Bent door help!

Our door flew open on the way to our campground. It needs adjustment on the top and bottom. Also screen door needs adjustment. What shops in the South would anyone recommend?

Thanks, BadKat

There's a u-tube video on how to adjust your door. Takes a piece of wood, and some guts to do. We have and continue to tweak our door with this method. When we reskinned our door a couple of months ago, we used ratchet straps to recurve the door, on the advice of a friend here on the forums. Worked well.

Happy results! Silver Moose said use a block of wood and have someone push on top and one on bottom of door. Oh my, no daylight on Top or Bottom. We will bring it to an AS rv repair soon but feel much safer til we get our Moose Lock which I will never travel without! Lesson learned.

Foley's Airstream!

We are full-timers and have been to many rv repair shops over time. There is nothing like the incredible service at Foley's in Gulfport MS.

They fixed our door hinges and we will be back this month for a new water supply box. Our door hinges were in seriously bad shape.

I second the comment on Foley RV Center and Airstream of Mississippi (https://www.foleyrvcenter.com/). They do great work, and are pleasant folks.

When we get back to Foley for the water compartment replacement we have another door problem. It appears numerous small rivets have busted out on the inside. Just another bump in the road.
