2021 THOR ACE - How to adjust hanging sliding door

Does anyone have any idea how to adjust the pocket door on a 2021 THOR ACE 33.1 (or any similar model sliding pocket door)?

My bathroom sliding door (similar to our bathroom pocket door) has developed a slight gap from our recent 5K mile trip. The first picture is me pushing the door to make it sit “flush” to the frame/wall. The second picture is how it currently sit in “locked” position.

Does anyone know how to adjust it to make it sit flushed again? Thanks.

Doesn't the door have a floor guide? Check and see if it's improperly mounted on the floor allowing the door to get on the outside of the guide.

They don’t have a floor guide. Adjustment is done from top.

Get on a step stool and look at the top of the door.
You will see it hangs from two cars.
Each car has a release slide/lock if you want to remove the door.
The slide/lock captures a threaded hanging rod with a lock nut on it.
Loosen the lock nut and twist the threaded rod to raise or lower that side of the door.
Changing a single rod length changes the angle the door hangs so you can close your gap.
But look carefully at the hardware and see if you can determine WHY you have to adjust the door now. Has the track or car or something on the door come loose?

Thanks for the response 16ACE27. The bottom plastic guide fell off during the road trip. My wife found the plastic guide on the floor. I re-screwed it to the bottom of wall. My guess was the door was hanging loose and the movement, may have caused the gap. I found this tool from Amazon. Will be ordering it so I dont have to remove the cover panel of the track.
