Not sure how to fix the door. Stripping was coming off at the top so we replaced it and then had a difficult time shutting the door as it would squish the stripping. Hinges seem okay. If you look at the pictures of the outside, the gap in the door gets wider at the top. We are new to this, any input would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Not a Trillium owner, but it appears your hinges may be quite worn - the screws don't line up any more.

The Trillium hinge is a rare beast. They used a commercial refrigerator hinge made by a company called Kason. Kason is still in business but their model No. 139 with a 3/8" offset is tough to find. I found a spare set at McMaster Carr, part no. 1276A52. They might have them? Trillium Outback in Canada has them. Trilliumrv lists them as well. One member found a set with zero off set on ebay and added a spacer. Unfortunately anything found at the hardware store will require a lot of improvising.

Measure between the upper and lower screws. They all should be the same. If not, your door may need resetting. Many were screwed into a piece of wood in the wall of the trailer that rots over time.
