Sliding Closet Drawers Dragging

In my 2008 Winnebago Tour, the sliding mirrored doors on the rear closet are dragging on the bottom rail. In fact, the bottom aluminum channel is all marred up from the bottom of the doors as they slide. I tried to see if there was an adjustment but it looks like they are set as high as they go. I cannot even see how to remove the doors to take a better look.

Has anyone else seen this? Any ideas on how to adjust the doors? Any ideas on how to remove the doors?

Thanks in advance.

I think if you take a light and look close, you will see the screws that hold the upper track have come loose.

Thanks for replying. I did check and all of the screws are tight. The upper track is solid and is up as high as it can go.

OK, my next thought. Is this a new problem or has it been that way since new or when you acquired the coach?
I mentioned the loose track screws because that happened to one of my pocket doors a while back.

It seems to come and go and is based on whether the coach is sitting on all fours or on the jacks, and I think whether there is a little twist to the coach.

But in most cases, if I pick up on the doors, I can get them to slide OK. But there is no adjustment left on the doors that I can see. It looks like they are adjusted all the way to the top. I only need an 1/8" or so to make it slide smoothly.

Had the same problem on our 2008 Itasca Latitude and they also looked like they were at the top of the adjustment screw, but found there was still some adjustment left when trying the screws, it took very little to get to the point that the doors no longer were riding on the lower track.

Are all the sliding doors rollers in the track correctly? Is one or more of the rollers broken?

All of the rollers on in the track correctly and none of them are broken.

I tried to adjust the door up, but the adjustment was at the very top already. I thought if I could move the adjuster down a little, it would work. So I removed the one screw that goes into the door frame and then realized that the adjuster hooks over the top of the metal frame, not allowing it to go any lower.

Here is a picture of the adjuster.

Looking at your photo. What if you removed the single screw that holds the adjusting mechanism to the door frame and moved it down a quarter inch. Then readjust the adjusting screw to the new position for height.

My mirrored doors have glides on the bottom and rollers at the top. Sounds like your glides are missing.
