Door stop adjustment

I cannot see any way to adjust the door stop (such as the ones we have on our screen doors at home) . The stop is cylinder in shape and mounted at bottom of door. Suggestion?
Thank you

I too had the same problem after a short while of door use on my 2015 24R.

What I noticed is the door opener piston was actually loose and could be turned in a clockwise motion to tighten. This lessened the door travel to where it would no longer bump into the awning.

So, your saying you can spin the piston while in its fastened position, and the travel of the piston decreases. Can you explain how the adjustment process works. Thanks

Yes, that's correct. I was able to spin the piston in a clockwise motion and hence it lessened the travel distance.

On my model, the door stop is located at the bottom of the door and is fastened to the door threshold. At the point of the threshold connection is where I "tightened" the piston by turning it clockwise.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions. I just moved the mounting point on the door as suggested by MikeA and that fixed it. I will take a closer look at piston closer and see if end spins clock wise and changes its range of motion.
