Rear compartment door problem '94 34 footer

I have a 1994 34 footer with rear queen bed and single storage compartment in the rear. As you can see from the photos the door which has a single lock does not fit flat against the gasket and one end projects slightly outward which could lead to a leaking issue.

I am wondering how to correct the problem. I thought about putting in another set of locks on each end perhaps to help it seat flat. Or perhaps can the door be bent slightly to fit better.

Any help or information would be greatly appreciated.

My '91 will do the same thing sometimes. I simply need to press the door closed further, compressing the gasket, then close the latch. There is a false lock position where the latch twists before the door is not fully closed.

Ours is doing the same thing on all our doors...water tends to leak in when washing or heavy rain...was looking for some sort of rubber to put on outer door to make fit tighter and seal area up more...what did you do?

Try bending the doors carefully. Put a small block of wood near the center, much like you would do to adjust the main door, then bend carefully until it fits better.
