Side door issue

Hi Everyone,

I have a 2014 Zinger 30KB, which we recently purchased. Been out 1 time so far and heading out for the long weekend. I noticed the main door is rubbing on the top right hand side of the door frame (standing inside the camper) The opposite side of the hinges. The metal edge of the door is slightly rubbing on the frame. I hope this makes sense. The door still closes and doesn't seem to be a real issues right now, but I was wondering if this is something someone has seen before. The camper is stored in my driveway on a slight decline. The camper is not level due to the slope of it. I don't think this has anything to do with it, but I just wanted to ensure I put all the info in this post. It doesn't look like the door can be adjusted unless one of the hinges is slightly off, causing this??

Thanks

I think once you get it leveled up you will find the door will be OK.
The frames tend to twist when not level.

Level side to side then front to back. If you put too much torque on your stabilizers you can twist the frame and cause this.

Yeah, I think you'll find that it "straightens" itself out once you get the trailer level. The interior doors will often do the same thing when you are off level.

Yes...once I noticed that my bathroom door was not staying shut and outside kitchen door was catching. Leveled it and everything was fine.

Well after the trailer being on a level surface for a time the side door did not straighten out. I bought it back to the dealer and they re-aligned the door and the screen door. It was covered under the factory warranty, no cost out of my pocket. The door and the screen door finally shuts with out slamming it.

Good Deal! We are having dealer look at our bunk door - drags on frame at bottom.
