Hw296 door?

When I go to install the door there is a gap at the top I have to force the closures on it. After tearing down yesterday I noticed one has stripped out. What to do to fix the problem?

The gap could be caused by it not being level and the roof is leaning away from the door. The strip out can be repaired by using a plastic anchor and some really good adhesive. Could also be "overuse" of the stabilizer jacks.

I usually left the top ones loose anyways cause when you let out the awing it will shift the roof away from the door anyways

If I leave the top loose it leaves a big gap.

That fine. In the summer, it lets out excessive heat and in winter you can run a buddy heater and have adiquit ventilation!
