The pins on my Solera are at 19 1/2" and 2 1/2". The angle of the door is just fine as it cannot open much farther without interfering with the awning bracket. So, is the problem that the spring is not compressed enough when the door is closed?
To remedy that without changing the angle of the door, I would have to move both pins. The one on the door would have to move closer to the hinge and the one on the door sill would have to move farther away from the hinge. The down side of that is that the spring would then intrude on more of the entry space, as it is mounted on the bottom of the door.
How do you relocate the pins? I cannot tell how they are attached. The one on the door sill rotates freely without going in or out. I haven't tried unscrewing the one on the bottom of the door. Is there no reinforcement under these pins?
OldCoot, it would appear that the compressed length of your spring with the door closed is the same after moving the pins as before moving them (20.5 - 6.5 = 14 vs 18 - 4 = 14) If that is the case, I'm not sure what explains the improvement that you experienced. I would love to be able to achieve those results.
