Shower Door Rollers

2017 Forester 3171 DS
We have a shower door with rollers that have a tendency to rotate. The rollers are supposed to have a "clip" the keeps the roller straight and not twist when the door is opened and closed.
I can't find the door or rollers online anywhere and no decals on the door or frame to indicate who made it. I did find an picture from an eBay listing that had long since expired.
I am going to CW as they originally sold the motorhome, but I am not confident that they will find the door manufacturer. Of course, they won't tell me the company and if they do manage to find what I need, I will have to pay shipping twice as drop shipments aren't their forte.
Two pictures are attached, one with the roller clip circled in red and the roller on the door opening side without the clip

while not 100% sure in your case, but numerous manufacturers use Shower Enclosures of America as their supplier for shower enclosures and such. Visit
Shower Enclosures of America, Inc. and email them or call them. They will probably need pictures like you have in your post. They have been helpful many times. Even for bottom door sweeps and the like.

Did you ever find the proper roller for your door? Ours is also having the same problem now. We need a replacement. As you said, hard to find.

Shower door roller lock

I went to CW and they contacted the "manufacturer", not sure who that was. They found the roller locks and I picked up about 6 of them a week later. CW was most helpful on my issues with this MH.
I purchased this MH used in the secondary market, CW had sold it in the first place, that is why I am using them. No regrets on that issue.
Good luck on the shower door

These are the same clip/roller locks that are in the first thread picture. I was missing these in all rollers and CW got them for me.

Oh, I see now what youíre showing in the second picture. What happened to our shower door was that the white nylon roller itself broke in half. So we are ordering the whole assembly. Thanks for your reply.

Shower Door Rollers

On my 2014 3170 the shower door has never had the clips. The door always worked. Now it is sticking as it makes the curve. Cleaning and lubrication helped. I am assuming you guys are speaking of a shower door that follows a curved track.
With all said, following this thread.

That is correct. The curve track was giving us problems and then we found that one of the rollers, a white wheel was broken. Parts are on the way from Camping World. I just hope they send the right ones this time. They sold us the wrong ones a week ago so we had to return and do a special order.

So, you do not have the clips, correct? When you get the rollers and they work, can you post any info, pnís, etc. Thank you.
