I have a Class A 2006 Holiday Rambler Ambassor. I cannot keep it from leaking at the top of the entrance door. I have tried to adjust door and have pulled it in so far that I can't get it open. Has anyone ever tried to bend the top of the door in? Does anyone have any ideas. I also tried to put a drip edge over the door. It would not pull tight enough. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Try a piece of stick on weather strip, it's only a couple bucks for a roll. I used it to seal a compartment door gasket that was leaking and it worked, might work for you and if it doesn't, just pull it off.

My Camelot was doing the same thing. Used caulk behine the door then put the screws back in place to compress the caulk. Also put some flexable gutter over the door so water goes off to the side of the door.


Tis another fine day to serve in and for the glory of the Corps. Every day is a holiday and every meal a feast.

I can't say if this will work on a mh door, but on automobiles the put a block of wood or a mallet a couple feet from to or bottom between door and the jam and tweak it a little. Just don't over do it. YMMV
