Just took delivery of an '07 LE -- which is "so far so good". We've noticed the very sturdy screen door has begun to catch a bit at the bottom edge -- perhaps b/c one tends to pull "down" on it when opening it. There seem to be lots of places to "adjust" the angle of the door -- but we're not sure exactly where to do that. Has anyone mastered that art? Thx!

Hi.
Dang been a while since I posted here. but anyway.

On the hinge of the screen door the inside edge there should be some screws. with some help from another person loosen just enough to slightly move the door and make your adjustments. It is kinda tight in there so if you have a small screwdriver that would be great.

I really dont remember how many there are or what kind of head are on them. but I do remember how to adjust them. I did a few of them in my time at WRV.

By your avatar (pic under your screen name) looks like your coach is in station 6 which would be where they install the slide outs, retracable front bumper and what a coinsidence the front door.

We have had the same problem on our 2000. I just reach down on the outside bottom edge and pull up a bit. Fixes it for us. That may not be the bast fix for a '07.

We also had this problem and the hinge adjustments looked like they were already at the end of their adjustment groove. Then we noticed that the problem was actually that the rubber gasket around the screen door was pulling down and catching at the lower corner. A screw placed at the upper corner of the gasket to hold it up fixed the problem.
