Entrance door won't close all the way

Ok folks, had our rig for about a year and a half and have camped a lot in it already. But I find the last couple of days when closing the entrance door it's either hard to close or I see it not closed at the top of the door jam. Even tried to re-level and now sometimes it closes ok and next time it won't. I can see where it has been scraping at the top of the door jam as well. Any ideas? We're down in Florida for the winter now and won't be moving the rig until April.

Make sure your steps are adjusted correctly. The bottom of the door may be catching on the step plate if they are not adjusted to fit down in the entry door. This all assume you have the MorRyde steps.

If I read this correctly if the door was lowered about an eight of an inch the problem would be fixed.
This can be done. Knock a hinge pin out and take the hinge off of the door. The hinge is letís say a z bracket with a hole through one end for the hinge pin. On the end with the hole machine an eighth of an inch off of the bottom and re install. Do this for all three. This win allow the door to fall an eighth of an inch and relive the binding.
