While camping last month in 12 degree weather.. I noticed and big draft coming in from the lower half of the door... Upon looking closer I discovered that the doors lower half was not closing all the way. Almost like it was warped... Is there any trick I can do to get it back to straight? The hinges look OK.....

Thanks Lee

On my '00 KSDP, the top arm that keeps the door from opening too far was broken off when I got it and I never bothered to fix it. The problem was that when the door was opened too vigorusly by the wind or an over-anxious visitor, the ginges would be over-traveled. This bent them until the door would not close properly. They looked normal but weren't. Straightening the hinges fixed the air leak. If your top arm is working, bent hinges are very unlikely, so I would look for loose hinges first.

I took my top arm off... The way it was on there made the door real hard for my wife to open it. I think it put to much pressure on it when closed. and your right it could be one of the hinges got bent before I bought the coach...
