I adjusted mine to make the green guide wire tight, but NOT straining on the screws. This did the trick. Door slides in nice and easy as it did the first two years.

It was on my first camping trip this year that I noticed the door did not want to go in, and I ended up mounting it half-***ed.

If you have an older style, with the grease make sure the plate that contains the adjustment screw, does not come any closer than an 1/8 of an inch to the gear. Probably something similar to the new style too, if it uses a plate.

And I believe in the next few days, I will be ordering a manual lift and chucking the power winch

Newer style, according to my manual's diagram anyway since I haven't had time to take the cover off is just a 4mm hex head. Hopefully mine is the one with them on the top, some models have them on the bottom.

Just to update, super easy on the style winch I have. take off cover, 4mm allen wrench, 1 turn and done.

Read the manual though, the markings on the winch are counter intuitive, the one on the top with the arrow pointing up would seem correct right? Well NOPE, manual is correct, the bottom screw adjusts upper limit, top does the lower limit.
