Maybe needs a lift cable adjustment?

    When I set up my Fleetwood Resolute and install the door and seal it with the velcro inclosure, one side of the canvas is tighter than on the other side of the door. Seems like maybe tight enough to cause the canvas to start to come out of track a little and is pretty hard to pull towards the door to seal it on the latch side. Hinge side is fine with enough slack in canvas. Could this be solved with a cable adjustment?

    As long as its not tearing and its stays sealed I won't worry about it. Wish my were tighter on my Fleetwood Niagra (07). But it does seal so if its not broke I don't fix it.

    On my Westlake I had a similar problem. The way I solved it was to install the canvass into the door before I pulled out and set up the bed end on the tight side.

    I had the same problem then I remembered on this site not to pull the bed all the way out. Pushed the bed in a little, sealed the door and then set the bed up. worked fine.

    Thanks for the replys! I will do what you all have suggested. Who knows, maybe my dealer told us to do that when we went thru the set-up last year at the dealership. Thanks all!!
