Bathroom door sticking in 32BHDS

Hey everyone, I wonder if anyone out there has had any trouble with the rear door on their TT. The issue we are having is that the bottom of the door has a rubber guide on it. This guide hits the threshold of the doorjam and holds the bottom of the door open a few 10ths of an inch. Also, the deadbolt on the door does not line up with the strike-plate very well. It is a fight to get the deadbolt set at night. I have tried adjusting the strikeplate down, and the jam down. I really need to adjust the hinges (based on experience being a carpenter and adjusting stick-home doors), just not sure how to do it.

I would rather try to adjust/fix this myself, but if I need to I will take it to the dealer, I am sure the warranty will cover it. Just dont want it to be out of commission for however long the dealer takes on it. Any help or insight you guys have is greatly appreciated!

Have not had that problem on my 32BHDS, but did on my coachmen. I adjusted the stick plate a little and the dead bolt then lined up fine.

I have a feeling that your trouble is the door and not the frame. I had the same problem on my old 5ver. open the door and lift on the bottom of the handle side of the door. it should lift and square up the door. then close and check for fit. if that does the trick what i did was screwed 2 1/8x3/4 flatbar aluminum on about a 20 degree angle to hold door square. looks factory when finished.

Have had to adjust screen door, screen latch and exterior latches on the storage compartments. Sounds like youv got it under control. Good luck

Thanks for the suggestions guys. As soon as it stops raining out (probably 2-3 days) I will try lifting the door to see if I can get it to line up.

Are your stabilizers a little too engaged? Before I knew better , I had tried to level the trailer (31BHDS) with the stabilizers. I had it so twisted up that the bathroom door wouldn't close at all.

Lift all your stabilizers up and see how it all lines up then.
