Rattling Shower Doors

I am wondering what people do to stop their shower doors from Rattling when driving?
By far the noisiest thing in our motor home when travelling is the glass shower doors.
I've tried a few different things from sponges to towels but nothing seems to really stop the rattle.
Any suggestions?
I have a 2008, Jayco, Melbourne, 29D.
Thank You!

We travel with the shower door locked open and have not noticed any rattling of the shower door in our Greyhawk.

I had this issue, as well as the doors being hard to open at times. While we were in Yellowstone last week I decided to see what was going on with them. It turns out, the screws for the wheels were very loose on mine, and not adjusted well at all, I snugged them up, and locked the door closed during travel. They work smoothly, and there is no vibration on the road... Not to find all the other rattling items!

Rattling Shower Doors

Thankyou for the help everyone!
I'm going to check the wheels and maybe find a way to lock them tighter in the open position.

One thing that I've found on the shower doors on my 31FK is that the handle on the shower doors are NOT very stable. Use the handle with only light pressure to open or close the door. If you lean the least bit on the handle it will come loose from the shower door. It does not reattach very easily or firmly.

Reattach glass shower door handle

We have a 2011 grey hawk that we bought used last year. The shower door handle bar is on the door, but not tight so it slides down to the bottom of the door. We have a piece of wood in the trAck in order to keep the door from moving while driving. Is there anyway to reattach the handle bar?
Thanks,

Mandy

I have a 2012 GH 31FS and have replaced a few of the rollers that have blown apart and lost their bearings. This was causing some rattling, but not much. We normally travel with the shower door shut and bathroom door shut and do not hear much noise.

I replaced the shower door with this Extend-A-Shower Expanding Shower Rod - White Finish - Stromberg Carlson EXT-35-42 - Shower - Camping World

Not for the noise but the door kept jamming in it's track and the extend a shower gives you more room. Don't miss the door.
