I had that problem too. I had to disassemble the door panel by drilling out the corner rivets and slide the edges apart from their corner brackets (they are built the same way that an aluminum screen frame is built) then I had to discard the soaked filler material and replace it with 2 thin layers of a plastic sheet product that signs are made of. (I forget where I acquired this) and reassemble the door panel and reinstall it in the baggage opening.

I would do this for a door, but not a whole trailer.
Yes Frederick, my doors are very similar to yours. (Mine have rounded corners). I also considered replacing them with painted plywood, but it would be nice to preserve the original design if I can. They are hard to take apart because they used a lot of rivets.

Anyway, so far I have drilled four 1/4" holes in the baggage door. Two at the top and two at the bottom, and leaving them open in the direct sun. Will see if that changes things before I get creative with a funnel with a hair dryer or something!
