Proper Adjustment for Shower Door

I purchased our 2005 Airstream International used. The shower door has been a little bit of a pain. The bottom "catches" when you try to open the door until it suddenly pops open. Other than this issue the shower works fine and the door never seems to let water get outside of the shower.

Today I decided to adjust the door. There is a small bolt on the top of the shower door near the hinge which seems to slide in a slot on top. I loosened it and was able to "angle the door so it no longer rubbed on the bottom right corner. Unfortunately, once I adjust the door so it doesn't rub, it no longer stays closed unless it is locked. This doesn't seem right either. Locking the shower door from the inside is not very easy. There appears to be a dark strip on the door and the frame. I thought this might be a magnetic strip that would hold the door closed but I can't seem to adjust the door so it doesn't rub and remains closed.

Any help (again) would be appreciated.

John

Not too sure why I'm not getting a response on the shower door adjustment? It looks like there may also be an adjustment similar to the top on the bottom. Is there a magnetic strip on the door? It looks like there is but I can't tell for sure.

i think it is a magnet. test it with a screwdriver to see if it grabs it. i don't know how to adjust it but i'd guess that you're not moving the height but the angle of the door with those bolts.

Hi Ricky,

Yes, the strips are magnetic. The trick is to loosen both bolts and try to adjust in such a way as to make sure the bottom doesn't rub while also keeping the strips touching so the magnet holds the door shut during a shower. As it turns out the only adjustments I can find are two small bolts, one at the top and one on the bottom. I don't see how these can hold the door without slipping while traveling. I'm going to see if I can make something to sandwich between the bottom of the door and the doorframe so the weight of the door is supported while traveling.

Thanks for your help.

John
