The level on the tongue showed it being off a bit, so im guessing that was my issue.
Ok, I spoke too soon, so I have to respond to my own post. My door frame is now very tight on the side closest to the bunk. The swivel towards the middle of the frame is so tight, it feels like its going to snap off any second. Also, from the inside of the camper, you can see an opening as if the door is slightly buckling out. At the top, the vertical slots in the screen door serve no purpose. They do not come close to matching up with the swivel locks which are just above. I use those to swivel lock the top of the screen door itself.
I have slightly adjusted the scissor jack underneath the door as well as the tongue jack. I don't want to do anything too dramatic since I am already set up.
I have watched the Forest River set up video with the lady who does everything so easily with a smile, but that didn't do me any good. Her swivel locks at the top secure the screen door from the side, not the top like mine.
Oh well, next time I set up, I will take some extra time until I fine tune it.
