Sagging Stowage Compartment Door

The door for my main storage compartment is sagging and scrapes along the bottom edge when closing. I don't see any way to adjust the hinges. Does anyone here have a fix for this?

Door sag

I had a similar issue with one of my front compartment doors. It isn't the door that's the problem, wasn't with mine anyway. My frame wasn't installed straight so I loosened most of the screws on the top, bottom and hinge side from the inside and moved it until the door was "square" with the frame. Then reinstalled the screws, most in different but close locations to the existing holes. Worked great for me. Hope yours works out as well.

Our 25.5 has the same rear cargo door and same issue...slight bind on the lower frame edge with lower door edge. I just give it a slight lift up when opening and closing. I take it with a grain of salt as (in my opinion) the entire Thor Vegas / Axis line is just thrown together with little quality control. Love 'em (Axis / Vegas)... honestly I'm just satisfied when the the said door closes, secures and is water tight.

I suspect our frame is not square as mentioned above.

There's alway a little bit of room for adjustment in those mounting screws. With a bit of patience and a second set of hands: you'll be squared away in no time!
