Door Binding

My door was working fine before my trip. When I bought my Parkliner, I noticed I could see light through the door where it should have sealed tightly. That's why there are all the washers on the hinge. Parkliner put them on to adjust the door fit.

So when I got to the beach, the door closed fine. Sometime in the 1st 2 days, it started binding at the top left (opposite side from hinges). The wind was very strong, but I always kept the door fastened when it was open and it never just swung freely in the wind.

The other possible contributing factor was I parked at a fairly steep angle. To level the trailer, the front end had to be raised quite a bit.

In this picture, you can see the door binding on the top left.
