Entry door flapping while driving

Anyone else have this issue? The top and bottom of the door flap pretty bad. It's really noisy and looks a little dangerous. I didn't notice it until recently. Is there any type of adjustment that can be made? Could something have gotten tweaked driving down the road or possibly when leveling?

Larson-can you get a couple of pictures of top and bottom when the door is closed? Your problem sounds like you might need to tighten / adjust your entry door locking mechanism.

Normally those doors are cambered to prevent that (or at least try to). Are any windows open? Normally its pressure inside the coach that would cause that.

No windows open on the inside. I checked the door seals also. I do have both ACs running while I'm driving down the road if that matters. I tried to take a video but this forum won't allow you to upload videos. You can push in on the bottom of the door from the outside and it pushes in about a half an inch before it stops. At 65 it's annoying, at 78 it sounds like we're getting ready for takeoff.

Definitely looks like that door needs some adjustment. Should not be sticking that far out.
