Bedroom sliding door issue

Towed my Wildwood back to my house today to pack for a trip. Checked it at the yard, and it was fine. When I got inside after getting it home, both the sliding doors on the master bedroom were closed, the molding with the snap that the door attaches to to keep it open had been torn off the wall on both sides, and one door was half off the sliding track attached to the ceiling. Apparently the plastic clip that holds the door onto the mount that glides on the track has broken. Lucky for me there was no other damage to the walls, or the entertainment center. I'll ask the forum, where can I source the parts for the sliding doors? I've got a call into the dealer but I want to check in other places to see if there are better options out there to secure the doors to the track.

Sliding doors off tracks

On the 29HFS, what is the easiest way to remove the sliding doors? Roller came off track during move from dealer to house, 2 hours away. Any suggestions on repairing the door and/or how to remove and repair?

There is a swing out clip that holds the roller to the door. These clips are usually plastic and can break quite easily. They have a metal alternative that seems to hold up. Picture above is an example of such a roller clip.

Door Hardware

I just purchased components from JohnsonHardware.com, take that back you can get Johnson hardware components at Menards rather than ordering online.

I couldn't get it from Johnson without paying an arm and leg with customs and exchange. I got lucky checking out fraserway rv.

Ordered the parts from Johnsonhardware.com

I ordered 4 of the brackets and am switching out all 4. The brackets I bought have metal clips, not plastic. I figure switching out all 4 protects me from this happening again. Thanks for pointing me in the direction of that website. I don't have a menards around me, and my Home Depot didn't have equivalent parts in stock.

Seems many are modifying or upgrading the sliding doors in our units. The change I made worked great and much nicer than the swing door taking up space. Glad I could help with the website location for some of you. Safe travels.
