Door is warped and weather stripping is rotten
 
I have a 77’ Argosy 20’.

The door is slightly warped and doesn’t seal 100%. Has anyone encountered this problem? How did you fix it? Also, what have you used for weather stripping on your door?

There are many threads on the subject of re arching the door.
There are You Tube videos as well.

Thank you
 
Thnx Twinkie. I’ve searched for these posts and can’t find any. I have used the words “warped, bend, bent, rearching and weather stripping” and can’t find anything on the topic of molding the door back to its original shaped. This is the main entry door btw, I didn’t specify. For those who chime in later

Just type how to straighten an Airstream door in to Google.

If you are on a computer/laptop using the desktop version of this site, the new search function in the blue box above works great. The search function in the AF App apparently does not work as well. You can also use a general Google search and add the search term "site:airforums.com" to the search request.

"straighten door" -- https://www.google.com/search?q=stra...=airforums.com
"bent door" -- https://www.google.com/search?q=bent...=airforums.com

Go to time stamp 7:00 here for the main door:

Good luck,

Here's a link to the gasket for a 77.

Make sure to clean the surface well.
