Our 2012 Classic 31 had a screw completely let go of the frame. This let the door fall down but did not break. Out of warranty, of course, so I went with a solution I used in our '92. A replacement shower door called a SHUB: https://www.newlinebathroom.com/shub...boats-c-1.html

For everyone who has used the nylon spacer as a fix, what do you do to prevent the rough edge of the aluminum frame from chewing up the top of the nylon. Our favorite dealer replaced put the aluminum spacer with a plastic top under the hinge and it works fine for a while. Once the plastic wears off, the door drops back down and is difficult to open and close.

What about a nylon piece at the bottom of the door itself and another on the threshold. Then, it is nylon against nylon...

I made my spacer out of a piece of plastic cutting board. I sawed a groove in it to fit the ridge in the threshold to keep it in place. Sorry the photo is rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.


I haven't noticed any wear.

After 5 years of various supports and two major repairs I finally came up with a 1" long piece of aluminum that I glued in place with silicone. The piece must be long enough to not only support the vertical piece of the frame, but also support the bottom cross piece of the door. The support keeps the plastic hinge from breaking and the support under the cross piece keeps the screws from sheering off. I am attaching three pictures of the block in place. OOPs..I can't figure out how to insert pictures. I will work on that.
