Ramp door issue.

Anybody ever have an issue with the ramp door/opening getting tweaked and not opening?
I am perfectly level as a matter of fact this is the levelest site I have ever been in. I unloaded my bikes before unhooking and all was good. I unhooked and leveled up the 5er and now it seems to have tweaked the opening out of square and the door is stuck. Any ideas as to what is happening?
Thanks for the help
SR

I had a similar situation were my ramp door was catawompus and would not close. I loosened the hinge bolts that attach to the frame of the trailer, and used a jack and 2x4 placed under the lower part of bracket, on the low side, to nudge the door back square in the opening and tightened the bolts back securely and voila!

I had a trailer once that if you had the stabilizer jack too tight on the corner the bathroom door would not shut. Maybe you can try to loosen up your stabilizers?

Try re leveling the emptying of garage may have changed weight distribution.

I think MichaelB hit the nail on the head (THANKS). I got home and checked the bolts on the hinges at the frame and they were all loose. Scary !!!! I will Loc-Tite them after squaring up the door. Thanks for all the help.
