Dometic door not closing

I have a 1976 Argosy 24 that has a Dometic RM77D 2 door frig. The frig works fine but the bottom of the door has swelled and will not close. Has anyone run into this problem and is there a fix? I cannot find a replacement door anywhere.

I had that problem on a 69.. It seems the foam insulation in the door swells over time and pushes out the plastic inner door. It can be enough to break it. I removed the inner panel and used a wood rasp to remove a little bit of the foam and then re assembled the door and it seemed to take care of it.
