Basement doors 2007 mountianaire

When my 2007 mountianaire is on the leveling jacks the door side basement doors are rubbing the top of the door making them hard to open unless you pull down on them. It just started doing this this weekend. Any suggestions?

Do not over extend your jacks they will flex the chassis frame rails causing you doors to jam.
If you used AUTO level on uneven pad level your coach manually, your jacks are only to stabilize the coach not over lift.
In my signature below there are links to jack systems in QT's 1 & 2.

Glad you asked the question. My KSDP does the same thing. It only seems to do this when I level on a crooked site and extend the rear jacks more than usual. I have to press down on the door to be able to open it. Amazes me that the frame (Spartan) is that flexible.

Have a nice day - Darrel
