Rich.

Slicone spray, silicone spray and more silicone spray.

And in a few days, do it again and again.

Eventually, your door hinge will become quite again.

how old is the coach? Have you checked the floor around the door opening for rot?

Our 1959 was dificult and the door had to be slammed ot latch. Floor was rotten and it cause some stress on the body on the hinge side. Once the floor ware replaced the door closes easily.

Andy is right; silicone spray is the best solution before you need to make repairs from forcing the door. That will only lead to more traumatic problems. It would be a good idea to check on the flooring as well to see if you have a structural shift?

Good luck!
