Didn't read any further then this post... Mine had a "warped" front bunk door, which really meant the aluminum frame is bowed out in the center. Which makes sense as how the latches are at the corners.
I opened the hatch a bit, put 2 short 2x4's at the 2 corners and just shoved in at the center. Took a few tries but it straightened out. Probably something I should check again as it's been a good while.
I'll try this when I get home.
I did call Surveyor, and service told me to do this: (which is kinda similar to your fix)
"Open bunk end doors. Place a 2x4 on the ground, and up under the MIDDLE of the bunk end to support the middle only. Undo the adjustment screws near the middle of the bunk, on the outer end (3-4 screws). Get 2 people to bend, or put downward pressure to bend the bunk door back so their is a slight outward bow. Then tighten the screws. They say you should be able to bend it flat again, or slightly concav. She said my doors have lost their camber, and need to be bent back the other way."
that's very interesting. i've never seen that suggestion on any of the hybrid forums i've been on for the past 6 years.
let us know how it works out. if does fix it, maybe we can have it as a sticky in the Hybrid forum.

I'll have to look into this, too. I was the guy posting about adding a third latch a while back since all three of my bunkend doors are warped. Not really in the mood to drop $500/bunkend for new ones from Dutchmen since the ends are not rotted, just warped.
