I have 1999 ford PC (23') which I bought (used) last year. I was aware about the bottom of the side entry door problem-  will not shut tight. I can see a 2" gap along the bottom of the door, when it is closed. By being a brand new RV/owner I have no clue how to fix this, can the door be replaced. If so, where can I buy a new door that will match my rig and where can get it installed. Help!

Two inches is one large gap!  If it was a small crack you can usually adjust the striker on the door jam to make the door come in furthur before it actually latches but you are never going to make that kind of a gap up with minor adjustments.  i would venture a guess that water has gotten into the door and the backing material has curled outward.  I would call Kermit/Amanda and have them send you a new door with the matching paint for your year and have a body shop paint the door.  Putting the door on is not that large of a deal or you could have any RV dealer or body shop put it on for you.  You really need to have it fixed for safety purposes.   Best of luck
