Part Timer Door Problem

Part Timer, I have a Rockwood 1950 Pop-Up. You need to raise the top a bit more and the clips will go over the top of the door. I sometimes have to use my hand crank to get the top a bit higher. Yes, those slots are too small. And as others have said, level the camper using blocks under the wheels (for left to right), and the tongue crank (front to back) before putting the door in place. This will make fitting the door much easier. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply, Bourbonfan! I can see it now, those clips don't line up with the holes but should turn to lock the top in anyway... If anything, I may need to lower the roof to get the clips to catch? I'll give it a go! Thank you for the advice!

@Bourbonfan I lowered the roof slightly and then flexed the upper part of the door outward... and then I was able to get the door fully in place! It takes a fair amount of outward pressure to get it into those upper latches, but the door still closes fine once in place. Here is the updated upper door picture: https://imgur.com/a7jAdUP


Thanks again for helping me thru this!
