Sliding bedroom doors won't close DSDP

This is the second time this has happened. The first door will go across but the second door won't come with it. We just had it fixed and were told it had a broken bracket. We have only used it a couple of times at the most.. I don't find any bracket broken and don't know how it operates so can figure it out. Help.

With both doors opened (locked open for travel) look under the bottom edge of the door that is on the bedroom side. There is a small bracket that slides up into a slot on the bottom of the door. Typically, that bracket has jumped out of the slot, keeping the second door from sliding. Lift the door upward and get the bracket/glide back into the slot.

Thank you! The bracket had moved from the correct slot of the door. Hence I moved it back it worked fine.

I kinda pulled the bedroom door toward the back of the coach and liftwd the kitchen door and it went in. I think I got lucky because the kitchen door didn't really want to lift up much at all.

I had the same issue. Mine kept jumping off of the bracket. I ended up putting some thin plastic wedges on the bottom of the door segments that keep everything in alignment.

Our dog runs into it often and knocks it off the track. Kind of a pain, but I do the same to get it back in the track.

With a stubby Phillips screwdriver loosen the two screw on the bracket on the bottom of the door. Itís the bracket that jumps the track. Once loose, you can easily move onto the track and retighten . Gotta lay on your stomach, but 60 seconds fixes it.

Thanks, everyone. I had the same problem and was an easy fix. I love fixing stuff myself. With some help from those who know better. Thanks again!
