Adjusting sliding door.

The sliding door on our 2016 was out of alignment and did not look good. I move the upper stud in and the door aligns perfect. Problem is it put lots of pressure on the screen and has to be slammed to close completely. Anyone else dealt with this?

Never worked easily

I have been tempted to remove the clip on the door frame completely and see how it works. If it does not close right I may put a magnet solution in place of what is there now. I will check it out again before getting on the road this spring.

Today I removed the sliding part of the screen door and left the fixed panel. The Sprinter sliding door is no longer in a bind when closed but I still have to slam it pretty hard to get it to fit flush when closed.

TOMHAMRICK - I notice the screen door on the GT is different than Lounge. Mine is like an accordion that folds away all the way. I am not sure why AS made it that way, it is flimsier than your rigid 2-pc. screen panels. But maybe the accordion type works better with your sliding door? Just a thought, no idea if it even fits with the different furniture. We never have issues with screen door binding with slider, but we also don't use either one much of the time.

We will leave the screen off for now. At least until spring.
