Entry Door Issue

2015 28 DS

Entry door not set right and takes a lot of force to close, especially from the inside. One day I will rip off the whole handle assembly from inside so much force I have to use to slam it.

The door hits frame on the bottom first, but basically the whole frame. It is not just the two screws on the bottom...

DW would like me to take care of this before any more mods are done so please help....

Take square to the opening corners and check that first. Just to see how far out it is

Actually,

I just took off the HIGH pressure gas door strut, and that was the issue. So much pressure on that p.o.s. it mangled the whole door out of wack.

Any low pressure strut I can replace it with???

No help here. I have not been down that path. I suspect you will have to research the specs if you find any. Factory must have used stronger than required part. That in itself is a shocker.

Gas Springs Standards

Here you can see that the SE200P comes in as 'low' as 20lbs, which would be AMPLE already.

Actually ideally I would reverse, and install a door swing CLOSER with temperatures in SFLA 90F+ most of the yr.

On a similar note does anyone deal with an annoying loud sqeak emanating from the door area? We have pushed and pulled and wiggled parts to locate the source without luck.

Thats insane. Did you get your RV second hand or was it like that from the factory.

This is the one we have (10 lb) and it works just fine along with my door stopper string on the top of the frame. I bet your going to have to go back to the gym after you change out your shock. No more beach bod for you!

KansasFR3, if your're replying to my door squeak problem, we did buy it used but only 3000 miles on it. We are going to explore possibility that the retracted steps could be the source of our consternation.
