I once had a car with similar closure issues..A friend told me.. "If you wouldn't have paid so much, the door would already be broken in!"

Peace and Blessings..

I use silicone grease about once a month to keep my door working easily. I smear it on the edge of door gaskets and dab the latches and dead bolt, open and close a few times and wipe off excess. Makes all the difference in the world but does attract a bit of dust. I'd rather be aware of not rubbing my clothes on the edge of the door than have to slam!

Over tightening the stabilizers. Does it to me every time! It's my understanding that over tightening them causes flex in the frame, which causes flex in your shell, which causes the door to not close properly.

I originally set the bubble on the jack parked on a dead level pad with a 6" torpedo level inside the refer but later transitioned to the front door for visibility.

After cooking the first breakfast, I reset the bubble with the level in a frying pan on the stove and called it good. I've not had any refer issues.

As for stabs, I crank them down until all the arm/plate play is gone, then an additional 1/4 turn on the speed wrench.
