30 ft. Classic Limited pocket door adjustments

I own a 2010 30 ft Classic Limited and need to adjust the two pocket doors. If someone had done this I could use a little instruction. Thanks

Patrick,
Would like to help you, but I don't understand what you are referring too...

Are you talking about one of the exterior doors or something inside?

I have adjusted mine. It is pretty simple. Each of the roller assemblies at the top are threaded. Just adjust the height individually so that the door edge touches equally at the top and bottom on the casing across from the pocket wall.

I also have added the little stick on carpet-like discs on the door at the top and bottom edge so I get a nice thud when closing instead of wood on wood knock.

Thanks so much to both Getoutdoors and dznf0g for your help. Sorry that I wasn't clear that they were inside doors such that the 30 foot Classic Limited has. But I did do what you (dznf0g) suggested and it worked. Doors are closing fine now. Thanks again for the quick response.

No, it was a brain leak on my part (.... hate it when that happens).

The pocket door forward the bath on my trailer was over 3 inches off - more than the adjustments could compensate. I had to build new headers above the door to get it to close correctly....

Taggin on, my pocket door forward of the bath goes too far back into the pocket. Do you take the header pieces off to get to the adjustments? I can *see* them in there, but can't touch them.

If you don't mind, I think I might just utilize your tip there...

I am making the assumption that yours is the same as the newer models....the adjustments referenced above are at the top of the door (two of them). They are the points from which the door hangs from its track. If you have a "stop" issue, I believe that to be just 2 blocks of wood affixed to the wall at the rear of the pocket. Sounds like the top one has come loose.
Unscrew one of the outer walls (for me it is the BR wall which has no cabinetry, etc. attached to it) and let it lean. Then you can reach back there, after removing the door from its track and setting it aside, and repair the stop. I had my door off and the wall loosened in order to backplate the BR wall for a flat screen wall mount installation.

While I was in there, I also mounted the "carpet" tabs in there to make the stop more silent

The door header is just cosmetic. The real deal is the pocket track. If you remove one of the pieces of head board (two screws) you can see how the track works. It's held in place by only one screw.
