Hi all,
After searching you tube for about an hour decided this might be best place to ask...
Full timer here going into fifth year...Single older woman so this is a DIY project.
How the heck do I get the shower doors off???
I have the 20011 Jayco RTLS 351 I think that is it...
it is corner shower with round sliding glass doors the track is nearly impossible to keep clan and at this point I m think I would like to remove and just have a shower curtain...
Any Help???

Maybe find out who made the door and someone who is familiar with that product. Pictures?

Their might also be a way to partially disassembly the frame to remove the door.

Or other cleaning methods including sprays, brushes like tooth brushes etc?

I would use a vacuum and a brush to clean the tracks. My first camper had a curtain. It had a tendency to suck in against you when you were showering.

Most sliding doors have adjustment screws top and bottom near the rollers. By loosening the screws you should gain enough space to take the door out.

We removed the glass shower doors in our 2019 Vilano 320 and put an articulating rod and curtain in it's place; best mod (of many) we've made. More room when you're in the shower, more room in bathroom when you're not, no cleaning glass doors, and no *trying* to clean the track.

Not sure how it would work with a corner shower though. Recommend you search out a manufacturer specific forum and see if others have done this.

I found this on rvforums.com

If they are like the curved shower doors in our MADP, there are two plastic guides at the bottom of the door, one at each end. They are removed by taking out a screw on each one. Without the guides in place, the doors lift up and off the track, then pull out. Reverse the procedure to re-install.

The center half of my glass enclosure was four glass panels that rolled. The design was easy enough to clean but I got tired of drying off all those glass sections so I replaced them with a curtain. I cut acrylic blocks to fit the track where the roller were to attach the curtain to. The curtain needed to be cut down narrower and shorter and I had my wifey sew a wide hem at the bottom so I could slide in weights. This is the third time I’ve replaced PITA doors with curtains and they are much better. Craig
