OKay that's crazy. Now I know exactly where to look on ours too. Thanks for the pic. I'm pretty sure I have looked there but as I said, that's crazy man.

Yeah see that's exactly what I was thinking too I just didn't type it. I'm wondering if the edge of the ramp is even maybe bent or something??

A couple of four foot levels might answer that question, lower the ramp to level with the inside floor.

Have a helper hold one level from one side to the middle, you do the same from the other side are the levels the same height in the middle?

I was telling PolarisGuy that upon inspection of the inside of the "bumper" rail where the brackets of the door bolt to the bumper rail, that there are slotted holes for adjustment. But half of the nuts that were installed by the dealer or factory are cattywhompuss and crooked and halfway falling into the slotted holes since they didnt use washers........if any of that makes sense...

Like I said ill have to take more pictures tomorrow...I hope I can re-adjust/re-center it myself, put some washers on or maybe even some serrated flange nuts to keep them from sliding around in the slotted holes that they are bolted to and see if that holds.

Maybe my brain is just not working today but can you ellaborate on a bent frame rail...and how that would cause this? I cant picture what you are saying LOL

I edited the picture and turned it upright, added a couple doo-dads and an arrow to make my explanations easier and my head hurt less

The gap there is non existent on the other side. The door actually rubs the black metal frame of the door opening on that other side. When Giant RV "fixed" it...it seemed like they did as i mentioned above...re-centered the door and called it a day, fixing the gap (until our 2k mi round trip "unfixed" it) but reinstalled the ****-ass hardware with no washers....

pardon me...1,000 miles unfixed it, since when we arrived is when i found the gap again

You can check for bent door all by yourself with a piece of mason's dry line.... a Quickgrip or any clamp - pinch dry line to one edge of door and pull taught to other side... you will see any bowing right away... I would look front to rear, left to right and then in a X from corner to corner...

Aw perfect! Didn't even think about using dry line. I've got a roll in the garage!
Thanks!

Kind of hard to see the slotted holes but they're there and the nuts are somewhat inside them...I'm thinking a couple of serrated flange nuts will keep it held in place once re-centering it again

Stupid picture is upside down...
