2011 allegro 34tga entry door sticks

bought new in march 2011 and have been having problems with side door sticking (hard to open from inside once unit is leveled). works ok when not leveled. had to dealer 3 times and they say they adjusted striker each time. works fine until next trip out then here we go again. i have to loosen striker with an allen wrench (and leave it somewhat loose) to open door. also hard to operate deadbolt lock at times. this seems to be temp. related. anyone else had this problem???

My 2010 Phaeton had the main entry door that rubbed against the door frame. This made it hard to open and was actually cutting into the door frame metal.

While at Red Bay, the factory folks ran longer screws into the door frame and pulled it in. No problem since then.

We have the same problem. On one unlevel site I couldn't even close the door. I removed the striker and put a steel washer behind it. That gave me the room when the chassis is flexed.

Similar problem on our 2011 allegro 35QBA. Adjusted the lock mechanism and works fine.

Same problem, tech at Red Bay adjusted it not long after we bought the coach. Has worked great ever since.

I had a problem this morning on my 2010 32BA, couldn't get the door open from the inside. Turned out to be the screen door latch. The two screws had come loose and the lever was out too much and hung up the door. Readjusted it and tightened the screws, problem solved.
