Help Please - Door will not close

We have a 2015 27FB FC that for some reason as of this morning the door will not close without really slamming hard. Always took a decent push but now doesnít want to close. Any ideas of what could be wrong & what I need to do?

Thanks,

Glenn

Frame twisted a little?
Silicone on the latch might help too.

Hi, ease up on the stabilizers. I touch the ground and another half turn on hard surfaces [concrete or pavement] and a full turn on soft surfaces. [grass, dirt, gravel Etc.]

Never mind - I figured it out - just being stupid. Had all stabilizer jacks out firmly and then this morning decided to raise the front with the electric jack just a little - but enough to cause it to bind.

Glad you found the solution. It is very easy to torque an Airstream. I am a bit lighter on the stabilizers than Bob, but even then the door could stick sometimes. Sometimes the latch is the problem and I had to take it apart several times and clean it up and re-grease it.
