Shower Door Issue

My shower door on my 2012 keeps dropping as we travel. I know they fixed these with added washers. Is this a permanent fix or just a band aid?
Does anyone have any experience with this that would help me? Thank You

The issue is the entire weight of the door rests on one small, cheap screw at the top of the vertical shower frame. My 28' 2012 Intl CCD had this issue, and I fully expect the same thing to happen to my '15 30' Classic. It's just a matter of time. There are plenty of posts on this problem, and there are various ways to "fix" the problem. My solution was to rip the whole shower door out on my 28 and replace it with a Kohler pivot point shower instead. It was about $150 as I recall, and a PITA to swap out. Just not a good design, and Airstream doesn't seem willing to do anything permanent about it.

Thanks for responding. Since I posted the question I have read several repair methods. I'm going to try the nylon block under the door. My shower door is not destroyed yet and that seems an easy fix if it works. Thanks for your help.
