Entrance Door Rubs At Bottom..

Just bought a 2004 Meridian 34H last week. The front door sticks and I noticed that it is scrape marks on the entrance sill.

Is there away to adjust the door to bring it up?...

Thanks LeeB

My mom's 1992 DP had a similar problem. Her coach is framed with wood, not too uncommon, including the door. I could lift the latch side of the door about 3/4 inch; the inner framing was loose. So, I drank alot, and figured I could build a support for it. I used a piece of sheet metal the same width of the door and about a foot tall; a kick plate. I predrilled the sides and bottom, then I lifted the door into position, and supported it with a screw type jack from my car. Then I ran some self tapping screws thru the kick plate, thru the door skin, and into the wood framing of the door; on the sides and bottom of the kick plate. I took the jack out and the kick plate now holds the door square. BOOM!

Your door hinges screws may be loose. I had the same issue on mine and found over time screws loosen up. Put door back in place and tighten them up. I was thinking about putting locktight on them.

I had a similar issue on a motorhome. All of the screws were tight. I lifted the door on its hinges and pressed in c-clips of appropriate size onto the hinge pin between the door and RV portions of the hinge. A couple of clips on each hinge was enough to lift the door and keep it from dragging.

Not my idea, but I think it is a good one.

Basic question. Does the door stick/bind with jacks down and leveled? Ours may hang up a bit at the screen door latch in some "off level" conditions.

Just bought the coach and have not had a chance to lower the jacks...
