Shower door adjustment

I have a AF 25y and my shower door is not square with the rest of the shower enclosure. I looked to see if it was adjustable but I didn't see any way to adjust it. Does anyone know if its possible to adjust the door?

There was a thread on the Outdoors RV forum a week or two ago. Not sure if it will help. For some reason, my phone is not letting me post the link. Good luck.

Our shower door opening did not allow the shower door to close properly. Pushing on the side of the shower just a little brought everything into alignment. I had a linen closet within 4" of the shower side and mounted a ready rod with adjustment nuts between them to adjust for perfect alignment. Been working fine for several years.

I see the shower door adjustment thread in the ORV forum - my shower does not have the rounded doors. It is a corner unit with a hinged door that opens on the right hand side.

1Blue78 -

Did you get your shower door issue resolved? I have the same issue with a 2021 ORV, so would like to take advantage of anything you have learned.

Sorry I haven't sorted it out yet (sadly). I will be taking it in for service (when some replacement cupboard doors come in) and I will ask them if adjustment is possible.

I will keep you posted
I am not sure when I will get my replacement cupboard doors (which is when I will also follow up on the shower door adjustment). I have been out of cell service for a few weeks and I will follow up with my dealer on Monday

The guide looks helpful. Mine is well sealed with silicone, though. I am not sure I can get it loose enough to adjust the door.

My trailer is still under warrantee. Maybe i can get the dealer to adjust it.

I have had a close look at mine too and following the procedure in the link will be a lot of work and may not be worth it. I am going to try to cut a small washer and slip it in under the lower hinge to raise the door a bit. This will not correct the real problem but it may be 'good enough' ...Stay tuned

That is my kind of solution!

My rig is sensitive to twist if the trailer. The last time we were out the shower door would not close at the bottom. After tweaking the stabilizers it was tight but would close. That will be one of my set-up checks in the future.

So I cut a small washer and pressed it in under the lower shower door hinge then crushed it a bit soo it stays put. This has not corrected the angle of the door but it does to lift the door enough that it doesn't catch any more.
Now if only I could figure out how to keep the burner on my fridge from going out in the wind...

I will look more closely at that. I tried to lift the door, and it seemed there was very little vertical play.

You used a typical cut washer, maybe about 0.05” thick?
