High wall door trim

It seems that the door on my hard side high wall falls through the door opening when traveling causing the door trim to bend on the latch side towards the bottom of the top door. Looking for a way to prevent this from happening. Any ideas or experience with this problem?

That's kinda hard to imagine. There should be a ~1/2" flange around the door.

Can you post a photo?

Sorry the photo is sideways. Shows where I have straightened the door flange.

I'd bet big $ that the piano hinge that connects the upper triangle wall to the lower wall has come loose. Not uncommon.

Been there, done that.

I already tried that as well as checking the screws on the door hinges. The piano hinge screws are tight and I replaced the screws that were loose on the door hinges with pop rivets. I am thinking about adding an extension/reinforcement on the door flange. (I always tighten all accessible screws before the season begins and use wooden toothpicks and time bond white glue to fix any stripped holes.)

Well i guess i lost big $. That's why I dont gamble.

I have no idea what could be the issue.

Sorry.

Is your front wall separating from the cabinets? This would enlarge the door opening. It's a tragic but common problem with some HW campers.
If that's the case, your door is "too small" for the now stretched opening, and on the road flexing will open and close the gap, thus crunching your travel door.

HW door issue

Have same issue. Resolved it by folding a dish towel a couple times over then placing it between the door and jam after I take down the sides. Have never had a problem since doing this.
