Default sticky door

We have a new keystone on a permanent site and we haven't stayed in it because of the winter,its all leveled out and ready to go .My one problem so far is I have a inner door that will not close. Is this because its cold ? Will it make a difference once it warms up,or maybe when the slideouts go out .I would much appreciate any input on this

I assume you have tried it with your stabilizers NOT down? Most common cause I've seen is trying to use stabilizers to level trailer, and tweaking frame.

There is a built in "arch" in the trailer frame, so if it's leveled on blocks, there may be too much weight on the axles causing the door frame to be out of square. Try jacking up the frame at the axles (both sides) about an inch or so and see if it corrects the door problem.
