How to adjust curved cabinet hinge above bed?

How do I adjust curved cabinet hinge above bed? It wouldn't bother me except the light does not go off!

Any help would be appreciated.

Best,

CJS

Are you certain it's the hinge that needs adjusting? Is the cabinet door not closing flush?

If it is closing flush, your problem probably isn't the hinge. There are switches on the cabinet frame and the top of the door that have to be aligned properly and in proper proximity to one another to cause the lights to turn off and on. On some trailers the contacts are adjustable by loosening screws and on others, like on my 2020 Globetrotter they appear to be glued in place.

Check to see if the switches are aligning properly before messing with the hinges. They may need to be relocated. You wouldn't be the first person to have with this problem with the switches as installed from the factory.

I door is misaligned now. Shifted down maybe a 1/4" to 3'8" of an inch

Also, my rig is a 2019 27FB GT if that matters

I figured it was a GT since you mentioned the cabinet curved doors.

The hinges on my 2020 GT are made by Grass so I'm going to guess yours are too. I don't have any personal experience working with these hinges but if you google "Grass hinge adjustment" you'll see a number of videos and "how to's". Good luck.
