Issues with door

Has anyone experienced issues with the door on their 23IKSS?
My 2015 Shamrock's door is not closing properly on the top portion of the door. I have about a 1/4 inch gap on top but the bottom portion closes fine.
I have the camper on my driveway and accurately leveled. It was not an issue during the PDI.

Before I start making calls and take it for repairs, I thought I would ask the real experts first.

things like this sometimes happen when the owner overtightens the corner stabilizers/jacks and bends the frame, causing door issues.
using these to level, is a big NO-NO!

I saw a trailer set up near a fireworks stand yesterday that looks like the tires are off the ground.
When I get done with my yard work I am going to go take a better look see.

if it has a strut that opens the door check the door frame and see if it coming loose. we just went through that with our 2109s. The whole door and frame was replaced on ours.

Which door? Screen or out side door? I had to adjust (bend) both of mine to fit better and close. Also had to adjust the latches. Looks like the hinges are just 1/8 aluminum.

Door Issues

I just brought mine home last Friday and I'm having the same issues with the door. It seems to stick depending on how many people are in the camper. I adjusted the leveling jacks and it goes away until people have gone in and out a few times then it happens again. I never noticed any problem during the dealer walk thru.

Weird, I just noticed this also on my 233s. The top corner of the screen door is sticking and now there is a small gap. Hm, will have to check the jacks tomorrow.

Just bought a 2015 23ss and the door is not a rectangle, the bottom opening is 25.5 inches and the top is 26.25 inches. The screen door doesn't cover the opening and bare metal is now showing at the top of the door frame. Also, when the door opens it slams into the awning brace. Ive called the dealer in mid Ohio and seem to be getting no where with a repair schedule. Plus, my slide out blows fuses every time we use it. Love our Roo, but want it fixed!
