Shower Door Crooked

2009 Flying Cloud FB. Shower door shows a 2 inch bottom opening on the hinge side and a 3/4 inch opening on the latch side. Tearing the nylon water sweep. Anyone have any experience with adjusting these doors? Thank you for any help you might be able go give.

We had nothing but trouble with our shower door. The second time it ripped loose and fell off we replaced it with a nice shower curtain and liner. Less weight, less worry, less water on the floor.

Whoa! I love having a shower door in our 2012 27ft International that we purchased new. We needed to have the shower door adjusted shortly after we got it which was under warranty. However, now that the trailer is out of warranty the door has completely come apart. My husband has been able to repair it twice, but it just keeps coming apart. Has anyone out here had success with a replacement door? I don't think I want to deal with a shower curtain. We have an appointment at JC later this summer to have it looked at but we are concerned it will just be an expensive temporary repair.

I have the same problem with my 2013 AS. I did not know how to repair my shower door. I hope that someone can help me and the others.

We put about 30k miles a year on our AS. I replace the shower door every 2 years. Just the cost of having fun

Interesting thread. We have zero problems with our shower door. Could you all post pictures for the edification of the rest of us?

Shower door needs adjustment

Boy! Have we had experience. We had the door adjusted under warrantee after it had settled low enough on the hinge to tear the sweep. Then the great crew at Colonial recommended that we replace the door. We haven't towed much since the replacement although we're about to embark on a three-month journey. I think we're about to learn something - let's hope it's good.

HI everybody,

I have had many problems with my 2013 Airstream Flying Cloud shower door.

1- The shower door slipped down in the hinge requiring to lift up to opened and to closed it;
2- All the ajustement screws became loosened;
3- The plastic threshold felt down and out;
4- The magnets door did not closed adequately.

After I put on 2 plastic shims with no success, my best friend and I resolve all the problems.

1- To have a better solidity. we changed at each corner the 6-32 1 inch metal screw for 6-32 3 inches and we put on 2 reinforcing angles at the hinge side;
2- To obtain the same door level, we changed the glass shower for a plexiglas of the same thickness and we reduce the weight of the door at 8 pounds (19 pounds);
3- To always maintain a good level, we remove the plastic hinge and put on a stainless piano hinge like the door toilet;
4- To do not torn off the plastic threshold, we adjusted the shower door at 5\16 inch from the metal threshold, as required by the mfg. Total cost 75$ (CAN).

P.S. The Airstream hourly rate is 125$(USA) and require at lees one day to repair it.
