problem with entry door 0n 8285 Rockwood

The entry door on our 8285 5th wheel is warped at the top opposite the hinge. Does anyone know what we can do to repair this ourselves?

We had a the same experience on our 8280WS...The bottom of the door was out about 1/4". I put a length of 2 x 4 across the door opening at the top corner and applied pressure to the bottom corner of the door. Took a bit of work, but managed to straighten the door. If you were to take it to a dealer, I'd imagine that they would try the same thing before looking at replacing it.
