Coach flexing? Bathroom door not square...

I woke up this morning and our bathroom door would not close. It was at least 1/2" off square at the top. We are full timers with the auto leveling hydraulic jacks down. It's a 2009 Fleetwood Discovery. Anyone ever experienced this before?

Auto level use on unleveled pad will twist your chassis frame causing all kinds of problems including popped windshields.
This is not your MFG but parts of thread may apply.

Thanks for the response. What's puzzling is its been fine for 6 weeks, then all of a sudden wake up to this.

If it is a pocket door, it could be an issue with the track.

The partition with the latch for our bathroom door is not fastened to the ceiling so it will move a bit with travel. I am going to take the time to determine if I can put a couple of screws in the top corner to stabilize it.

Check your jacks and your leveling system to see if you're still indicating level... Our first coach developed an issue where a jack would "leak back" AKA "relax" or "slightly retract" which caused a torsional twist on the chassis. Thankfully the Roadmaster chassis is fairly robust so there was no permanent damage.
