Shower door rollers

2019 windsport 34r. Curved shower door. Appears I need a new roller as one keeps sticking as it goes around the curve preventing door from fully opening/closing. Anyone had similar problem? Know source for rollers? No spec sheet for shower or door in Thor database.
I have contacted Thor and waiting on their reply but figured someone must have had same problem. Thanks in advance

Call Thor or send them email. They can give you part number to search, or at local dealer.

Just a long shot, but you might try some silicone spray. Maybe someone has a better idea?

You might try contacting a shower door shop in your area to look at it. They may be able to help you out and order what is needed?

I am with Mr. Sunshine. Try silicone spray in the track. It might solve all your problems

Ours was doing the same thing.
After a little research with a screwdriver I found 1 loose screw on the track, the roller was hitting it

Let us know how it's going.

I have a 2018 Thor Windsport 29m. I did not like those glass doors AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had a curved shower curtain with the plastic curtain that folds up. I LOVE IT; it gives me more room at the top cause I'm 6'6" and wide. Very easy to clean and when they get a little dingy at the bottom, just order a new one. The first one lasted 3 years. Bob

to all who responded, thanks for comments and suggestions. I was able to fix the problem--here's the story. I contacted: Thor customer service but they didn't have all data I wanted, so then called Thor parts dept. They gave me the contact info for the door manufacturer and appropriate part #. (I think the Parts dept has all the info on all the components that go into each RV tracked by VIN). The shower door company had been bought/name changed so it took a couple calls. But once I got hold of the right company/person they were very helpful. Sent me the door installation instructions/diagrams so I could verify proper installation. They also sent me a kit (free) with plastic clips that attach to the roller axle and go inside the track to assist in guiding the roller around the curve. (they sent the first batch by US Postal service which never got delivered to me and then sent a second set up UPS which did get delivered--no cost to me). While waiting I also removed the door and cleaned all the soap scum etc from the roller (fix everything at one time) then reinstalled the door and then attached the guide clips. Now the door works perfectly--no hang up at all. And I have some extra clips "just in case". Entire effort took a couple phone calls, some patience and waiting for replies but once I had everything in hand the actual fix took about 1 1/2 minutes (less than typing this reply)! Bottomline: if you have similar problem contact the Parts Department, get the manufacturer contact info AND the part number. Then contact manufacturer for assistance.

Thanks for returning to the thread with a very thorough update on your fix. This is what makes threads the most useful for others with similar problems.
