We had our door replaced on warranty and the new one is finally starting to do the same thing. I am going to get rid of the friction hinges as that is the issue. The door is made of styrafoam that is sandwiched between the fiberglass and then glued around the edges and slid into an aluminum frame. The stiff hinges end up breaking down the door so it separates from the frame causing the frame to distort over time and start rubbing on the outer frame. The ready rod inserts to hold the door frame together may be the answer but have not tried yet
Good evening Shane, I just purchased a 2015 36RL from a private owner that my wife and I plan to tow around Arizona. My question centers on a post I think I saw where you had some difficulties with the entrance door. I unfortunately did not discover this problem until this morning after purchasing the rig yesterday. The upper right corner catches the both the trim and frame and forces me to push hard to close the rig. I also notice movement of the right side gel laminate with the stiff door appearing to exacerbate the problem. I read n a trouble shooting document (not part of the forum) that you can use a wrapped 2x4 on both upper door frame sides with another 2x4 serving as a cross brace to push the upper frame out slightly to clear this problem. I certainly do not want to do that without more extensive research. I would appreciate any insight you may have to share with my 75 year old brain. Other then this, we really love the Redwood in so many ways. Thank you, Jack
