2013 36 CKTS....Hoosier cabinet

Anyone have a tip on adjusting the sliding garage door. We are having issues with the door staying in the up position.

I hope a Cedar Creek owner with your model can help you because I have no idea what sliding garage door you could be talking about. I also don’t understand what you mean by Hoosier cabinet in the title of your post.

BoatDude,
Welcome to the club. The door runs in a PVC track that is stapled to the rear of the cabinet face. There are many ways to add the needed tension to the door so it stays up. Here's a partial list;
...Stuff stuff in the track.
...Use a tiny spring clip on the track when the door is up. (Spring steel with little folding chrome handles) I use a white one so I can find it.
...Use a hair dryer to heat the track and bend the inner edge in.
...Install a spring pin in the track.
...Shim the side of the roller so there is more tension on the side of the door. I'm thinking about doing this one.
...Rig a tensioner wheel to the inside of the cabinet above the door. (Complicated and could leave a mark on the door face)

Oakman,
A Hoosier Cabinet was the early 1900's version of the "Swiss Army Knife" of kitchen furniture. Also noted was the fine typing in your response to BoatDude...LOL

OP stated it is the garage door he's having trouble with. I would imagine something like a garage door.

I've never seen a sliding GARAGE door mounted in plastic.

Maybe your confusion stems from a narrow definition of a GARAGE door.
Try this one: "a door that rotates on a horizontal axis and is supported horizontally when open Sometimes shortened to overhead"

So this engineering marvel is a horizontal
spindle with a sheet of wood slats glued to
a fabric backing and attached to the spindle. The assembly is supported on both sides with a moulded plastic end cap and track.
