Screen Door Alignment

I just picked up my Tracer 3150 from storage this afternoon and when I opened the rear exterier door to the rest room, the screen remained closed. I thought that was odd, but upon further investigation, I noticed that the middle of the screen door is catching the door frame. All the other doors and hinged kitched doors open fine, its just the screen door with the issue.

Can these sccreen doors be adjusted? The screws on the hinge were nice and tight already, so this was concerning to me. The exterior door opens and closes fine, no rubbing. So, any tips you can provide would be helpful.

Thanks, Joe

The screen doors on these units are pretty flimsy at best !
If trailer is twisted from sitting weird on not a level surface this may do it .
You may try lifting screen a little to get it to open .
Once open and trailer is level you may have to pick up on screen to straighten if its bent .
My last tt if the camper was slightly "tweaked" from un level ground it would in fact rub.

You say it is hitting on the middle of the screen, if you are real handy, you can put a wedge in the middle to get the gap the same from top to bottom and then remove the welt that holds the screen wire in and pull the screenwire a little and then reinstall the welt. You might have to bow it slightly to increase the gap where it was rubbing.

Common issue for me as well. The doors on my 3150 are tough to open close so I am always tweaking the catches on the door frame to provide a little better gap and lubing the plunger so it slides easier. Sometimes my wife and kids cant even get in the trailer...

...sometimes that is ok
