Outside wall expanding at night

My 35' travel trailer has aluminum frame with composite walls. At night time after sun goes down I have trouble closing the bedroom door. It seams that the outside wall has expanded and the door frame has gotten smaller because the door will not close but as soon as the sun comes up and it warms up just a little everything works fine. Any suggestions

Mel is correct - 1st make sure all the door hinge screws are tight and the door is square (there is an equal gap all around), then sand down the area that is sticking.

Mine was sticking at the bottom, I just used a pocket knife to 'plane' a small amount off the bottom 2"/corner of the door frame.

The door is sticking in the center at the latch, During the day there is a good 3/8" gap at the latch and after the sun goes down and the wall cools down the door will not close.
