Bathroom Door Not Aligned

Has anyone just taken possession of a new 2016 where the bathroom door is not aligned? Could be problems internally down the road as a result?

Our door jam looks normal, but the door fits caddy-wompus in it... more specifically, the space between the door and the jam at the bottom of the door opening has more space between them then the top of the door. Every door we have seen is aligned so that there is equal space between the door and the door itself all the way from the top to bottom of the door and jam.

Dealer rep said that this is normal because as the longer trailers adjust more during road trips, they need to adjust. I get what he is saying, but at the same time my "bullshattony meter" is tacked out. Yeah, right

Least of my worries, but has anyone had alignment issues with their bathroom doors?

Yep mine is not aligned correctly as well. Big crooked gap on top. Par for course, and BS on dealer story.

May be as simple as the rig is racked as it's parked. Which will effect doors differently depending on where they are located in the rig. It can also happen if you don't level properly when setting up. Or it could be they didn't hang it correctly. Do some measuring and see if the opening is square.

We will have a chance to see it perfectly level at the dealer tomorrow.

Just wondering if others have this issue at PDI.

Actually, not sure how to deal with this. Never had a mis-aligned interior door in a new rv door before

Have you taken it in for warranty to correct the alignment? If so, what did 'they' say?

Yes, mine is mis-aligned and does not latch. I never bothered taking it in to the dealer. Just the wife and I in the camper, so we don't worry too much about it. Maybe when I have nothing better to do I will fix it.

I did not take it in for warranty yet. Not a big deal to me. Maybe I will fix it myself, don't really trust the service guys.

We just took delivery of a new 30' Starcraft last Saturday (2017 model) and the door was hung properly. Not thrilled with the large gap at the bottom, but everything was straight and tight. Figured the bottom gap was to allow for uneven sites.
