks Noel. I'll hit it a shot when the weather clears up here in SC.
