Bath door out of square.

Our Jayfeather 222 has been parked at the storage lot for several months now. Sitting on the tires, pretty level side to side, and a little high in the front for roof drainage.
Went down today to check things out, and found the bath room door will not close. It is hitting at the top about 1/8".
I have never seen this happen before in any of my units.
Ideas, thoughts etc. appreciated.

That is strange, I would wait until spring and see what happens. It could be because it is not level...Is there any snow on the roof that could be anohter issue.

My question too. It takes very little tension on one of the corners to make get out of square. On my previous 26BH if I tightened either of the rear stab jacks the rear bath door would lose square and not close.

If you have a jack town down, it wouldn't take much settling to create your issue.

No jacks down. I have thought about going down and turning the heat on for a while. I may go down and take some pictures, and send to Jayco.
Thanks for all the replies. Jim

might not be your camper at all. Might be the ground itself has changed some.
EXAMPLE: I live in a mobile home. Of course I never get under the skirting and "re-level" my house. But every winter, my refrigerator door will not shut without an extra push, and my bathroom door will not stay open. In the summer, those 2 doors mention do the opposite

When the RV is out of square the door will not fit right... I can always tell how well I have leveled my RV by how the door to the shower opens.

More than likely Its just because of the unlevelness of the ground that your 4 tires are resting on. After seeing your floor plan I bet if you took a piece of 2x6 and put it under your right front tire (that's if your looking at your trailer head on.) It would probably fix the problem. Or lower that front right jack and see if it helps.
