2014 FC shower door

We just drove several miles on a washboard gravel road. When we got to the campsite we saw that the shower door had dropped half and inch and wouldn't open and close properly. The washboard shaking of the tailer bent the screw at the top of the hinge that keeps the door at the proper height. It's a pretty flimsy arrangement.

It will be an easy fix, but in the mean time I put a shim under the door to get the proper height so the door will operate properly. I don't know if there should be a shim that was missing, but there certainly should be. If you're planning on driving washboard, put in a shim before you go. A plastic bottle cap works well as a shim.
