Sliding glass patio door out of square

When closing, the bottom flushes but there is about 3/16 of an inch opening as you look to the top of the door at the close position. If I lift on the door, I can get it fully closed, but it is getting harder to do. This is a 2017 401flx Destination Camper. I cannot find the adjustment screws. Are there any ? I see holes at the top of the door by they appear empty. I think I may have adjustment screws on the bottom as I look closer down there ...

The 1st thing I would do is check to be sure the frame is square. If not check your jacks / supports as they maybe distorting the frame

I can say for sure the bottom track at the close point is very square and track is level all the way across. I cannot say the same for the top however.

If its the same as residential sliding doors there should be an adjustment screw for each bottom roller the is accessible from the sides, you will need a flashlight and your head on the floor to see it.

I believe I see that! However, because of the track it is very difficult to get a screwdriver (Phillips, or some better way to access the screw head?) in there and get it seated on the screw and to apply pressure to turn it. Also, which direction wud I turn in order to raise the back end of the door (to the right?). OR - maybe easier to lower the closing end of the door?

I think I have it settled down now to a smooth close. I believe the key for me was to raise the far end so I cud adjust it up a bit. It was a lot easier to do so once I had the wife gently hold the door pressure up just a tad. The door is actually not as heavy as U wud think! ;-)
