Windjammer bedroom/pocket door repair

I'm having a problem with the bedroom pocket door on my Winjammer. It seems like the track is damaged... The door will still move, but it takes a lot of effort. I've found other threads that talk about removing the "trim" to access the rollers and the track. Unfortunately, there's not any obvious trim on the door. The only trim is across the entire top of the bedroom wall. So, before I rip the camper apart-- is the wood trim across the bedroom wall what I need to remove to fix the door?



Thanks!

David

What about the trim on the other side of the door in the bathroom? if its smaller why not remove that first and have a look.

I'm going to take the plunge and pull the entire wall trim. That should give me access to the full pocket-door track... Hopefully I don't do too much damage in removing and replacing!

Before you pull the wall apart.....
Can you see the rollers at the top of the door ?
There should be a nut on a threaded bolt hanging down (?)
There are 2 nuts one is under the door bracket supporting the door...
the other is on top of the bracket.
With a thin 7/16" wrench , see photo, you should be able to access the nuts and then you can loosen the bottom one to adjust the top one.
Sounds like you need to raise the door, therefore you will have to raise the top nuts so you can bring up the bottom ones.
Try a few turns at a time, and you might have to put extra bend in the wrench to get into the tight space.
Be sure to tighten the bottom nuts or they will come loose and cause more problems.
Don't worry.. the bolt will not turn.

hope this helps
