Door Closure

2013 Cardinal, but the front door swings past 90 degrees open because the top bracket on the cylinder arm bends the door frame to which it is attached. That frame is too flimsy. Cannot leave door open because it pushes too far open.
Any ideas? We have considered a bulky angle bracket at the top (my idea), suction cups on door and RV body behind door with threaded adjustable rod (wife's idea, non-intrusive).
Anyone experience something similiar? We just want to positively stop door at 90 degrees open.

We have a 2013 georgetown xl 378 and have the same issue with or door swinging open too fast and bending the frame where the hinge is fastened. Causing the frame to pull from the door panel.
I am bringing my coach in to the dealer to have them take a look at it to see if they can do something about it.
I'll let you know the outcome in a week or two what they do about it.
