How to fix sagging shower door

The shower door on our '13 3100 is sagging. The side with the handle & slider lock is lower than the side by the hinge. It's not off a lot. I can fit the tip of my little finger in the bottom by the hinge side but can't fit anything on the handle side. I need to almost lift the door then open it. Then the top of the door waves back & forth once it opens. I looked at the hinge area & don't really see how it adjusts. Does anybody have any experience with this?

Without a picture I don't know what your frame work looks like but when mine was sagging it was because the frame work of the shower had pulled away from the wall on the top. I had to drill a hole through the aluminum, glue the panel and frame work, and then run a screw through the frame into the wall. It's not gonna move now.

I went to the storage lot and grabbed a few pics.

Definitely don't think the frame is pulling away from the wall based on the way it looks (was horizontal with the wall all the way down).

Pic 1. Gap at bottom of door on hinge side. Bigger.

Pic 2. Gap at bottom of door on handle side. Smaller.

Pic 3. When opening, the door opens at the top but binds at the bottom.

Pic 4. The frame on the inside. The two screws on the left - there are 5 of them from top to bottom. The screw on the right - there's one on either side of the door and it looks like it holds the sweeper thing in place.

I would say this way since day 1 but possibly getting a little worse. Not on jacks or stabilizers but on level pavement.

Found a website for shower enclosures America with contact info. Give them a call. Saw the sticker on your door.
