2015 roo 23ikss, door hits awning

Is this normal? When the awning is out the door will hit the awning arm. I'm thinking that the gas shock was mounted wrong. I wouldn't think they would design this flaw

Thanks

I have that same problem with my short slide. I'm concerned about the corners of the slideout wearing at it. Maybe there is an adjustment on the awning where it attaches to the TT?

The awning I usually stop it right before it pitches itself down when it comes to the end. Gives ya a few inches between fabric and slide out

Oops, just re-read your first post and saw you were saying the awning "arm." My bad. So my problem is not as related as I thought. Good idea on my problem though. Haven't messed with it much yet, but it should be a matter of adjusting as you said. But I would have thought that since it was factory installed that they would have checked clearance. Maybe there is an adjustment somewhere.

Maybe take a pic of your door sometime when you have it out. Your problem does indeed sound like it isn't supposed to happen.

You can see if you can get a shock that is slightly shorter or you may have to drill a new hole and move one end of the shock to get the clearance you need and then seal the old hole. If the shock is on the bottom of the door, drill the new hole in the door,if the shock is on the top of the door, drill the hole in the door opening frame, this would minimise the possibility of water getting in.
Hope this helps.
