Door rubbing and difficult to open/close
3 Attachment(s)

This is my first TT and my door is pretty difficult to open and close. I took some pictures to show where it is rubbing. Both the screen and outside doors are hitting the strike plate. Wondering what the best option is?

Is this something that would be addressed under warranty?
Is there a different strike plate I can install that is more flush?
Should I just beat it with a hammer until it clears?

Thanks for the advice!

Does it do it with your stabilizers down? If so, back off on them a little

That did the trick. Thank you very much!

No problem, we've all been there. Should only be enough weight on the stabs to take SOME of the bounce out.

I have a similar problem and tried taking pressure off the stabs but it didn't change anything. I had to have my doors changed because some little darlings broke into our trailer while in storage. The forward door works fine but the rear door is hitting on the door frame. It wasn't when I picked it up.
