Entry Door doesn't open flat

Hello! I have a sun seeker 3250. I was shocked that it appears that the entry door does not open flat against the RV. Could this be true? If not, can someone talk me through how to open it flat against the RV. If it is true, is there a way to change the hinges so it will open flat? Thanks!

Thanks. Have owned or rented three different ones over 15 years and they always flush opened and locked to the chassis. Maybe others know on this particular RV. Thanks.

Our 2015 Flagstaff had a gas strut that would pop the door open and hold it (sort of) at 90 degrees. I removed the strut and put in a regular door stopper/holder.

our new 2018 KZ TH opens 3/4 of the way and smacks the awning if it is deployed.
